How do bed bugs get in?
Realizing you have a bed bug infestation is alarming, but it is becoming a more common issue. While many people associate them with unclean conditions, bed bugs are highly mobile and can infest even the cleanest homes. Identifying the source may help you prevent re-infestation and alert others to a potential problem. Common ways that bed bugs get into your home include:
- Second-hand goods—Whether you picked up a “perfectly good-looking” couch from the curb or purchased a new outfit from a thrift store, second-hand goods are a notorious source of bed bugs.
- Recent travel—Hotels, children’s summer camps, and college dorms can all harbor bed bugs. Many destinations are vigilant about checking for infestations, but recent populations can go unnoticed.
- Neighbors and visitors—Bed bugs can easily hitch a ride on clothing, inside backpacks, and on any other fabric and end up in your home. If you had recent overnight guests, be sure to alert them to the issue.
