I have a friend in England who's just fumigated her flat

Customer Question

I have a friend in England who's just fumigated her flat with a bad case of bedbugs. She wants to come visit me in the US for a week-I'm afraid she'll bring some bedbugs with her. She's boiled her sheets and clothes, etc- how can I make absolutely sure she doesn't contaminate my house when she comes?

There is no way to be 100% sure unfortunately.

Does she have any symptoms?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Not currently- she feels the bugs are all dead after the fumigation and they've stopped biting. I'm concerned that they may transport in her luggage, though that was fumigated as well?

If it was fumigated you should be fine
