In today’s world, “2020“, there are tons of places that could potentially be infested with bed bugs. Where you lay to sleep each night, sit watching tv or whatever place you relax in are potential places bed bugs will hide in. Bed bugs can feed move around during any point of the day. They are not nocturnal only and will take any given chance to feed off your blood, day or night. If we tried to list every single place that could harbor bed bug activity, then this article would be never ending. Instead, we will name some of the most likely places to give you bed bugs that are repeatedly infesting Americans homes, and the rest of the world, on a regular basis. Remember that most homes and businesses only react to infestations after the infestation has already occurred. Establishments and residences that have preventative bed bug services performed with a non repellent chemical residual at regular intervals, are less likely to pass on bed bug activity to you.
