When you hear about a bed bug infestation, chances are you don’t give it much thought but when it’s a family member with the issue, that’s another story.
Bed bugs are opportunists and catch a ride on many things including clothing and purses. Since there’s a good possibility your family member has been in your home, it’s highly probable bed bugs visited your home, too.
If you find yourself in a situation where folks from an infested home have been in yours, there are a few things to consider.
Tips When Bed Bugs are on the Scene
One of the first things to do is talk with your family member and find out to what extent their home is infested. The more you know, the better you can prepare.
Don’t assume because your home is clean bed bugs won’t set up housekeeping. Only dirty homes get infested with bed bugs is a myth.
Until your family has taken care of the infestation in their home, it’s a good idea to limit visitations to your home.
It’s also suggested your home be inspected by a NYC bed bug control professional.
