Infestations often start when infested used furniture is brought into the home. Always thoroughly inspect secondhand items for signs of bed bugs before buying.
If you have bed bugs and want to keep them from spreading, avoid moving any infested furniture and take caution in transporting bedding to your laundry room.
Anyone everyone is at risk of getting bed bugs! Those who have traveled, live in apartments or dorms, or have bought used furniture are more vulnerable.
