THINGS YOU CAN DO TO HELP PROTECT YOURSELF FROM BED BUGS
EDUCATE YOURSELF. Bed Bugs are non-discriminating and have been found worldwide regardless of income level, ethnicity, gender, cleanliness, etc. All bed bugs are interested in is a blood meal.
PROTECT YOURSELF WHEN YOU TRAVEL. As soon as you arrive at your destination inspect the mattress, box spring, and headboard. Look for live bed bugs, droppings, cast skins, and or staining on the bed linens. When you return from a trip, place your luggage in a sealed plastic bag. Wash all your clothing regardless of whether or not they have been worn (laundry must be washed in hot water and dried on high temperature or dry cleaning will also work).
BE PROACTIVE WITH YOUR PURCHASES. When you buy any new clothing, even underwear and socks, sheets, and towels immediately put them in your clothes dryer for at least 20 minutes. The heat will kill bed bugs and their eggs. If you buy clothing from a thrift shop, a yard sale or online, make sure it is washed in hot water and dry before you bring it into your home.
KEEP YOUR BELONGINGS CLOSE. When using mass transit do not put your belongings on the seat next to you. This makes it very easy for a bed bug to climb on and then be relocated to our place of work or your home.
BE CAUTIOUS. Locker rooms, coat closets, and any other locations where your belongings are in close proximity to those of many other people.
