Bed bugs are a well-traveled type of pest, easily hitching rides on people’s suitcases, boxes, shoes, or furniture. People often deal with bed bugs after having stayed in a hotel or apartment where an infestation was present and the bugs made their way back to their own home by climbing onto personal belongings.

For this reason, our team wants you to have all the most pertinent information about these creatures including where they are most often found.
Where are the Most Common Places to Find Bed Bugs?
As their name suggests, bed bugs are most often found in mattresses, box springs, and in the folded areas of sheets and blankets. While they are most often found in bedding material, bed bugs are also known to make their way into upholstery, baseboards, wallpaper, electrical switch plates, backpacks, and in some cases, under seats in cars, trains, and buses.
Most bed bug infestations are found in single-family homes and apartment complexes, but they can also be encountered in:
- Hotels and motels
- Nursing homes
- Schools and daycare centers
- Office buildings
- College dormitories
- Public transportation
Bed bugs are a common pest and have been found in all 50 states in the U.S., as well as throughout most regions of the world.
