How far do bed bugs travel at night?
Simply so, can you get bed bugs from walking in someone's house?
After all, bed bugs are one of the most difficult and traumatizing pests to deal with. You certainly wouldn't want the bugs to spread to you. It is theoretically possible to catch bed bugs directly from a person whose home is infested. However, it's quite rare for this to happen.
Secondly, do Bed Bugs stay in one area? Once they have fed, bed bugs will return to hiding. Bed bugs hide in any tight, dark, undisturbed locations near sleeping or resting areas. Bed bugs tend to live in groups, but depending on a number of factors they will move to other areas. Female bed bugs will leave a group if they have been mated multiple times.
Just so, how long does it take for a bed bug infestation to manifest?
Generally it takes at least seven weeks for a bed bug to grow from an egg to an adult, so there should be no new adults from eggs during that period. Therefore, if many adult bugs are present one can reasonably assume that the infestation has been there for more than seven weeks.
Where do you sleep when you have bed bugs?
If you suspect there are bed bugs where you sleep, don't begin sleeping in another bed, or on the sofa. Do not go to stay with someone else. The bugs may follow you to your guest room or sofa and then it will be much harder to get rid of them.
