Bedbugs in your cable box?
Is it possible to get bedbugs from a cable box? The short answer is yes. Think about it, if you have a cable box that is in a heavily infested home and they decide to cancel cable, they drop the box back off at the cable company. The cable company doesn't throw them away, they recycle them. We all know how hardy bed bugs are and even if they sit for months in that cable box on a shelf at the cable company and then brought into your home the next time you order cable, you now have bedbugs. Be sure to always check anything new that is brought into your house, new or used, from an outside source. The item may not have had bedbugs, but the truck it was delivered on may and now you do. See the trend. Be vigilant.
