    Hi!

    I wanted to get some advice on whether or not I should travel with a friend who has bed begs. I have heard from other sources that the infestation is pretty bad. Is it unsafe to travel for a weekend with them?

    There are FAQs on how to avoid spreading bed bugs if you have them, and how to avoid bringing them home if exposed here: http://bedbugger.com/how-to-get-rid-of-bed-bugs-bed-bug-faqs/travel/

    Your best bet is to get them to take the relevant precautions which apply to them, and for you to take those which apply to your situation. If they won't do anything, you MAY still protect yourself from bringing them home, but it's tricky.

    You wouldn't want them in your car, if that's part of the plan, if they are not taking careful precautions.

    They may not be carrying bed bugs on them or their luggage, but it really depends how bad the problem is and where it is as well as how they try to prevent spreading it.

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

    Are they in denial about the infestation or mid-treatment?
