Even if you do not see any Bed Bugs on items, female Bed Bugs drop eggs randomly as they roam. These eggs are very tiny and will not be noticed on your linens. Washing the linens will remove and kill these eggs. Likewise, if your couch is infested, you can also remove the cushion covers (if possible) and launder them as well. Please be aware that Bed Bugs were demonstrated to be able to survive a cold wash cycle even with detergent present. Back to What Now?
