Bed Bug Information
By Mark M Lichterman
Do not purchase clothes and hang them in your closet first. It does not matter what the price range is of the clothing, or if the outfit comes from the most expensive store known in the U.S.
A bit of information that you might like to know about bed bugs along with some good entomologist (insect expert) information.
As you have heard there is an epidemic of bed bugs occuring in America . Recently several stores in NYC have had to close due to bed bug problems, as well as a complete mall in New Jersey .
Since much of our clothing, sheets, towels, etc. now comes from companies outside of America, (sad but true), even the most expensive stores sell foreign clothing from China, Indonesia, etc. The bed bugs are coming in on the clothing as these countries do not consider them a problem. He recommends that if you buy any new clothing, even underwear and socks, sheets, towels, etc. that you bring them into the house and put them in your clothes dryer for at least 20 minutes. The heat will kill them and their eggs. Do not purchase clothes and hang them in your closet first. It does not matter what the price range is of the clothing, or if the outfit comes from the most expensive store known in the U.S.
They still get shipments from these countries and the bugs can come in a box of scarves or anything else for that matter. That is the reason why so many stores, many of them clothing stores have had to shut it down in NYC and other places. All you need is to bring one item into the house that has bugs or eggs and you will go to hell and back trying to get rid of them.
