Finding bed bugs can be a challenge to the untrained eye. So, it is going to take a little detective work. Bed bugs normally stay close to their food source, which makes the bedroom a prime location to begin your search. Check your mattress, bedding, box spring, headboard, and bed frame for signs of an infestation. As an infestation grows, however, they will normally spread further away from the main feeding area.
With further infestation, bed bugs can also be found behind wallpaper and picture frames, in the folds of curtains, under carpets, in furniture, and even inside clocks, phones, televisions, smoke detectors, and electrical sockets.
