Workers involved in housekeeping, facilities maintenance, medical and social work will be at

risk for picking up bed bugs from an infested room or home or their contents. However, there

are steps that can be taken to reduce these risks and workers must be prepared to follow these

steps to protect themselves.

Follow these recommendations to reduce the risk:

• Know or ask ahead of time whether the room or space has bed bugs.

• Do not bring bags or personal belongings inside the room, carry as little as possible

with you.

• For cleaning and maintenance crews, wear a Tyvek brand suit or similar protective

coveralls that will prevent bed bugs from hitching a ride on the clothes or shoes.

Discard the coveralls by changing immediately and by sealing the suit in plastic bag.

• Dissolving plastic bags are available that allow the user to isolate infested clothing

until it can be placed in the wash. These bags dissolve in the laundry.

• For social and medical service providers, bring a portable stool to sit on and remain in

the middle of the room. If this is not possible, be sure to sit on a hard chair, not on

plush furniture or beds.

• Carefully shake out your clothes while standing outside before returning to your car

or office.

• Bring a change of clothes and shoes for working in the field, change clothes at work

and keep the field clothes and shoes in a sealed bag for laundering.

• Be vigilant about what to look for. Bed bugs are visible, but the youngest ones are

very small. Inspect your own living and work space on a regular basis.

• There are currently no insect repellents that are labeled for bed bugs.
