How can we avoid bed bugs when using a mover?
Bed bugs are becoming more and more heard of.
It is better to use new materials when packing your shipment. Using used materials or blankets to wrap your furniture, may be a source of bed bugs simply because blankets are used over and over again for many clients. You never know where they have been. The same goes for used boxes.
When moving from the US to Canada from Canada to USA, most removal companies use blankets to wrap furniture. When relocation overseas, it is less common that an international moving company would use blankets. However, some may still use used boxes. Please pay special attention to this matter.
Bed bugs were heard of in India. I remember them when there were many houses with tiled roofs. A spray powder called ” TIK 20 ‘ were sprayed at homes . mostly in cane furniture and mattresses to contain them. Nowadays they are unheard of with tiled roof houses given way to concrete houses and Pest control treatments being the order of the day. all shipments from India to the West and rest of Asia are fumigated at an additional cost to the customer.
