Garage sales are a great way to recycle, and to enable individuals and families to buy clothing, furniture, household items and other things they need at reasonable prices.

Bed bugs can "hitchhike" on used clothing, furniture, bed linens and possibly other items such as electronics and children's toys. Once bed bugs enter your home, it can be difficult to get rid of them.
