  • Make them take their clothes off OUTSIDE. Bag them up tight in a trash bag for a week. Then wash in hot water.

  • Bed bugs will attatch to anything. The do not jump but can move at a reasonably quick speed. They can climb even smooth surfaces with ease. You say help as in the past. So their clothes and shoes and bodies came in and did you wash them immediately? They are very prolific. I can't tell you what to do except call an exterminator and ask if they have a preventative treatment.

  • You should try to remove them. There are so many pesticides to prevent beg bugs. For more information visit http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/bedbugs/
