Lou Sorkin took this photo in a seriously infested home.

He describes it:

“Bed bug harborage site in recessed screw hole on side of textured, molded plastic desk chair. Opposite side of chair had no bed bugs in the screw hole.”

This is a helpful reminder to people that bed bugs will live in all kinds of furniture, not just wood or bed frames.  And also, importantly, to check an entire item–only one side of the chair harbored bed bugs.

Thanks, Lou!
