Moving with Bed Bugs

So your fed up and decided to move out and away from your bed bug infested apartment, dorm room or home. The question is how do you move and not bring the bed bugs with you? The ones hiding in your clock radio or your clothing or your book bag and furniture. All you are doing is moving the bed bugs into a new home. Unless...

What we need is a large scale moving system where moving trucks are fitted with commercial heaters and insulated to hold heat in. The process would be simple. Move out, load the truck up, and then put the heaters on for about 5 hours. Move into your new home with a bunch of baked, and yes dead, bedbug. There would need to be consideration given to how much stuff you have and how packed the truck is that would contribute to bake times, but it is worth a second thought.

Another way is to tent that truck and fumigate the items. It would cost you about five hundred dollars, give or take, and should kill off any hitch hiking buggers. The drawback is you need to fume for 24 hours and vent. This contributes to a longer moving process.

Any one else with some thoughts?

As time consuming as it might be I would recommend starting with an old fashioned inspection. It doesn't make sense to pay for furniture that isn't infested to be treated. While it may take some time to inspect every piece, it could end up saving you thousands of dollars of treatment costs.

As reading intense as it power be I would suggest play with an old fashioned scrutiny. It doesn't modify sagacity to pay for furniture that isn't overrun to be dressed.

OMG this is horrible, and things just seem like they keep getting worse. I was at war with bedbugs for what seemed like forever. The biggest problem I had was trying to find a non-toxic and professional solution.

It's essential to exterminate bed bugs if you want to sleep comfortably. I suggest looking for a bed bug exterminator who knows where the bugs are located and what method will work best in killing them.

An inspection by a pest controller should always be carried out, I believe, being in the pest control industry that alot of people try to deal with the issue themselves first instead f calling someone in, therefore it gets worse and they do end up needing to replace furniture in the end.

I have come across many people that have been infested with bedbugs and have still let people come and go without notifying them which i disagree with personally.
