Do I need to throw my furniture away if I get bed bugs in Georgia ?
Even if they are heavily infested it is not necessary to discard. However if you do discard the furniture please mark it or destroy it so they will not spread from someone picking it up.
Box Springs and Mattresses should be covered with encasements if you are using chemical methods and steamers. If you are having a Heat Treatment the heat will eliminate all stages of Bed Bugs.
You can also use monitoring devices to determine if there is current activity.
These are placed under the bedposts and work relatively well.
