Summer Camps Can Be A Hot Bed of Bed Bug Activity

Many parents pay big bucks to send their children off to an over-night summer camp in hopes of creating fun memories. Summer camps are a great way for children to enjoy the great outdoors, learn new skills, ride horses, swim, canoe, rock climb, do arts and crafts, meet people from near and far, learn crazy songs, and make smores.

Click On Detroit reported on August 5, 2001, that a 10 year old girl got a bit more than fun memories from her week-long summer camp adventure last week. They report that bloodsucking bed bugs relentlessly attacked the little girl and kept her awake each night. According to the reports, the little girl said “When I was laying down to go to bed, I felt like little people pinching me. I couldn’t fall asleep.” Without a cell phone in hand, she was not able to alert her mother to her plight. The little girl continued to be attacked until she was moved to a new bed the last night of her stay at the camp.

Once delivered home, upon seeing the extensive bite marks on her arms, legs, stomach, and thighs, the young girl was taken to the emergency room where doctors confirmed that the massive bite wounds were caused by bed bug bites! You may read the article here.

NJ Pest control experts say that bed bug infestations have been reported extensively throughout all areas of the United States this summer season. Upon arriving home from camp, as an extra precaution, you should always leave camp gear outdoors until you can launder all items. Always launder all bedding, pillows, and clothing in hot water and dry on the hottest dryer setting immediately upon returning home. Vacuum all luggage, backpacks, purses, etc., paying particular attention to the seamed and zippered areas to make certain that no bed bugs or their eggs have hitched a ride home with your child. Pest control experts recommend using the Packtite Portable Bed Bug Killing Heat Chamber, which will kill all stages of bed bugs and their eggs within a few hours. It will also kill other bothersome critters like fleas, ticks, and lice too! Nothing stands a chance against the Packtite!
