  2. No sleepovers! You shouldn’t state your friend’s house or have your friend state your house until they bedbugs situation has been dealt with.
  3. Laundry! Any clothing or bed linens in the home that may have come into contact with your friend or friends home should be washed and dried on high heat.
  4. Protect your bed with a bed bug proof mattress encasements. This will minimize the amount of places that bedbugs can harbour in your residence. We also recommend boxspring encasements and pillow encasements.
