Signs of Bed Bugs

They are typically found in bedrooms, hiding in cracks and crevices during the day. However, they can also be found in other places, such as the living room, where people tend to spend large amounts of time.

The most common shelters for bed bugs are in the seams of mattresses, in crevices in the bed frame, behind furniture surrounding the bed (especially the headboard) or where the wall meets the floor.
