Yesterday we visited one of my friends home and surprised and felt sorry about the problem they are having with bedbugs. They are not sure how they got infected with bed bugs in their home. I recommended them to call Killingsworth or Orkin. Do you guys have any other suggestions for them?

I saw on the news the other day that many hotels were infested with them and then they travel home with you. They recommended that when you get home to immediately wash all your clothes and leave the luggage out in the garage.

If you think you may have picked them up, then the key is to wash all of your clothes in HOT water, too. Also - before bringing your clothes into your home, they should be sealed in plastic bags. There are some pretty extreme steps that need to be taken once bed bugs get into your home - so anything that can be done to keep them out in the first place is worth the effort.

Moving vans, taxicabs, used furniture, clothing and appliances, movie theaters, motels and hotels.....all these present potential bedbug issues!! Some of the jobs that I've done have been attributed to visiting guests bringing them in!!

I wonder how many are reading what they think is written, or what is really written.
