Bedbugs are fast little bugs and they can hide anywhere. I had them once and I would find them on books, shelves, bookbags, everywhere. They take forever to get rid of. I hired a professional and it still didn’t get rid of them. I ended up having to go over the apt like 15 times looking everywhere at every inch till I finally got them all. There were eggs all over the curtains and I washed them like five times just to make sure the bugs were dead.

You probably picked them up while traveling, a guest could have brought it on their clothes, or they could come from the neighbors.

I remember hearing something on the radio about bedbugs coming down the wall and climbing the legs of beds. The suggested action was to place the legs of the bed in a plastic container inside a larger container of water. The explanation being that bedbugs cannot cross water. Probably garbage but an interesting thought. Good luck.

call pest control they will come out and spray your house two sometimes three times about three weeks apart-they can come from any place public transportation, friends car, friends house, used furniture from unknowen source etc. the only way to rid them is one part lysol to four parts water-wash everything backs of pictures, tables, baseboards, mist onto your carpet the day they come spray and this will irritatre them out of hiding. Wash all your clothes linens bedding toys with bleach and water and use hot to dry, I put our clothes into black trash bags and set them out in the sun for two days in 104 degree weather. If you do this all and don’t miss anything you can get rid of them in as little as about two months.
