Bedbugs?

I think I mentioned in a recent post that I have recently returned to Chicago. I live in a communal situation here, with lots of shared bedding, hand-me-down mattresses, etc.

I didn't see anything like this in the memories, but I am now concerned about the possibility of having eggs in my hair. I am not native to this part of the country, so I have never dealt with an issue like this, and I am not sure what to expect. Is this a possibility?

Have any of you been through something like this? What did you do?



Edit: To be certain, I want to say that I am not meaning this as an off-topic post. I am doing a lot of research about how to take care of this issue in my home. I am specifically worried about the possibility of eggs ending up in my hair, because while they could easily be washed out of un-dreaded hair, dreads seem to provide a lot of nooks for them to hide in. This doesn't seem to be information that would be easily sourced elsewhere on the web, so I thought I'd ask you great gudu folk, who always seem to have unending and intelligent insight when it comes to these things. Thanks!
