How to Spare Your Laundry!
ü Wash & Dry all clothing, bed sheets, blankets and pillowcases on HOT settings.
ü Dry on high for at least 30 minutes. This is more important than washing to kill bed bugs.
ü Place shoes, pillows, curtains, jackets, small rugs & mats, and non-electronic plush toys
in the dryer on high for at least 30 minutes.
ü Avoid over-stuffing the dryer so the heat can reach all items freely.

ARE BEDBUGS BITING??
Bed Bugs are elusive, transient and nocturnal, they are often found in other areas besides the bed. They are hardy. They can live for a year or more without eating and can withstand a wide range of temperatures from nearly freezing to almost 113 degrees. Once inside, they can spread rapidly from room to room, through pipes, in vacuum cleaners, on clothing and luggage. They can hide behind baseboards, electrical switch plates, picture frames, even wallpaper. They can be in chair cushions, sofas and any crack or crevice.
Tend to be red or brown in color. They are flat wingless insects. They are likely to be found in the seams and folds of mattresses and bed covers. The females lay about 200 eggs usually at the rate of 3-4 times a day. They feed mainly on human blood and do so mostly at night, but if need be will also do so in the day if the light is dim. Their presence is indicated by stained blood smears on walls, sheets, pillows and light colored surfaces.

Bed Bug Mattress Covers
are designed to protect from bedbug infestations. They should be on all mattresses, box springs, pull-out beds, and pillows. A properly certified bed bug cover should effectively prevent bed bugs of any size from either entering or escaping any installed bed bug cover.
Residential homes and vacation rentals alike can both benefit from having these covers. All standard bed sizes can be found online or at most local Mattress stores.
Always make sure when purchasing a BedBug proof mattress, boxspring & pillow cover that it is top-of-the-line, certified 100% bed bug bite proof and escape proof material. Just buying a mattress cover will not be effective.
