Bed Bugs: Bloodsucking Creatures Of The Night!
Since the dawn of civilization, there has been a common legend among every culture. There is one terrifying story of sinister creatures that hide in the shadows during the day and stealthily steal into the safest confines of our homes, by night. They exist with one purpose, to feed on HUMAN BLOOD. They have mysteriously returned from perceived annihilation by shear will of patience. At times seemingly invisible, these demonic abominations of nature that can only be sustained through blood feedings... There ARE Vampires among us.
Where Did Bed Bugs Come From?
Over the last 10 years, Bed Bugs have reappeared from what was previously thought to be extinction. They have quickly become the scourge of hoteliers, hospices and homeowners. For years they were presumed to have been eliminated in the "civilized world." Whether due to pervasive pesticide use or advances in sanitation, we were wrong. Bed Bugs are not known to vector disease but remain among the most feared insects in the civilized world. People fear anything that may feed upon them. Bed bugs live in close proximity to the hosts resting areas. In mattress seams, headboards, carpet seams, night stands, etc. They are attracted to warm blooded creatures and CO2 expelled as we exhale (for instance as we sleep).
Hulett's Bed Bug Control to the Rescue!
Hulett is one of a handful of commercial pest control operations offering a wide spectrum of bed bug services including monitoring, preventive and curative solutions. Once a suspected infestation occurs, the Hulett inspectors will thoroughly inspect the area in question as well as the adjacent rooms. Should an infestation occur, the inspector will offer a curative program for the affected area, preventive for the adjacent areas, and monitoring for the entire facility. Bed Bugs may be re-introduced by anyone at any time. The key is early recognition of a hazard by partnering with hotel staff to vigilantly monitor the entire facility. Secondly, we must employ a preventive options in known, susceptible areas to inhibit an infestation. And finally, curative applications for those areas determined to have an active infestation.
Hotels, hospitals and businesses of any repute are managed and successful based on reputation for providing a safest and enjoyable environment to their patrons. Our society is replete with litigation but few would argue the validity of a claim for emotional or physical distress from an encounter with bed bugs in a commercial facility.
