Keep the rack away from walls or furniture so bed bugs cannot climb up the wall and onto the luggage. When returning home, wash the clothes from your trip and put them in a hot dryer. Before bringing new or used furniture into the home be sure to inspect them thoroughly. Look in seams, tufts and under cushions of furniture. Wash and dry any used clothing such as those found at thrift stores.

Many people when discovering they have bed bugs try a variety of different treatment methods to get rid of their bed bug infestation. Unfortunately, these methods do not work on bed bugs. Diatomaceous Earth, natural oils, and or dryer sheets will not kill bed bugs in most cases. Many of the over-the-counter chemicals, foggers, or “bug bombs” listed to kill bed bugs will have no effect on them unless coming in direct contact with them and in heavy or dangerous doses. Finally, alcohol will not kill bed bugs either. So much alcohol must be used that the bed bugs are essentially being drowned and in this case the alcohol can pose as a serious fire hazard.
