Bed bugs can enter your house from new furniture, clothing, or even on people or animals. A lot of people think that dirty houses make bed bugs come in, but that's not true. A dirty house might give them more hiding places, but bed bugs eat blood, not trash. Since they like to find hiding places, they are pretty hard to get rid of. To start with, all the sheets and laundry need to be cleaned, as well as any carpet or other fabrics in the house. An exterminator (bug killer) is going to be needed to completely get rid of the infestation.
