Be Careful What You Bring Into Your Home

Friday, August 30, 2013

The source of some bed bug infestations is a mystery, but for some homeowners it can be directly linked to a piece of furniture that was not properly inspected before being brought into the home.

An Indiana woman recently had this unfortunate experience with a rental couch. One month after bringing it home and after family members started experiencing strange bite marks, the couch was found to have bed bugs.

Eradication of bed bugs can be expensive. Inspection and sanitation of new or previously used furniture is the best way to avoid bringing them into the home.
