Bed bugs are an ectoparasite which means they feed on the blood of people and have been around since cave men (not implying Geico commercials).
You can get beg bugs from virtually anywhere.
Anywhere you spend a lot of time in your home is where bed can end up settling.
It has nothing to do with lifestyle, income level, or traits about you or your family. It has more to do with the fact that PEOPLE are THEIR food source and bed bugs are pretty successful at hitchiking.
Because of this, they are found most common where people spend the most time, which is in bed. Hence, bed bugs. They are not going to “SPRING UP” in your house. They are usually brought in the home from somewhere else.
Beds, hotels, luggage, cars, offices, hospitals, nursing homes, and schools are the most common places where bed bugs are discovered. And they can be found all over the world.
Yes, they are world wide…
As we travel more, they travel with us.
Luggage is common place where they end up.
You can do something as simple as going on vacation and come back with bed bugs.
