This story is out of London but really fits with everyday life and Do It Yourself issues with Pest Control. These bug bombs have there place, primarily dealing with flying bugs.

First off – Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Over the roads and through the woods, oh wait that is Christmas but if you are traveling please plan ahead for unwanted pests.

  1. Are you spending the night out, are you visiting friends or staying at a motel. Bedbugs can and do travel. The National Pest Management Association “Reminds travelers to pack bed bug prevention tips” you don’t want or need these pests at your home.
  2. Visit the site (All things BedBugs).
  3. At the first sign of any pests seek out a Pest Management Professional and your Holidays should be pest free.

Can Bedbugs transmit diseases?

My favorite bug is in the news once again – The Kissing Bug, apparently the dreaded Bedbug may now transmit a similar disease carried by the Kissing Bug.

In a study published online this week in the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, senior author Michael Z. Levy, PhD, assistant professor in the department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, and researchers at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in Peru conducted a series of laboratory experiments that demonstrated bi-directional transmission of T. cruzi between mice and bed bugs.

So if you live in the South I highly recommend making sure your screens are in place, wear repellent when hiking an if you have horses or cattle keep an eye out for the Kissing Bugs

and

If traveling store your suitcase or luggage in the bathroom until you make an inspection of your hotel room, don’t accept or purchase furniture with inspecting it as well.
