    What to do if you find a bed bug in your office

    -First, learn how to identify bedbugs.
    -Workers should report potential bed bug sightings and bites to: Contact the Health & Safety Representative for the worksite, who will document the sighting or bite and report it to management.
    -If possible, collect specimens. Use a pair of tweezers or forceps to pick up the bedbug and place in a zip-lock plastic bag or specimen bottle. Collected specimens should be identified by a qualified individual such as an entomologist or pest management professional.
    -When bed bugs have been identified in the building, workers should be notified and informed about how to prevent transporting bed bugs.
    -Workers should not bring or use pesticides at work.
    -A pest management professional should be contacted as soon as possible to inspect areas where bed bugs have been confirmed and render treatment as necessary.
    -Follow-up inspections and treatments should be made until there are no confirmed bed bug sightings for at least two months.
