We are a local health department (Elyria). We are trying to help a local business that sells recycled furniture and beds. Where can we find information on furniture reconditioning/treatment to assure that it's bedbug free?

The local business should consider heat treatments of recycled furniture and beds (strictly follow temperature recommendations and heating times) if they want to make sure that it is free of bed bugs. Containerized heat treatment of the items is an option. University of Minnesota has useful information on bed bug heat treatments.
