Bedbugs can live up to eighteen months withuot feeding.

There are several ways to get a bedbug infestation. The most common is picking them up while traveling. Places like hotels, bed and breakfasts, hostels and motels.

Once bedbugs are in a home they usually stay close to their prey. The most common areas they can be found are in the folds of the mattress, bed frames, dressers and baseboards. As the infestation grows they will spread from those points to any crack and crevice. They can be found up to Fifty feet from their hosts. Detection in bites people find on themselves. As time goes on bites increase and individual bedbugs can be found.
