Bed Bugs vs. Wicker

A wicker bed frame suspected to harbour bed bugs
Ever since I found my first bed bug I knew that one day I would run into a wicker bed set.  Bed Bugs harbour in small dark crevices in head boards and side tables.  In this case my first thought was that the wicker bed frame would provide the perfect hiding spots for bed bugs, and soon I'd prove my suspicions right.  I found spotting (blood) all over the top edge of the wicker frame.

If you look closely about 3/4 of the way down the picture to the left you will find a reddish brown spot on the metal frame where the wicker was cut away, this is a bed bug.  I found 10 bed bugs hiding in the wicker and several egg locations.  I gave the customer the choice to either discard the frame or strip all of the wicker off of it.

A careful inspection was done on the rest of the unit, the treatment was performed, and "climb-Ups" were installed on the legs of the frame to prevent and detect any travellers.
