HERE ARE SEVERAL PRECAUTIONS YOU CAN TAKE TO HELP PREVENT BED BUGS FROM ENTERING YOUR HOME:
The best thing you can do is keep an eye out for bed bugs in your home before it becomes an infestation. You will want to look for signs of bed bugs where you sleep or rest (beds, recliners, sofa).
Bed bugs are very good at hiding in all kinds of cracks and crevices so you will want to grab a flashlight and check behind wallpaper, picture frames, under the edges of carpeting, any cracks in wood floors, and inside of all furniture.
If you travel, you'll want to check your luggage and the area where you store it for signs of bed bugs.
