Bed bugs don’t play favorites. They’ll hitch a ride whenever and wherever there’s an opportunity. This means the tiny pests can be just about anywhere you find humans and that includes the workplace.
All Work and No Play
When you’re at work, you have no control over other people’s travels. People without bed bugs can inadvertently bring them home via a yard sale purchase such as a piece of used furniture.
Several steps you can take while at work can give you a heads up on outsmarting these pests. If you have a place where everyone hangs their jackets, keep yours stowed separately. This may involve placing your sweater, coat, jacket, even scarves in a plastic bag. Better safe than sorry is a good way to look at this situation.
Keep your work area free of clutter and keep your eyes peeled in areas where your coworkers gather such as the breakroom or employee lounges. Pay attention to furniture where bed bugs can hide especially in crevices on sofas and chairs.
