One of the best pieces of news that a NYC/NJ bed bug exterminator can hear is that New York City officials have reported for the first time in years that bed bug infestations are down. That means our current methods are working. In fact, the Housing Preservation and Development Department reports that they’re down by almost 50%.
While this might be great news for homeowners, business owners, and public entities, the bad news is that there are still new reports coming in, and it seems that these NYC bed bugs are not willing to give up without a fight. They’re actually mutating by growing thicker skins, and this is allowing them to withstand many of the common insecticides that are generally used to eradicate them.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, there is some speculation that bed bug reports aren’t just down because the problem is getting solved, but because people are just learning to cope with the pests, and so they’re not reporting infestations. This creates a serious problem because without reporting them, bed bug infestations aren’t receiving the attention needed to get them under control.
