The Ick Factor: NYC Cockroaches Exposed in Viral Video

Just in case you need another reminder of how gross cockroaches are, this viral video from Instagram user Martin James shows several dozen of the pests swarming out of a New York City subway drain to feed on discarded food. The video demonstrates why NYC cockroach control is such a daunting task. Where there is one cockroach, there is most certainly a lot more.

Roaches reproduce frequently and in large volume. They are able to adapt a tolerance to poisons about as quickly as new ones are developed. They have also learned to avoid some of the sweet tasting bait traps. It is no wonder they are considered superpests. The lowly roach is able to thrive in just about every environment on the planet and can be found everywhere in the United States from Alaska to Florida.

Although it is unlikely that cockroaches would be able to survive a nuclear blast, they have survived for about 350 million years and earned their reputation as resilient pests that are very difficult to eliminate. They do not just infest dirty households. You can be a meticulous housekeeper who never leaves a crumb on the floor and still suffer an infestation.

Call the experts in NYC cockroach control at Stern for fast, safe extermination. We will evaluate your situation and develop an effective course of action to protect your family from these disease spreading creepy crawlers.

NYC’s Top Hotels Are Outed for Bed Bug Problems

New York City hotels are fighting a tiny menace that makes life miserable for guests. Bed bugs have packed their bags and moved in to some of the top hotels in the city.

The tiny bloodsuckers infiltrate bedding, walls, drawers, curtains, suitcases, tote bags, clothing, or anything else they can attach themselves to for a free ride to a new destination. Upon arrival the bed bugs set up housekeeping, then wait for the food buffet – which is the guests – to arrive.

Bed bugs can bite multiple times leaving red, itchy welts. While not disease carriers, some people do have an allergic reaction.

According to a report from the Bedbug Registry, New York has experienced an increase in bed bug complaints of over 44 percent in two years. This is alarming as the hotels used for the report are members of the Hotel Association of New York City.

Out of 272 association members, a whopping 65 percent had received at least one bed bug complaint. Another 18 hotels had a total of 363 bug complaints which equals 42 percent.

NYC bed bug control is at the top of the list for members of the association and to fight the insects, they have implemented anti-bedbug programs.

Whether you have a rental property, home, or business, consider NYC bed bug control for your property. Contact Stern Environmental Group for an inspection and treatment by our experienced staff.

The world-wide bed bug infestation continues to rise as the tiny bloodsucking insects invade homes, businesses, planes, trains, automobiles, and any other location that offers a snug environment and readily available food sources.

Another area being hard hit by bed bugs is the hospitality industry. Namely, hotels, motels, inns, resorts, and bed and breakfasts. This includes 2-star to 5-star establishments. No business is safe from the small marauding bugs.

One thing that is adding fuel to the fire about bed bug infestations where hotels are concerned is the negative reviews being posted on popular social media sites. With multiple places available where disgruntled guests can share their bed bug experience with millions of people with an instant post, hotels are losing ground fast and taking a hit financially.

A negative post can have a potential guest think twice before booking a room and this has many hotels scurrying to meet the problem head-on by hiring pest control companies to immediately address the problem.

For residents and business owners who are experiencing an infestation, you need the expert services of a NYC bed bug control specialist. Trying to rid the problem on your own will most likely not be successful.

At Stern Environmental Group, our NYC bed bug control technicians have the experience, products, and the treatments available to rid your property of the pesky pests. Call Stern today and be bug free, tomorrow.
