I’m really impressed by the fact that bugs hide so well. I guess eon’s of time has programmed them to survive and hiding offers them the chance to do it and well.
Notice all adult stages, including instars and eggs in the pictures.
Travel well my friends!
Well I thought this was a funny question, but it turns out they travel by mass transit. OK I’m kidding you but in NYC the bed bugs are spreading out by taking every opportunity to sneak to different locations by every means available. Libraries continue to see infestations, theaters and now modes of transportation.
So what can you do? Be aware of your surroundings, if you think you are being bitten take to to the person in charge of where ever you are. Most people don’t actually notice the bite but if you get home and you see bites or welts think about where you had been and call them and mention it.
MAKE SURE YOUR HOME AND FAMILY
All joking aside OK maybe that is not possible, I do have a few Bed Bug questions? Just for the record in case anyone is monitoring my blog from the NSA, TSA etc,”Freedom of Speech! I’m really just joking, really. “Senate undergoes emergency cleaning after woman drags in Bedbugs”
- How do we know that the Bed Bugs weren’t there for support from their colleagues?
- How will be differentiate between the Senators, Lobbyists and the Bed Bugs?
- With all the children coming into the US maybe the Bed Bugs were seeking asylum?
- I don’t know for sure but I’ll bet they acted faster on this issue than the “Highway Funding Bill.”
- Professional Courtesy.
Nothing is for sure except Death and Taxes – and I’m sure if we didn’t pay our taxes they would come after our blood. So take care my friends if you are visiting Washington D.C. because you never know what you may come home with.
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 probably have said this a few times but a really great reason to read my blog – I stay ahead of the curve on new species, updates on issues around the US and World and primarily issues with vector borne diseases.
“3 confirmed cases of Chikungunya virus in NC” A few of these diseases include symptoms that some of us could account for daily such as joint pain, headaches and rashes.
Stay well my friends…
