Indy6 news is late to the bed bug party of last week. Yesterday it told readers of its website (and presumably a television audience as well):
People whose mattresses have bedbugs can vacuum aggressively in tight spots, which is where the insects like to hide. People also can call an exterminator.
Well you can vacuum aggressively. But you must call the PCO. And I’d do that first, since if you vacuum first, you may wipe out visible signs of bugs, and make it harder for the PCO to diagnose and treat them. Seriously.
And you may also think you “got” them all, when you didn’t. Because they like to hide other places besides your mattress. Journalists! Do your research!
