    Hi! Just discovered a bunch of bedbugs hiding in the bedframe, where the screws are attached to the bed rails. Is it possible they came with a bed? I wish I know how to post photos. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    It's a one year old bed frame. How did this happen?

    There are many ways bed bugs can be introduced into a home.

    Do you have attached neighbours? Traveled recently? Bought or received second-hand furniture?

    Can landlord do something about it? I do travel once a month, I live in Astoria, and had last year a few Airbnb guests.

    Astoria Hungary or Oregon?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.

    Now I aint no expert but by the looks of it those have been there a while.. 3 things come to mind. You already had a light infestation before you bought the new bed frame. The neighbors have a really bad bed bug problem and they’ve recently started making their way to your apartment. Or the place you bought the bed frame from already had a few bugs on it from it being returned to the store. I would look into the store policy on returns. Someone could have set it up and brought it back for some reason and they had a problem. Best to get it treated right away and make sure your landlord hires a good reputable company that uses more than 1 menthod to treat (spray+dust) and doesn’t just come in with an aerosol can and randomly spray the bed.

    With that start your prep work. Wash clothes and bedding on hot amd dry for 1 hour then seal them up in bags. Vacuum (empty in a bag, tie it up and throw it in the outside trash) and declutter. Whichever company your landlord goes with, ask them for a prep sheet and follow it.

    Also suggest that your attached neighbors be inspected incase the problem came from them.

    I'm not an expert. Just sharing what I learned from my experience.
