The bad news; bed bugs are considered a public health pest by the Centers for Disease Control, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the United States Department of Agriculture. The good news; bed bugs are not known as transmitters of disease.
Bed Bug Basics
One reason bed bugs have increased is due to their mobility, which includes being adept at world travel. With thousands of people traveling in and out of cities around the globe, it’s no wonder the bed bug population has increased as the wily bugs stow away in luggage, carry-ons, totes, clothing and anything else that’s handy.
Bed bugs are also masters at hiding as they prefer dark and cozy places. Their small size works to their advantage as they find places to hide and wait for their buffet – served up by humans. They’re focused on finding handy hiding places that range from headboards and desk drawers to storage boxes and under mattresses.
Regular over-the-counter pesticides don’t work; only treatments applied by an experienced NJ pest control service can rid your home of pests so you can avoid red and itchy bites.
