Bed bugs are very easily spread from one apartment unit to the next. Make sure to cover your mattress and report signs of bed bugs to your property manager.
Infestations often start when infested used furniture is brought into the home. Always thoroughly inspect secondhand items for signs of bed bugs before buying.
If you want to stop a bed bug problem from spreading, avoid moving any infested furniture and take caution in transporting bedding to your laundry room.
Unfortunately, everyone is at risk of getting bed bugs! Those who have traveled, live in apartments or dorms, or have bought used furniture are more vulnerable.
