Bed bugs are a growing problem throughout the United States and college dorms and off-campus apartments have been hot spots for bed bug activity. The constant turn-over of students and the movement of used furniture have likely heightened the infestation rates in these environments. Despite the summer hiatus, bed bugs continue to exist in college dorms because the bloodsuckers are able to abstain from feasting on their required blood meal for over a year. These tenacious bugs can easily wait until the next school term for a new batch of student to arrive. New York City pest control experts say that it’s important to protect yourself from bed bugs upon your arrival at any college campus.
