bed bugs

Bed bugs have become a serious problem in the U.S. and many pest control operators are becoming overwhelmed by huge infestations especially in apartments where bed bugs spread to several rooms. Landlords have trouble paying to treat all apartments when infestations become high. Congress has passed new bed bug legislation trying to help people pay for the enormous costs. People can help themselves prevent infestations of their own homes by being aware when traveling. Make sure not to set luggage and bags on the floors or near beds. Ask questions at the hotel to make sure they do not have an infestation; they may or may not tell you. Wash and dry clothing on high heat when returning home to kill any eggs that may have hitched a ride on the way. Being a clean person does not assure any bed bugs will not infest your home
