Upholstered Headboards May Contain Bedbugs
We know bedbugs love to nestle in mattresses and linen, but they also love to hide in headboards. Anything that’s upholstered, or considered bedroom furniture for that matter, holds potential risk for bedbugs. Avoid buying headboards covered in fabric to minimize this risk. Carefully examine any headboard you buy in a thrift store to make sure there’s no potential bedbug infestation. This goes for wooden headboards, too. If there are cracks in the headboards, bedbugs can hide in there and lay eggs (JCEhrlich).
