    I am terrified of bringing bedbugs to my friends and family. Should I cancel plans to go to their houses? I am okay doing so - I would be mortified to pass on the bugs. Or should I just get dressed in fresh-out-of-the-dryer clothes and immediately leave the house? What about my purse/bag...how can I sterilize that before leaving the house?

    ALSO I am afraid the bugs may have hitchhiked home with me from work (I work in group homes and they do get infestations). How can I sterilize my car...even if I wear sterilized clothing, if I get in my car and then go to someone's house, I can still bring them with me.

    Thanks all.

    Bedbugs aren't likely to set up camp in the car. Too many temperature variables. Look into taking precautions and conducting weekly inspections in your home. Early detection is everything.
