7. They Don't Just Live in Beds

Bed bugs are commonly found in beds because they do not like to travel far for a meal, but they can be found in other places, too. Anywhere humans sit and spend a lot of time is a perfect place for bed bugs to hide, including sofas, buses, movie theaters, and even hospitals. It is a common misconception that cleanliness can prevent a bed bug infestation, but they are attracted to blood, not dirt.
