How Do You Get Bed Bugs?

Unfortunately, these troublesome pests are good travelers, able to come into your home in many different ways, including:

  • Visitors: Bed bugs commonly enter homes when house guests come to visit, hiding in luggage or coming in on clothing.
  • Used items: When you buy items from consignment or thrift stores, such as clothing, furniture, or mattresses—and those items came from places with bed bugs—then you can bring them home that way.
  • Stored items: When you keep sheets, towels, and luggage in storage, they can become gathering places for bed bugs. So, before you use them, wash linens in hot water, and thoroughly check your suitcases and travel bags before and after you use them.
  • Pet bedding: Although bed bugs don’t linger on pets like fleas and ticks do, they can bite your pets and nestle into their bedding and any clothing they wear. It can help to wash the bedding at your washer’s highest setting.

Reports suggest that populations have been increasing since the 1990s. Although no one knows why, for sure, it’s likely that increased travel, nationally and globally, is contributing to their resurgence.

What Do Bed Bugs Look Like?

They’re small and reddish-brown with oval-shaped, flat bodies, easily confused with other kinds of bugs. They just a tad bigger than a tiny apple seed. If they’ve just eaten, they can look a little bloated.

Frequently Asked Questions

These tiny pests are elusive, hardy, and always on the move. The cleanliness of a dwelling has nothing to do with attracting bed bugs or preventing them from getting in. Bed bugs have continued to adapt to human environments and can thrive in a wide range of temperature and many types of conditions.

Bed bugs will take any opportunity to hitch a ride into your home on luggage, furniture, and other soft goods such as clothing. When traveling, put a plastic trash bag or other protective covering on your luggage while you’re in a hotel and keep your suitcases off of the bed. Check hotel bedding, box springs and mattresses for tiny, pepper-like stains when you arrive, and thoroughly inspect all of your belongings before bringing them inside when you get home. Also inspect any used furniture or clothing you’ve acquired before you bring it inside.

Once indoors, these pests quickly spread from room to room in homes or hotels, traveling through pipes, on luggage and clothing, and even in vacuum cleaners. Because they can live for months without eating, they can be very difficult to control.

Definitely not! They can be found virtually anywhere, not only in soft goods such as beds and furniture, but also behind electrical outlets and in crevices along baseboards.

Bed bugs do not transmit diseases to humans, but their bites can cause itchy welts that may become infected if scratched.
