How to Treat Bed Bugs in Bedding and Linens

Where Do Bed Bugs Live and Hide?

Bed bugs take advantage of their flattened bodies by hiding in narrow places, emerging at night to find a host and can be difficult to find. Bed bugs can remain undetected and lay eggs in walls and crevices, box springs, cabinets, suitcases, carpets, books, baseboards, clothing and behind picture frames. Comforters are also inviting to bed bug populations.
