Just purchased some vintage books from Etsy, how do I prevent BED Bugs?

Recommended Posts

Put them in plastic bags and freeze them for 2 weeks. We just got back from Spain this summer bringing bedbugs home. We had to get a pest control company to treat and it worked great! We really only suffered for a week or so because we caught things before the infestation took off. But he said to wash everything that could be washed and to freeze things like books. You could look through the books first to check for bugs. Keep them outside and do a thorough inspection. But if you are really worried freezing them for long enough to kill the eggs is supposed to work.
