Tip #1: Avoid shopping for used office furniture of unknown origins at furniture liquidation stores and furniture auctions.

Tip #2: When traveling on business and checking into a hotel, be sure to check mattresses, bedding and surrounding furniture for traces of bedbug excrement or drops of human blood.

Tip #3: Upon returning home from a business trip, avoid putting all suitcases and other clothing articles on any bedding, on carpet, or in the wardrobe until everything has been washed or dry-cleaned. Vacuum the luggage thoroughly to ensure no bedbugs are hiding within the luggage.
