Prevent Bed Bug Infestation

Bed bugs are every homeowner's biggest fear. They are small, wingless, parasitic insects that inhabit sofas, beds, mattresses, and other home furnishings. Bed bugs are a growing problem in homes, dorms, hotels, shelters and more. They are very hard to see, given they only grow 0.25 inches long when they're full adults. 

Bed Bug Control in NJ
How do we prevent these creatures from inhabiting your home or biting you? You want to prepare yourself, especially when you travel. 

A few key things you will always want to carry with you when you travel are a flashlight, in order to inspect hotels, and rental cars. Another is a hard-shell or collapsible suitcase. These suitcases can be easily washed and don't have seams or folds that the bedbugs can burrow inside of. Next, you want to read reviews online of places you are staying at. Chances are, if they have reviews talking about cleanliness or a bedbug incident, you shouldn't book it. 

When you are inspecting a room be sure to store your luggage in the bathroom. Bedbugs usually avoid bathrooms because of the slippery tile. You'll want to inspect the headboard, sheets & pillows (I would ask for a fresh set regardless, but check anyway), the box spring, and the nightstand. Remember, you are looking for small black dots that look like ground pepper. 

Once you come home from your travels it is very important to wash your clothes with hot water. Be sure to re-inspect all your luggage carefully before bringing it into your home. 

These are some key preventative measures you can take to protect yourself from bringing home these little critters. Since they are so difficult to eradicate yourself, it is important to call a professional like,  Alco NJ Animal & Pest Control to eliminate your bedbug infestation.
