Warren Writes,
06/10/2010:

I have a bed bug infestation in the sofa at my apartment. Do I need to throw the sofa out and buy a new one?

before I spray the apartment. What would you recommend as the most effective way to rid my apartment of these pest?

Answer:

If you are going to dispose of your sofa you should do so before the treatment. You should also wrap your sofa in plastic before moving it to avoid having bedbugs drop off and infest other areas and you should destroy the sofa in some way so that others will not pick up the contaminated furniture from the curbside. We recommend that you check out our bedbug kits as they come with all of the different products you need to treat for bedbugs effectively. Be thorough when performing the treatments!
