Why Bed Bugs Aren’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon
Bed Bugs—two words that have become infamous for several reasons. One, they are exactly the type of insect that so many fear … they hide during the day and come out at night to feed on unsuspecting humans. Secondly, once you have them in your home they are extremely hard to eliminate.
Think you have Bed Bugs and want to try to get rid of the problem on your own? No chance. This is a job for professionals. We are experts in Bed Bug elimination and control, and this is exactly what you will need should you have or suspect Bed Bugs in your home.
The problem is not going away, and in fact, a new report shows that the number of Bed Bugs in New York City hotels has sky rocketed. What’s more, one of the most common ways Bed Bugs get into homes is by bringing them back after travel. Hotel beds, furniture and even luggage racks are common areas to find these pests. They then latch onto belongings and “hitchhike” their way into homes.
So, what can you do while traveling? In short, be sure to lift up the bed sheets and inspect the mattress (bear in mind Bed Bugs tend to hide in the seams of mattresses) and consider leaving your suitcase in the bathtub, as this is one area that Bed Bugs are unlikely to be found.
What do you think? Will you be storing your luggage in the bathtub from now on when you travel? What other precautions do you take when it comes to Bed Bugs?
