Tips to prevent bringing bed bugs home from school!


  • Make a habit of inspecting your child’s backpack and jacket every day when they return home.
  • Also have them remove their school clothes and if possible wash them in hot water right away.
  • Teach your child, if old enough, to be on the lookout for any signs of bed bugs.
  • Talk to the school administrators and ask them if they have a bed bug detection and elimination plan in place.
  • Also make sure your children share with you if they know of any friends who report bed bug infestations in their home.
  • If a bed bug infestation is found, work with a professional pest control company to treat the infestation and perform follow-up inspections.
