Summer is Prime Bed Bug Season
It’s summertime! The kids are out of school. There is time for a family vacation. The in-laws or family are coming for a visit. Summer camp, sleepovers, and gatherings are all prime time for bed bugs to expand their conquest of humanity.
Bed bugs are spread by people. We go on vacation to that ritzy resort and we bring home bed bugs. The kids to summer camp and come home with more than lice. Bed bugs love to hitch a ride in our clothing – dirty or clean – and once they get into a new house they go unnoticed until their population is large.
Bed bugs feed on human blood. They will bite you pets if they are desperate for food, but for the most part they prefer to drink human blood.
Bed bugs are difficult to get rid of once they have infested your home or business.
Bed bugs are happy to infest both homes and businesses, even office buildings. They prefer hotels and rental houses of all sizes and star ratings. Bed bugs do not discriminate. They will infest the richest house on the block or the poorest.
Bed bugs are on example of an insect or pest that has adapted to live with modern humans. Because so many of us travel from one spot to the next, the bed bug population is almost everywhere on Earth.
Bed bugs hide during the day making it difficult to kill them. The trick is to use heat and steam instead of pesticides. Steam is very safe to use on furniture and beds and in places where you would not want to use pesticides. This makes it more effective as a treatment.
