Many types of bugs can bore into wood and make it home, from termites and carpenter ants, to more unique varieties such as beetle bugs, powder post beetles or even bed bugs. While the easiest method of keeping them out of the home is to avoid bringing in infested wood, at times the insects are in the wood before it is made into furniture, and then bore themselves out.
Because these bugs live in groups and will look for small crevices to hide in, make sure you inspect mattresses, bed frames, headboards and box springs for their presence. They tend to prefer wood or fabric and are not often found on plastic or metal surfaces.
Bed bugs do not have nests like ants or bees, but do tend to congregate in habitual hiding places. Characteristically, these areas are marked by dark spotting and staining, which is the dried excrement of the bugs.
Nothing is worse than bed bugs, right? Those pesky little creatures can make you seriously uncomfortable and cost you tons of money replacing furniture. But you can treat your furniture without spending money or having to throw it out. You will need to inspect everything thoroughly and make sure to to follow every step properly.
So, if bed bugs live in wood (wood framed bed) then getting a metal bed would be way worth the while in order to try to get rid of the problem. I would like an answer to my question and some feedback if you don't mind. ANSWER: Bed bugs do not have a preference for wood or metal. They hide in narrow harborages close to where the potential host sleeps.
