Where Are Bed Bugs Found?
Bed bugs are not limited to any one specific type of habitat. These pests are found in residential homes, multi-family housing, apartments, hotels, condos, hospitals, schools and college campuses, office buildings, retail stores, and even movie theaters. These days, even five-star hotels are susceptible to bed bug infestations.
Are Bed Bugs Hard to Treat?
Although considered pests, bed bugs should not be equated with sanitation problems in hotels or homes, for that matter. Bed bugs are hardy and transient pests. They are often found in other areas, besides the bed. They are able to survive for several months without eating and can withstand a wide range of temperatures from nearly freezing to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. A pest control company can control bed bugs with constant inspection and treatment.
Why Are Bed Bugs Found In Hotels,
Bed bugs leave itchy, red welts on human skin. Adult bed bugs are hard to control because they can live months without eating. Once inside a home or hotel room, bed bugs spread rapidly through pipes, in vacuum cleaners, on clothing, and luggage. In a hotel, bed bugs can even spread from room to room, since guests may end up moving to another room.
Are Bed Bugs Just In Beds?
Bed bugs do not jut live in beds. They can live pretty much anywhere. They can be in chair cushions, sofas, behind electrical outlets, and cracks and crevices in baseboards.
Do Bed Bugs Carry Diseases?
Although bed bugs look like an insect that would transmit a disease, like a mosquito, there are no records of disease transmissions by bed bugs. However, the biggest risk factor for humans could be secondary bacterial infections, as result from scratching the skin from bites. If the skin breaks from scratching, bacteria could enter.
A good time to check for bed bugs, is after you return from a trip. Be vigilant in checking your luggage and clothing. If you think you have a bed bug infestation, contact a pest control company at the Lake of Ozarks. This is not a pest that can be controlled with do-it-yourself measures.
