    Bed bugs feature in episode 8 of The Bold Type. Kat has bed bugs in her apartment so she goes to stay with Jane and Sutton. They have heard bed bugs spread easily, so they make her strip at the door (which opens to the street)-- she tosses her bag of clothing to a neighbor headed for the garbage can.

    However, the bed bug knowledge is limited here-- Kat only strips to her bra and underwear before going inside the apartment.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    I'm guessing we're talking about a TV show?

    Undergarments are in fact a technically low risk when it comes to bed bugs as unless its a very heavy (multi generational infestation heavily dispersed with foggers) only the outer garments are the risk factor.

    Although in my home given the high risk of tourists in the city on weekend we have a remove all items of clothing policy often followed by a thorough visual inspection :wink:. It's odd how some people no longer come over for dinner and others are always asking for an invite!

    Take care.

    Any/all 'advice' I have to share is based on my own personal history and/or things I've read from the professionals on this site.

    Also guess it's a TV show but to share an interesting fact. A recently published academic study showed that TV and Movie's do more for bringing complex issues to acceptance within society than the news does.

    I am just wondering what Hollywood heart throbs get to play Lou and me in the Movie (suggestions below:).

    Yeah, I quickly decided that leaving a bowl on the side for their keys and wallets was not setting the right tone either.

    My building is 50's not 70's and more "alternative modern" on the inside.

    Yes, on Hulu-- it's like a millennial Sex and the City.

    I am not in the target demographic but find it entertaining and surprisingly fresh and well-written.

    As long as your dinner invitations aren't 'come on over! We'll cook tea but puddings on you!' I'd say it's fine. ๐Ÿ˜‚
