Where do I look for with Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs can be located by the presence of small reddish-brown to black fecal deposits on the walls or other areas where they might congregate or hide.

Once in the home, bed bugs become established in:

  • Any convenient crack or crevice
  • Along the seams or in the buttons of mattresses
  • The coils and frame of the box spring
  • Wooden bedsteads
  • Bed framing
  • Upholstered furniture
  • The backing of pictures
  • Window and door molding/framing
  • Behind wallpaper
  • Cracks in floors and ceilings
  • Between wooden floorboards
  • Behind switch plates, conduit etc.

    In heavy infestations, they may be found in wall voids, attics or other enclosed places.
