Bed bugs are nocturnal creatures that come out during the night to take a blood meal from unsuspecting, sleeping humans. They feast during the night, but they are rarely seen during the day. This is because they hide in concealed, often unnoticed locations. If you are trying to determine if you have bed bugs or hope to get rid of an infestation, you will need to learn where these hiding places are located. It would also be helpful to familiarize yourself with the commonsigns of bed bugs, so you will know what you are looking for.
