Bed bugs are also known to hide in cardboard, so try to unpack your boxes quickly after moving house, and never use cardboard boxes for storage. Stick to plastic containers, instead.
Sharing isn’t always caring
If you share laundry facilities with others, such as in student accommodation, take extra caution.
When you transport your items to be washed, keep them in a plastic bag and once they are washed, remove them from the dryer and place them straight back in the bag.
Fold them at home where it’s safer to do so.
Inspect your second-hand furniture
If you purchase second-hand furniture, make sure to inspect the item for bed bug infections first, before taking it home, especially if you are buying a bed frame or mattress.
