Where are bed bugs found?

Bed bug infestations usually occur around or near the areas where people sleep. Their presence is not determined by the cleanliness of the living conditions where they are found. Bed bugs may be found in homes, apartments, shelters, rooming houses, hotels, cruise ships, buses, trains, and dorm rooms.

Bed bugs commonly hide during the day in places like seams of mattresses, box springs, bed frames, headboards, dresser tables, inside cracks or crevices, behind wallpaper, or any other clutter or objects around a bed.

Bed bugs have been shown to be able to travel over 100 feet in a night but tend to live within 8 feet of where people sleep.
