Where do be bugs come from?

    The biggest question asked by many annoyed homeowners with bed bug infestations is where do bed bugs come from?  Even homeowners that maintain the highest standards of hygiene and order come into contact with these bloods sucking parasites, but how?


    For starters, there is not a single country in the world that has not been visited by bed bugs. Since the early epochs of history bed bugs have always managed to stow themselves away in the bags of unsuspecting travelers.  Bed bugs being just ¼ inch in size can easily sneak into baggage, luggage, clothes, trailers, planes, trains, buses, anything and everything without being noticed.  If you have recently traveled or had a visitor staying in your home, chances are that the bed bugs have hitched a ride in the travel luggage or baggage.  They tend to hide in the seams of baggage and become uninvited guests in your home.  If your next doors neighbors have a tendency to visit you, it’s possible they’ve brought a few bed bugs into your home.  Your laundry room may also provide a way for bed bugs to enter your home.  One day, if you’re allowing a friend or neighbor to use your laundry room chances are that they have passed on a few bed bugs to you without you knowing it.  Many people launder their bed linens and clothes in case of an infestation and may unconsciously bring along some bed bugs in their laundry bags.

    The bed bug is a well-traveled parasite and can always find a way to make a person’s home their home.
