Visitaton restored after bed bugs found at Pleasant Acres Nursing Home | WPMT FOX43
The key is to maintain vigilance against these hitchhiking insects from entering your home and workplace, especially during the summer when bed bugs are more active,” said Glenn Waldorf, director of Bell Environmental Services. “If you do encounter a problem with these adaptable and persistent insects, it’s best to act as soon as you detect it by calling a skilled professional. Bed bugs do not go away on their own and home remedies are typically ineffective, can make problems worse, and are sometimes dangerous.” To help prevent a bed bug infestation this season Bell Environmental Services offers five key tips. When returning from vacation or anywhere suspect, don’t drop your bags on your bed and unpack. Inspect and vacuum your luggage for hitchhiking insects. Place your clothing in sealed plastic bags. Then place the clothing in the dryer or send it to the dry cleaner, and throw out the plastic bags. Store your personal goods (backpack, purse, laptop bag, etc.) in enclosed bins.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bed bugs travel in the seams and folds of luggage, folded clothes, bedding and furniture. Most people dont realize theyre transporting bed bugs as they travel. Bed bugs are not known to spread disease, but they bite. Bite responses can range from no physical signs to serious allergic reaction, CDC said. Signs of a bed bug infestation include bites on the face, neck, arms, hands and other body parts; evidence of the bugs exoskeletons after molting; small bugs in the folds of mattresses and sheets; rusty-colored blood spots on mattresses or nearby furniture; and a sweet, musty odor, CDC said.
