Bed bugs are not picky eaters, nor do they discriminate on location. Bed bugs have been documented and observed to infest homeless shelters, to nicer upper-end hotels such as the Hilton in Cincinnati. In fact, hotels and hostels are a popular “hot spot” for bed bug activity due to the frequency of people coming in and out of the building. Watch the Hilton Cincinnati video below:

Having an unclean home full of clutter will only give bed bugs more locations for hiding and safe harborage. Next time your friends or family tell you to shower because you have bed bugs, or clean up your house (although both are a good idea with or without a bed bug infestation), you can safely assure them that doing so will not rid you of bed bugs.
