In the past, bed bug infestations were mostly limited to sites where people sleep: apartments, dorms, hotels, private homes and the like. Now, bed bug infestations are found in a variety of non-residential sites, including commercial workplaces. Unlike in residential settings, bed bugs in the workplace do not have sleeping and resting areas to infest; instead they wander and spread around the office before anyone is aware of them, making early detection difficult. In homes, bed bugs are typically most active at night. In offices, bed bugs are active at night at first, but since they cannot find food sources (i.e. human blood) they often shift their activity to daylight hours. In offices, bed bug numbers tend to be low, increasing by periodic reintroductions rather than through reproduction. The following precautions can be taken to help protect against transporting bed bugs home from the workplace and to keep the workplace bed bug free.
