It is terrible when bed bugs get into an apartment building because they can travel from unit to unit within the structure. The bed bugs will not spread naturally from unit to unit unless the effected unit becomes vacant. When a bed bug infested unit becomes vacant, the bed bugs have no choice but to try their best to get their next blood meal. Often they will travel through or around wall outlets, air ducting, or plumbing. If the tenants in the infected unit spray over the counter pesticides, then the bed bugs will run away from the products and can easily make it into adjacent units.
