The last thing anyone wants to think about is bed bugs. But the reality is that if you have bed bugs, you can’t help but think about them.

Now, bed bugs got their name for a reason. It is because they tend to live in or very close to beds. These pests will generally be found within eight feet of where people sleep. But in some less common cases, bed bugs may infest areas that are nowhere near a bed.

It is a good idea to be made aware of where one might find bed bugs. Earthwise Pest Management, your pest control company in Sacramento, offers places where bed bugs might be hiding.

School Buses

Public transportation is a very likely place where you might find bed bugs. Subway cars and busses are especially likely to fall victim to a bed bug infestation. Bed bugs will come out and feed when the bus or subway car is full of people.

Video Game Consoles

While you are sitting there playing the latest Call of Duty or Madden 2019, there could be mini spies lurking in your gaming system. It’s doubtful that they are there to just watch you play.

Computers

Your computer might not be as warm and big as your bed, but for a bed bug, it still makes a dandy place to hang out and breed.

Movie Theaters

It is terrifying but true; bed bugs have been reported in movie theaters all across the United States. Though considered uncommon, bed bugs have found their way into movie theaters. You might want to wait for the latest Star Wars movie to come out on DVD.

Retail Stores

Bed bugs are excellent hitchhikers and have found their way into retail stores. Bed bugs can be carried in personal items and take up residence in the menswear section of your favorite department store. You might want to take a closer look at those jeans you want to try on.

Office Buildings

If you think there might be a bed bug problem where you work, you should start storing your belongings in plastic bins just in case.
Stuffed Animals

Closets are wonderful hiding places for bed bugs. Anything soft, warm and shaggy can offer shelter to these pests. Perhaps it is time to clear out the stuffed animals you have been storing in the closet.

Airplanes

Bed bugs aren’t ashamed to fly coach and there are plenty of places on an airplane for them to hide. Once in flight, there are plenty of sleeping passengers for bed bugs to feed upon.

Purses

Some women carry everything but the kitchen sink in their purses, and this includes a few bed bugs. Bed bugs are unexpected shopping buddies as they hide in the pockets and seams of a purse.

Electrical Outlets

Bed bugs can be found behind the electrical sockets in your home where they remain warm and safe. If you notice black streaks running from your outlets, it is a sure sign they are there.
