When I was young my mom used to tell me before bed “night night, sleep tight, dont let the BED BUGS BITE! ” I never saw it as a true threat–until now.
As a college student, one of the biggest problems in dorm rooms are bed bugs! This infestation has caused an uprise of fear in the minds of young studnets. One of my best friends had a case of bed bugs, She is an OCD clean neat freak and i could not believe it. Turns out that our school does not fumagate the dorm rooms over the summer after every student has moved out. The residents who lived in the room before her had them but did not report anything so all of her roomates had to go through a lot of trouble.
NEED TO KNOW’s
It starts with a rash, a person wakes up itchy thinking they may have been bitten by a mosquito or have had an allergic reaction.
Bed bugs are not caused by poor sanitation or ones social status
Bed bug infestations must be introduced by bringing in an item that has bugs or eggs associated with it
Poor sanitation, particularly clutter, can make it much more difficult to control or eliminate a bed bug infestation
Eating on you bed can cause them.
Matt Martinez,a exterminator for Bowco Exterminating says,” Bed bugs are best handled by a professional. Physical methods such as vacuuming or hot laundering can be helpful. Vacuums that are used to remove bed bugs can become infested. Beds do not have to be thrown out, they can be saved by using an appropriate mattress & box spring encasement. Sleeping in a different room or vacating the structure is not a solution and can make the problem more difficult to eliminate.”
Bed bugs are a annoying and horrible thing to have. If you have bed bugs and are looking for an extermator you can get in touch with Matt or his team at : Bowcow Exterminating 75 Freeman street, Woodbridge NJ. (732 636 2543).
