    I haven't posted in a while.. Still haven't seen anything definitive and I'm wondering if it is safe to put up my Christmas tree/decorations? I really want to have a "normal" Christmas with my son and I feel bad for being unsure if it is safe to decorate during this "scare". All of my decorations are in my bedroom closet.

    I don't know if there are any insecticidal dusts that are repellent and can be applied to the mattress or frame. Depending on application, you could be applying too much and that wouldn't be healthy.

    Hi FO101

    I am not an expert and I am not familiar with your situation, however...
    You can avoid Christmas and still have bedbugs (or not) or you can enjoy Christmas and still have bedbugs (or not)! Could you carefully and slowly unpack your tree/ornements outside on a white sheet to see if anything comes out of it before bringing it Inside one by one after close inspection ?
