So, the problem is greater than the physical problem, since the bugs bite at night, while the victim sleeps. Often, the bites are mistaken for dermatological conditions, until the bugs are found. Typically, bedbugs are going to be within 10-15 feet of your bed. They will usually be along the rim. They will also be underneath the box spring. There will be in the nightstands. There will also be bloodstains. Some bedbugs are resistant to certain insecticides. Prevention is very important, because treatment is so difficult. Treatment is generally targeted.
