There is this notion that bedbugs are found in beds and only feed at night. While they do prefer beds since this is where they can find their host, they can be found in many places. In your house you may not consider finding them behind picture frames, in outlets, smoke detectors or even light bulbs. Another place they like to hide is in purses or brief cases which are generally left on the floor or near furniture. This then allows them to travel and spread in other areas of the house or new locations.
