Bed bugs can cause bites and aggravating scratches, you’ll know if you have been bitten. The good news is they don’t pass on infections or other diseases. They tend to hide in very tiny cracks and crevices, around the bed frame, in the joints of a mattress. They hide behind head boards and under upholstery. Bed bugs do not fly since they do not have wings. They are able to crawl and move short distances within an infected area, and slowly spread to other rooms in the home or business. Another way bed bugs move around is by finding their way into purses, backpacks, suitcases, briefcases, clothing, and jackets.
