Where do you look for bed bugs when a tenant is sleeping on the floor, has no furniture, and the baseboards are sealed with silicone?

Bed bugs prefer to find a nice secluded crack or crevice in which to hide. The usual spots are mattresses, box springs, furniture, or baseboards. But what happens when all these spots are missing or sealed? You should start by looking in the blankets on the floor and the nearest door and window frames.   After that you can sometimes see bed bugs camped out in the corner of the room closest to the “pillow” in plain sight. Just look closely at the corners and you will probably find one.
