Bed bugs are booming throughout the US. The Bed Bug problem reaches as far us as New York City, with an estimated 30% increase in infestations over the past year. After 50 years of near extinction in the US, many pest control companies are wondering why bed bugs are back. Professionals blame international travel, and some blame immigration… however, its highly unlikely immigration is the cause. No matter the cause, the bed bug news keeps getting worse as the recent Bed Bug Summit came away with no real solution.
Here are a few quick tips in order of importance:
- 1- Cover mattresses with plastic bed bug covers.***
- 2- Wash your closes after staying in hotels. All clothes, both used and unused.
- 3- Wash your sheets regularly.
*** Mattress covers not only prevent Bed Bugs from nesting in your bed but can also help eliminate those that already have infested mattresses.
