How You’re Attracting Bed Bugs To Your Home, And It's Not Poor Hygiene
Though you might assume bed bugs are drawn to those with poor hygiene, entomologist Dr. Jim Fredericks said that these insects are not all that particular about their
food source.
Fredericks explained while talking exclusively to House Digest: "They're drawn to the warm, steady stream of carbon dioxide a person emits while they sleep. Bed bugs aren't picky."
Frequent travel can also make you more vulnerable to an infestation because the insects travel faster during the summertime when people are more likely to be vacationing.
According to Fredricks, they make their way onto personal belongings and clothes. When these items come into contact with an infested surface, bed bugs are able to crawl onto them.
