Everyone is traveling and when you travel, you often have to stay in hotels. This creates serious problems in the spread of bed bugs worldwide as there are bed bugs in hotels. When just one hotel becomes infested with bed bugs, everyone who stays at that hotel is at risk of taking bed bugs away with them.

Moochers Beware – Don’t Take Used Furniture

By Mark | Bed Bug Prevention

It’s often tempting to pick up used furniture that we see on the side of a street. It can save us a lot of money to get furniture for free when even a really cheap bed can cost $100. And many people when they move can’t take some of their furniture (because it doesn’t fit in their new place or because they’re upgrading to newer and better furniture).

That’s why it often seems like a great deal to just pick up that used furniture nobody wants.
