You Found One Bed Bug — Now What? Although the mere sight of a bed bug traversing across a mattress or climbing on a bed frame can send people into a tizzy, PMPs need to communicate to customers that a small number of bed bugs in an account does not always mean a large infestation is present.

Put bed bug mattress covers and raped the zippers. Washed all my linens in hot water. Put all pillows and quilts in dryer. Then made bed. Washed and dried all clothing in my room, bagged and sealed and did not bring back to bedroom. Pest guy came and sprayed, then dusted diatomaceous earth. He only found one live bug on my couch.

I'm in the same boat.a few months ago we found one adult female (ugh) and no other signs. The find was shortly after hosting a visitor who came from a bad bedbug city, who took a bus from that city packed with people's luggage.

Finding even a single bed bug is sufficient cause for alarm. It is possible for a lone bug to hitchhike its way into your home or hide itself on your person. Unfortunately, the presence of one suggests there are more. As a single fertile female may lay four to five eggs every day for up to nine months, your home may quickly become infested.

In the United States, bedbugs are reported in all 50 states, and an estimated one in five Americans either has had a bedbug infestation in their home or knows someone who has. Today, infestations are found in offices and retail environments, in health and transportation buildings, and even in movie houses: basically, anywhere people sleep or sit.

Launder items regularly Heat is deadly to bed bug. All stages of bed bugs including the eggs can be killed by exposing them to temperatures in excess of 120oF for at least twenty minutes. Hot laundering can be a highly effective method for dealing with any item that can be safely placed in a clothes dryer on high heat.
