Bedbugs are concentrated in the areas where people live but are inactive or in a state of rest. They are typically found in beds and bedrooms, recliners, upholstered chairs and sofas. Because bedbugs feed on blood, you may see evidence of blood on your mattress as well as visible bites on your body. Bedbug elimination requires diligent action from the home owner. It is also important that you do not bring anymore of these pests into your home.
DO NOT discard infested furniture — treat it first. Bedbugs are dropped throughout the house as it is being moved outside attempts are made to remove an infested mattress or other items. This will spread the bedbugs into other areas of your house
