CAN I GET BED BUGS FROM MY RIDE SHARE?

If you use ridesharing programs you may run the risk of entering a vehicle that has carried a passenger with a bedbug problem.

This doesn’t suggest that the next person to get into the car after someone with bed bugs just left is bound to get bed bugs. The last person could have sat on it, it could have gone to hide in the seats, or it could have not left their belongings all together. Even if one or two bed bugs make into the vehicle, it must be a recently fed female in order to start laying eggs and start an infestation.

So if you’re worried about bedbugs in rideshare vehicles, there isn’t much you can do to prevent the bugs from transferring on to your clothes or other items. However, if you think you may have taken an infested rideshare vehicle, you can put your clothes in the dryer on high heat and contact ECO Bed Bug Washington DC at 202.709.7490 for an inspection.
