    Am in love with a leather couch that I want to purchase tomorrow. Will occasionally be used for sleeping, and I live in a town and in a building where there have been infestations. Kind and friendly PCOs and other experts out there: is it completely stupid to purchase this? If it does end up infested, will it be possible to treat? Or does the vapor, for example, kill not only the bugs and eggs but the couch as well? Other furnishings in the room or blinds, a rug, a piano, a tv, lucite chairs, various pieces of wood furniture. Thanks in advance for advice.

    It may come as no surprise to many of the regulars that I am a leather fan and especially on sofas and seats. It may be that they tend to be better made and therefore easier to treat if you know what you are doing.

    Interestingly they tend to only get infected on the under side which is much easier to treat than pulling bedbugs out of a velour type material.
