So, how do these bugs get in your bed and everywhere else around your home? They don’t just appear one day! These bugs hitch hike or walk through the unusual places in search of a host— you and your family! Remember they are an insect that needs to feed to survive. It’s interesting how many people discover bed bugs in their home and say “I know where they came from”. In reality the introduction of a bed bug could have come from anywhere. They are hitchhikers, so you may have picked one up while you were out in public. They are often found in cars, buses, airplanes, restaurants, schools, doctors offices, hospitals, day care centers, your work, summer camps, and hotels. Maybe someone brought one to you when they visited. It’s hard to say.
We’ve visited homes of good folks like you who have made any of the following mistakes... and we don’t want you to make them, too!
- They throw out their bed, couch, or chairs.
- They rip up, remove, and replace their carpeting and padding.
- They replace all their clothing, and immediately put them into bedbug infested closets and dressers.
- They buy cheap insecticides which drive the bed bug deeper into their furnishings and building to avoid the chemicals.
- They try to rub everything down with alcohol. This creates a fire hazard.
- They put their clothes in the freezer.
- They run their clothes through the dryer for a regular dry cycle.
- They run their clothes through the dryer on high heat for several hours, but don’t treat anywhere else in their home. They then put these clothes back into their dressers and closets where the bed bugs already live.
- They think BED BUGS = INFESTED BED and don’t consider that bed bugs will harbor multiple places throughout their home.
- They do nothing.
