Are bed bugs a sign that someone is “dirty”?

It’s important to remember that bed bugs do not indicate an unsanitary living situation.  The cleanest homes can have huge bed bug issues if the proper treatment techniques aren’t used quickly.  Furthermore, improving sanitation alone will not get rid of the bugs.  Cluttered environments can offer bed bugs more places to hide, making treatments more difficult and make it seem as though the infestation is worse than it really is.  But, again, reducing clutter won’t make the bed bugs go away; it will simply make your treatment efforts a bit easier. Everyone is at risk of having a bed bug problem.
