One of the ways to combat the increase in the bed bug population is to be cautious when you travel. Bed bugs hide out in places other than the bedroom, including kitchens, bathrooms, movie theaters and airplanes. The Chicago Tribune reports that cleanliness is not a factor in bed bug infestations, though clutter is. Reduce clutter in your home to reduce hiding places for bed bugs. Also vacuum frequently to remove any suspected hitchhikers. These tiny pests are roughly the size of an apple seed when fully grown and are not easy to see.
