When you think of bed bug control, your bed is probably the first place that comes to mind as a target area for getting rid of these pests. While your bed is the most common host for bed bugs, did you know that these bugs can infest many other different areas around your home?
Here are a few of the most common areas around your home for bed bugs to get into.
• Furniture. Dressers, nightstands, bookshelves, couches, and other furniture around your home can be the perfect hiding spots for bed bugs. They can hide in the interior of furniture, such as along seams, runners, and other areas not easily seen, so a more in-depth inspection may be necessary to find all bed bugs in your furniture.
• Walls. Another common area that may require bed bug control is in and around the walls. If you suspect you have bed bugs, it’s a good idea to check behind wall hangings, wallpaper, around window sills, smoke alarms, and any other wall fixtures.
• Anywhere by your bed. Bed bugs that have made their home in your bed likely travel to surrounding areas. Boxes, rugs, and any other surfaces around your bed are susceptible to a bed bug infestation, so don’t limit your search or bed bug control to just one area.
