Blind people and bed bug harbourage choice.

After treating a few thousand suites I have a pretty good idea of what to expect and where the bugs will be located. On one occasion I had the opportunity to treat a blind person’s suite. There were certainly some bed bug presentation commonalities to other suites but this suite also had a fair number of large body pillows on the bed. Interestingly these pillows were thoroughly infested with the harbourages in plain sight – that was a bit odd because the bugs usually are much more discreet in their harbourage choices.

I observed that there were no light bulbs in this room and the windows were blacked out. The room was perpetually dark (I had to open the windows for lighting). I hypothesized that the bugs did not move to more secluded locations because they were happy enough on top of the bed as long as the room was always dark.
