My neighbor has bedbugs...Now what?

If you live in a row home or an apartment and your neighbor has bedbugs then you might as well start preparing to get them yourself. One thing you can do to put the odds in your favor is to hire a pest control company to come out and drill holes in between each stud and inject a good pesticide dust into the wall voids. This should be done upstairs and downstairs. If you have wall to wall carpets then it would be a good idea to also pull the carpets away from the wall and and dust between the tack strip and the wall itself. I would recommend putting a mattress and box spring cover on the mattress and box spring just in case, this will save your bed in the event of an infestation. If you have a good relationship with your neighbors it is a good idea to unite and work together to solve the problem, if not, expect a long battle that you may lose.
