Was exposed on vacation, what now?(3 posts)
Ugh...I just returned from a trip where I was eaten up badly by bed bugs. Didn't realize that it was bed bugs until the way home when I was on my phone doing research. I followed the following steps.
Took our clothes off and put into a garbage bag then straight to the washer on hot.
All luggage stayed out in the garage.
Yesterday and right now today, I have all our clothing from the suitcases in black garbage bags in the sun.
We are in Philly where we are having 100 degree weather.
None washable items are in ziploc bags in the car that is parked in the sun.
The suitcases are opened in the driveway in the sun.
BTW, no signs of any bugs in anything we have gone through.
I did these steps because I knew we were exposed.
Here are my concerns...
We traveled in our car 2 hours from the airport, could they have gotten in the car from us?
My son came in and slept on the couch when we got home in his clothes from our trip.
My other son brought in his backpack and layed on the couch.
Also the boys didn't throw their clothes into the garbage bag I set out first, they threw them on the carpeted floor in their bedroom.
What else should I do at this point?
All advise is welcome and very much appreciated!
