Bed bugs are blood-sucking parasites that prefer to live in nooks and crannies near their food source. This means that you can find bed bugs hiding in the seams and crevices of beds, couches, chairs, drawers, lamps, headboards, and anywhere else where they can feel their back and belly touching something else. Bed bugs are attracted to heat, so they can easily be picked up from nearly anywhere -- hotels, restaurants, movie theaters, dormitories, lounging areas, etc. They can even be brought into your home by guests or in your luggage. That's why even the cleanest of homes and businesses can end up having a bed bug infestation.
To determine if you have bed bugs, check your mattress and sheets for blood stains or smears. You may also notice small, raised welts or a mild to severe rash, if you are sensitive, on your body. Another tell-tale sign of a bed bug infestation is having the bites or welts occur in straight lines. Since bed bugs don't really make you sick and they don't transmit diseases, they are considered more of a nuisance than a health hazard. Still, no one wants to remain the primary blood meal for a bunch of bed bugs.
While there are actions you can take to get rid of a bed bug infestation on your own, such as washing clothes and sheets in hot water, it is generally recommended that you call a licensed pest control company.
