Taking an extra look around the room while travelling this summer may be a good idea, because bed bugs can linger in more than just your mattress.

"Mattresses are most commonly where people see bed bugs, but they can be anywhere" said Tazewell County Health Department's Sara Sparkman. "They can be in picture frames, they can be in curtains...they like to hide in cracks and crevices of anything."

American Pest Control's Steve Howell said he's seen around a 10% increase in cases each year.

Howell emphasized bites from the bug are indistiguishable from other bug bites, and a professional assessment is the best way to determine an infestation.

Make sure to inspect any furniture you buy second hand, and the beds of hotel rooms.

Some warning signs are small bites on the body, and specks similar to black pepper on your furniture.

The insects are small and flat, vary in color, and are about half the size of a penny or smaller.

American Pest Control and Tazewell Health Deparmtent both advise to call in the professionals if you suspect they're in your home.
