Check Your Laundry Hamper – Bed Bugs Love the Ripe Smell of Dirty Laundry


Bed bugs don’t always hang out on beds looking for people to bite. You can find these small pests in many other parts of your home. In fact, bed bugs are known to be drawn to piles of dirty laundry.

Bed Bugs and Laundry

When you’re checking your home for bed bugs, you might want to start with your hamper. Bed bugs could be lurking in your dirty laundry after being drawn to it. These pests seek out places where they think they’ll find humans to feed on and scents on your laundry tend to attract them. Keep in mind that you could have bed bugs hiding inside your suitcases while you travel if you put dirty laundry in them.
