BED BUGS INSTINCTS REGARDING THEIR MOVEMENTS.
Bed Bugs prefer not to move often, fast or on open flat surfaces. Even when exposed to light and touched by a human, their instincts tells them to stay still as if they do not exist. Some of the reasons they go on the move, include:
- Looking for a new nesting spot
- Excreting business has to take place
- Egg laying has to take place
- Looking for a mate
- Current nesting spots feels congested or unsafe
Bed Bugs instincts also drive them to stay in depressed spots in the bed. Also, areas such as cracks, gaps, slits and holes offer them safety features to use as a nesting spot.
