Where do Bed Bugs Hide?
A professional bed bug inspector will be sure to check under and behind all furniture, bedding, shelves, drawers and other items present, because bed bugs are great at hiding.
It is most important to check all crevices and potential hiding spots and not just the bed itself.
Bed bugs prefer dark spaces so they can stay well hidden during daylight hours. Under normal conditions, bed bugs remain very close to where people rest and sleep.
Inspecting Multi-Unit Buildings For Bed Bed Bugs

People fail to report bed bug activity for a variety of reasons. This often leads to bed bug activity spreading and infesting other areas of the building. It is very important to report and treat bed bug activity as soon as possible!
Are Bed Bug Detection Dogs Reliable?
