Most likely these pests were carried in luggage or on a person that visited your bedroom or living room. That is to say that the person or the article’s last departure point was the likely source of bed bug infestation.
The likely source would be an infested bedroom of a family or friend or a point where many people come and go like a hotel or a roaming house. At times you may not be able to track back to a plausible source.
In essence somehow, now, they are in your bedroom. And very sneakily they feed upon you in the night. These pests are parasites and need a host to live off.
And since Bed Bugs do not feel the need to feed for up to two weeks at a time, their presence may appear less obvious in initial phase of the infestation.
Unlike house flies or fruit flies these pests are not a product of poor sanitation. That is, the fact, that you have discovered a Bed Bugs problem in it’s infancy, does not reflect on the cleanliness of your residence. However, to make a place more tidy and clean would suppress Bed Bug infestation. And a poorly kept kept bedroom would make these pests feel really at home.
