Bed Bugs may be found in places like homes, hotels, theaters, restaurants, etc. but are being seen more often in apartments, hotels, homes, shelters, dorms, and nursing homes; anywhere that provides space for multiple people to stay.
Not sure where they came from? You don’t necessarily have to stay at a hotel to bring them home. Bed bugs can easily be transported through clothing, furniture, bedding, suitcases, boxes or even hair.
Bed bug infestations are not caused by poor sanitary conditions. A single bedbug can easily hitch a ride without being noticed. That one small insect can quickly develop, if conditions are right, in as fast as a month. They are able to produce three or four generations per year. So, as you can see, failure to detect an infestation early can make the bed bug problem worse over time. Recognizing the signs of bed bugs and taking immediate steps to reduce their population can greatly lessen the risk of a severe infestation.
