These bugs are a major pain in the — to many who thought it wouldn’t happen to them. Calls have increased due to summer travel, so please beware and take precautions. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has a lot of good information, so please take a moment of your time to read and understand.
Now on to a touchier situation, don’t believe everything you read about Bed Bugs but rather visit those sites that have good information. People still tend to I read this or that and I try my best to set the record straight, but the NPMA really is the authority on bugs. They set the standard with QualityPro and a staff Entomologist. The more you know = KNOWLEDGE and we all know that Knowledge is Power.
I’m sure you’ve heard this old adage, but why is it that people don’t believe me when I tell them bug facts? Well I’m being a bit facetious but sometimes I get frustrated. I was talking to a property manager about 2 years ago and she said she gets tired of people dumping furniture in dumpsters because the Bed Bugs are jumping out of them. I tried to convince her that that wasn’t possible. It was in July and the temperature within that dumpster must have been over 150, the only way they were getting out was if someone jumped in a brought them out. Recently someone said their friend told them that ticks can drop on you from trees. The only way that happens is at about the height of an animal, not from the pine cones or higher.
So here are a few tips to avoid bringing these little biters home:
- Don’t purchase used items, if you do take precautions. If you buy a dresser or nightstand – check it and treat accordingly.
