Who Gets Bed Bugs?
Any home or business can be infested by bed bugs. Bed bugs infest clean and luxurious homes and businesses just as often as they do other properties. Unlike cockroaches, which tend to multiply in unsanitary conditions, bed bugs can thrive and reproduce in the cleanest environment so long as a blood source — a human or other animal — is present.
Bed bugs are most frequently found in high-turnover places where people sleep, such as hotels, motels, cruise ships, dormitories, barracks, shelters, apartments, timeshare condominiums, prisons, nursing homes and hospitals.
But because bed bugs often hitch rides on people and their belongings, they can also infest private homes, office buildings, self-service laundries, dry cleaners, schools, movie theatres, thrift stores, high-end clothing stores, furniture rental stores, warehouses, storage facilities, moving vans, trains, buses, airplanes, and ferries.
