I'm not traveling as much as I used to, so I'm not so worried about bringing little critters back. But I wondered today: What eats bedbugs? Choices like freezing my luggage for a week or abandoning the house for a couple of months or loading up on superbug-bombs don't enchant me. Could we bring in a predator to take care of the critters.

Cockroaches, among other things, eat bedbugs. Or centipedes. Some spiders.

Feeling itchy?

The easiest way to kill bedbugs is with heat: they die at 113 degrees F. So, just take all of your washable clothes straight to the washer when you get home (don't even set them down inside-- go straight to the washer). Anything dryclean only, or already clean, put it in the dryer for at least 30 mins on hot or 90 mins on medium. That's it.
