Are bed bugs bugging you too much? Having a difficult time tracing them? One common mistake that everyone makes while dealing with the bed bugs is that they only inspect the beds. Because they go by the name and assume that beds are the only place where bed bugs breed, but these tiny travelers have no particular destination. They keep moving from place to place, and they use many house items for their hitch-hike. So these minuscule creatures can be anywhere in your house. But here are some shocking places you may not be aware of.
Where Do Bed Bugs Hide?
Wallets and Purses
You probably didn’t expect this name on the list. But your wallets/purses act like bed bugs porters and accompany you wherever you go. Though you use your wallet quite often, it’s unlikely that you catch their sight because they hide in seams and inner pockets. Whenever you place your wallet on the ground or couch, the bed bugs hop and start breeding even there. So, bugs hiding in your wallet/purse can be detrimental to places you travel or visit.
Alarm Clocks and Books
Bed bugs are quite wise to pick a place like alarms. Since many keep their alarm close to their beds, It is fabulously convenient for bedbugs to take trips between bed and alarm. While treating bed bugs, many focus on beds and ignore something as tiny as an alarm, but guess what? That’s where they stay, somewhere warm and safe.
Laundry Baskets and Cupboards
Clothes are dear to bedbugs and cupboards make the perfect hiding place for bed bugs. They multiply when the clothes in the cupboard are left unused for a long time. Since cupboard places are usually dingy, bed bugs sometimes continue to breed even if there are no clothes in there.
Ceilings, Walls, and Picture Frames
Bed bugs are nocturnal pests; night time is their favorite playtime. As soon as the light goes down, they emerge from their hiding places and start climbing the walls and ceilings. If the walls and ceilings have any holes, cracks, then they may find permanent shelter there. Another hiding place is picture frames. Not many notice these places until there is a severe infestation.
Carpet Edges and Baseboards
Carpets are typically woven with hard thread or some rubbery material. They make a feasible place for bed bugs to continue their productivity. Most times, bugs hiding in carpets go unnoticed.
Couches, Chairs, Furniture
Due warmth and comfort, couches, chairs are people’s go-to places. Many would spend time there working, chatting, and sleeping. But what they don’t see is blood-sucking pests hiding inside them. These places are super convenient for bed bugs for nesting, feeding, breeding, and hiding.
If you have created a tiny library in your house, then you should inspect the place for bed bugs right away. Besides containing books, the library may also house annoying residents like ‘bed bugs.’ These bed bugs hide between pages and at the corners. Therefore, it’s good to dust off your books once in a while.
