Top entomologists agreed that education about what a bed bug is, how to spot it and how to avoid bringing it into the home are the most critical tools in prevention.
Avoid bringing bed bugs home by being very careful of what you carry into your house.
If you use diligence while traveling, you’ll be significantly more likely to avoid an infestation.
Know what bed bugs look like and the most common ways that they get from one location to another so you can avoid bringing them into your home in the first place.
People need to be vigilant about asking questions and finding reputable information about services and products.
The general public has become more informed about the risk of bed bugs in public, but there is still too much misinformation and too many unreliable products in the marketplace, so consumers need to do their research.
In addition, there are reliable products that are designed to help detect infestations early, like interception devices and encasements, which add peace of mind.
Even before an infestation occurs, people can protect themselves by using entry, escape, and bite-proof mattress and box spring encasements. The key is early detection, which help people see the signs of an infestation early while keeping the bugs from spreading to other areas of the home.
