How did I get bed bugs?

Bed bugs are usually transported from place to place as people travel. The slim flat bodies of bed bugs allow them to hide and fit into the smallest of spaces like in the seams of luggage, overnight bags, folded clothes, bedding, and furniture. Bed bugs can go for long periods of time without a blood meal.

Most people do not realize they are transporting stow-away bed bugs as they travel from location to location, infecting areas as they travel.
