Can You See Bed Bugs?

And if you do see them, they’re small, easy to miss, and remarkably similar to other bugs.

Where Can Bed Bugs Hide?
Bed bug infestations most commonly form when someone inadvertently brings them inside. They can’t move far, but they can easily catch a ride on luggage, purses, and sometimes within the folds of clothing. That’s why they can be such a problem after traveling, or when adult children come home from college. Bed bugs can also be introduced through infested furniture brought into the home. Regardless of how they get in, bed bugs have a way of quickly spreading into the many hiding spots around your space.
How to Look For Bed Bugs in Broken Arrow OK
Since they’re the most active at night, what do bed bugs do in the daytime? We’ve said before that they like to hide, and since they’re slow crawlers they tend to congregate close to potential food sources. This means mattresses and bedding, as well as upholstered furniture. They could even hide behind wallpaper, under the edges of carpeting, or along any narrow crevice in your property.
