How do bed bugs move from room to room?

Do I really have to worry about treating my couches out in my living room, if the only place I'm getting bites from is my bed? Do the bugs attach to the clothes I'm wearing and transfer that way? Do I have to worry about bringing them into someone elses house on my clothing?


The reason bed bug populations have exploded all over the country is their ability to move easily on people and in their belongings.  Bed Bugs in New York have been found in cabs, movie theatres, clothing stores, etc.  They can easily attach to clothing or belongings and be transported without detection sometimes.  It is very important to be very thorough and treat any places or surfaces that you congregate or site for a period of time, including the couch.
