Unfortunately, it is easy to pick up bed bugs in many places, such as hotels, stores, offices, and gyms. Places people hang out, which means you can get them anywhere. Bed bugs are small so it is easy for them to hide in luggage, purses, briefcases and other personal belongings – even you. Once you have them inside it is almost impossible to control them without the help of an experienced pest professional. The best thing you can do if you find you have bed bugs, is to get them treated early.
