Restructuring the Bedbugger FAQs about bed bugs

Good news.

If you’ve looked at the FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) page recently, you probably had to strain your eyes to find what you were looking for. It was a bit of a mess. I am proud to say we now have way too many FAQs for one page, and have for some time.

So I have finally gotten around to creating seven sub-pages. The main FAQs page is still at and it looks exactly like this:

Bed Bugs 101: the following two FAQs should be read by everyone:

Think you have bed bugs? Some do’s and don’ts

What do bed bugs look like? How do I know I have them? What else could be causing similar symptoms?

The remainder of our FAQs are grouped by topic as follows:

pest control, treatment, pesticides, natural remedies, etc.

who pays for bed bug treatment, and other legal issues

getting bed bugs out of your bed (and keeping them out)

eliminating bed bugs from clothes, shoes, and other stuff

bed bugs, skin, and bites

travel: how to avoid getting bed bugs or giving them to others

questions about and how to use it

The same issues come up with so many of us that I really believe most people should read most of the FAQs (saving some of the more esoteric ones like, “Is there an insect that will eat bed bugs?”)

I also want to note that I only cross-posted two of the FAQs–all the rest are only under one category. If you take part in the forums and send people to the FAQs (thank you!), you might want to familiarise yourself with how they are grouped.

But I do hope that the new structure helps people find what they’re looking for more quickly–and that it helps us send them there more quickly.

Please comment below if you have any feedback or suggestions (since commenting on this on the FAQs pages will get kind of messy).
