Getting ready for a home visit to see mom and dad? Be careful not to bring bed bugs home with you. I would suggest changing your packing regiment. Instead of packing an overnight bag, get a few large trash bags ready. Now go to the laundry area and launder all the clothing you are planning on taking home and dry them on the highest heat setting. Don't forget to do the same with your sneakers and winter coat. After they are dry, put the cloths into the trash bag and then into your trunk. Leave right from the laundry mat with your freshly cleaned cloths. This will kill any potential hitch hiking bed bugs that might have gotten into your sneakers or cloths pockets and will eliminate the possibility of bringing them home to mom and dad.
