Bed Bugs Could More Accurately Be Called “Room Bugs”
Although I find it wishful thinking to believe this post will lead to any mass movement to change the word “bed bug” to “room bug,” but I did want make a point. It’s a misconception that bed bugs only reside in the bed. In fact, many bed bugs can be found all over the room including behind picture frames, between carpeting and baseboards, in the cracks of furniture and even inside electronics.
Treating just the bed will likely not work as entire room treatments are necessary to wipe out an infestation.
