Bugs Got You a Little Embarrassed? Stern Protects Your Privacy

There’s no need to be embarrassed. So you have a bit of a bug problem. It happens to the best of us. Insects and other pests are notorious in their ability to adapt and take advantage of their environment. When their adaptability makes them at home in your home or business, it’s annoying, irritating — and, yes, embarrassing. What will the neighbors — or your customers — think if they spy the little buggers creeping around your home or business?

Despite the facts, bugs are associated with filth and dirt. But bugs are equal opportunity invaders. They’ll get down and cozy in a clean house just as quickly as in a dirty one. Unfortunately, the common misconception can make a homeowner uncomfortable and ruin a businessman.

Return of the Bed Bug: Why They Are a Problem

Small, wingless insects, bed bugs are making a comeback in the United States. Throughout history bed bugs have plagued humanity. The use of powerful insecticides nearly eradicated the pest in America and other modern industrialized countries after World War II. However, many of those potent poisons were found to create unacceptable risks to humans and the environment, resulting in their removal from the pest control and pest management arsenal. This has re-opened the door to the pesky nuisance critters and bed bugs are returning in record numbers.

Their very nature makes bed bugs difficult to control and eradicate. About the size of a grain of rice, bed bugs measure about 1/4-inch long with oval, flat, reddish-brown bodies. Progressing through five nymphal stages, the voracious insects must feed at least once during each stage to develop to the next stage and to reproduce. Though they have a short life-span of only 6 to 12 months, adults feed every 3 to 5 days for 5 to 10 minutes at a time — that’s at least 35 to 60 mealtimes PER bug. Since bed bugs lay 200 to 500 eggs per cycle, that’s a lot of nibbling going on in your bed each night.

The prolific pests hide in tiny crevices and cracks in floors, furniture, molding and bedding, waiting to crawl out at night and feed while you’re sleeping in your bed. Their size, rampant reproduction, ability to squeeze themselves deep into the tiniest openings, and the ease with which they spread make bed bugs difficult to control and eradicate. A bed bug problem requires professional extermination.

The highly skilled technicians at Stern Environmental Group are experts at bed bug extermination. If you suspect you have a bed bug problem, call us today.

Defensive Action Will Keep Commercial Facilities Pest Free

You may not see them at first, but you could still have a pest problem — or develop one in the future. Most unwanted pests have adapted so well to the human landscape that often you don’t know they’re there until you have a major infestation on your hands. You and your employees may not notice a roach or two, particularly because, like many pests, they are nocturnal and don’t come out to feed and spread disease until the wee hours of the night when your facility is closed. By the time you’re housing enough pests to notice, the colony will be well-established and difficult to remove or control.

It’s like they say, the best offense is a good defense. By establishing a preventative Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program, you can ensure that your facility is pest free and remains free of future pest infestations. By taking action, you can ensure your customers and employees a safe, healthy, pest-free environment.
