Check behind all picture frames as bed bugs like to hide in dark places.
Wall Lights and Outlets
Inspect all wall lights and outlets, especially near beds, chairs and couches.
Night Stands and Drawers
Nightstands and drawers should be looked through as many travelers place personal items and clothing inside that could easily transfer bed bugs.
As always, check headboards, mattresses, bed springs and the legs of the bed for any molted bed bug skins, white eggs or pepper-like stains.
Chairs and Couches
Ensure you check the chairs and couches in your room for any bed bugs before sitting down.
Floor Crown Molding and Carpet
Since bed bugs like dark places, inspect floor crown molding and the carpet near it.
Curtains are also a place that bed bugs like to hide so be sure to thoroughly inspect them.
