Bed Bugs Travel Even If You Don’t

FAIRFAX, Va. (February 3, 2014) – The recent increase in reported cases of bed bugs may have consumers double checking sheets and couches when they travel, but a family vacation isn’t the only place to pick up these pests.

As a family in San Diego found out, bed bugs can come home with you from work. Within the past year, bed bugs have been found in many other locations, including schools, government buildings, and fire stations. When they are reported in these buildings, there is a strong chance that students and employees could bring them home unknowingly on their clothing or personal belongings.
