Bed bugs choose to hide in close proximity to where they feed, such as beds, but have been documented to travel 100-150 feet to acquire a meal of blood, so it is unlikely to reduce an infestation by leaving an area unoccupied.
Even though they don't have nests, bed bugs accumulate in places that can be designated by dark spotting and staining of dried waste. Eggs, shells, brownish skins of the bugs themselves will be found.
