HealthDay News

(HealthDay News) -- Bedbugs are crafty little critters that can sneak into your luggage while you're traveling, then make themselves comfortable in your home.

The University of Minnesota Extension suggests:

  • Packing anything that could harbor bedbugs in a sealed plastic bag.
  • Separating laundry according to color, so you can put dirty laundry directly into the washing machine.
  • Laundering all clothing in the hottest setting possible.
  • Inspecting your luggage for bedbugs. If you see them, wash luggage with a scrub brush and hot, soapy water.
  • Heating infested items to 120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two hours. Or freezing infested items to 23 degrees Fahrenheit for at least five days.
