Are you traveling for Thanksgiving?

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.

BedBugs continue their plight – invading Police Dispatching center

 

BedBugs force Portsmouth dispatchers to relocate” Bedbugs don’t care who you are, they don’t care if you are rich or poor. They don’t care if your a Firefighter or Policeman, so the key is that you are aware of their tenacious abilities at getting into your life.

One of the best things that I recommend are mattress and box spring encasements – such as CleanBrands

 

 

What I really like about these encasements is that they save your mattresses from the usual things:

  1. Accidental leakage – pets or toddlers
  2. Dustmites
  3. BedBugs
  4. Mitigates allergens

I  don’t always get creeped out with pests but BedBugs do it for me. I think about accidental infestation, maybe a lone bedbug falls into a pocket or shoe and I bring it home.

Take care traveling, check out the room and if you think you see something contact management. Don’t bring in used furniture without looking it over really well. Check out our webpage http://www.callprobest.com/bedbugs

 

Why is it important to keep out the bugs and rats?

From almost the dawn of man, rodents and bugs have been trying to stay close to us. Why you ask, I think the main reason is that we tend to want to stay dry and we collect things like food. Animals, bugs and us want the same things:

  • Food
  • Water
  • Shelter

So when we moved into caves, they followed. When we moved into houses, they followed. So as we became smarter so did they. Bed Bugs probably were Bat Bugs to begin with, they moved into caves because we did. When we moved into houses they followed.

 

With that movement came pest control, OK a version of it somewhat. When early man found Bat Bugs they might have thought of moving or washing the antelope skin they were sleeping on. Da da pest control, we might never really know who was the first to step on a bug but Pest Control it is!
