Welcome to e health forum.

Bed bugs typically cluster together in out-of-the-way areas. However, some bed bugs will live by themselves, away from the rest of an infestation. The best way to determine if you have an infestation is to look for bed bugs where you sleep or rest.

In bedrooms, look particularly on and around:

- boxsprings, mattresses, bed frames, tufts, folds, and buttons on mattresses
- furniture such as desks and chairs
- behind wallpaper, clocks and pictures
- cracks in wood floors and under the edge of carpet

when you travel, check your luggage, where you typically set it down when you enter your home and where you store it

While bed bugs are most commonly found in bedrooms, infestations can occur in other rooms, including bathrooms, living rooms and laundry rooms.

It would be recommended that you seek assistance from a professional pest control company (exterminator).

Controlling an infestation requires very detailed work, moving furniture and taking it apart, and specialty equipment. Careful inspections must be completed along with non-chemical controls such as heat treatments, vacuuming and steam treatments, and insecticide treatments.

The insecticides used are commercial products requiring special equipment and training. Over-the-counter insecticides and home remedies are not effective in controlling bed bugs.

Pest control services use heat treatment, which requires specialized equipment to raise the temperatures in target areas to 118°F and then maintain that temperature for at least 70 minutes. All stages of bed bugs are killed when this is done properly. While very effective, heat treatment does not prevent bed bugs from being brought back into a home and reinfesting it.

It is important to cooperate with a pest control service. However, it should not be necessary to move or throw away your furniture and your belongings, especially from an apartment or condominium. Sometimes furniture is removed and heat treated in a container but it would be rare to actually need to throw items away.

i hope this information is helpful
