Like their name suggests, bedbugs are most often found within the crevices of homeowners’ beds. These elusive and nocturnal creatures often hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes until it is time for them to feast on a meal of blood.
These small creatures like to reside within small cracks and crevices close to a human environment. If you suspect a bedbug infestation, be sure to check behind baseboards, wallpaper, upholstery and in furniture crevices.
Although bedbugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal, they primarily choose unsuspecting, sleeping humans. Though these creatures do not transmit diseases, their bites can become red and itchy welts.
If you are returning from a vacation, be sure to vacuum your suitcases well. Check your sheets for telltale blood spots and consider bringing a large plastic bag to keep your suitcase in during your hotel stays.
