    Great new publication from the folks at Cornell IPM which goes into detail on how to get the bed bugs out of a whole host of items and areas etc.

    Just skimmed through it and not a fan. A lot of misinformation and suggestions that go against what the majority of us know is right. First thing I noticed is to isolate things in heavy duty bags for only six months... We know better than that. The second thing I read about is using a hair dryer or space heater to push bugs out of items or kill them. That's about as far as I read before I knew it wasn't worth my time. There are far better resources out there for people in search of such. I'm sure we all appreciate any resources that are given, but I'd suggest to others not to trust this article and look for better resources.

    I am not an expert, any advice I give should be considered as amateur advice and not taken as fact. I mean well with all my posts and try to give back. If you plan on using any of my advice, I suggest doing research into said advice to make sure it is in your best interest.
