If you live in an apartment or a New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) building, report bed bugs to your landlord or management company. If you get no response, you can call 311 to make a bed bug complaint. If you are a private homeowner, hire a licensed pest management professional to find, trap, and kill bed bugs. You can also:
- Clean and disinfect surfaces and furnishings
- Consider encasements for mattresses and box springs
- Dry bedding and clothes on the hottest setting
