Lorraine from Fall River, Ma. writes,

Is it advisable to move furniture (for decorating purposes) after bed bug problem has lessened and/or ended?

I live in a studio apartment. In preparing to treat a mild infestation, I moved my bed away from the wall. I'd like to re-position it and some other pieces for convenience and space considerations, but I'm afraid I may uproot anything that has not died from treatment. I've used Bedlam, Steri-Fab and DE.

Answer:

If you have any remaining bedbugs in your home you want them to get moving so they will get into the insecticides that you have applied and be eliminated before they start reproducing. Moving your furniture should not negatively effect your bedbug treatment unless you are moving infested furniture into un-infested rooms. Please find our article How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs.
