Did you know a female bed bug typically lays one to five eggs a day – and up to 500 in a lifetime? How about the fact that bed bugs can make their way into purses or stuffed animals?
Rose Pest Solutions, the nation’s oldest pest management company providing industry-leading pest management technology, is offering tips and sharing solutions for residential and commercial clients to ensure their homes and businesses remain bed bug-free during Bed Bug Awareness Week (June 7-13), as well as throughout the rest of the year.
As states start to ease and lift stay-at-home restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, many Americans are getting set to embark on their summer vacations – and as excitement for traveling starts back up again, so does the threat for bed bugs. Vigilance is key to preventing bed bugs from ruining a vacation or “staycation,” and it is important to know what to look out for and how to limit the chances of these hitchhiking pests wreaking havoc in your home or business.
Some telltale signs of bed bug presence or infestation include:

Here’s how you can help prevent these unwanted guests from taking up residence in your home or business:
Rose also offers additional do-it-yourself tips on this Youtube playlist that gives clients a visual representation of what to do if they believe bed bugs are present in their home or office. If DIY treatments aren’t enough, Rose Pest Solutions professionals can eradicate the infestation quickly and completely. Rose offers Canine Inspections for quick, accurate detection of bed bugs – and with the same high-level accuracy of bomb-sniffing dogs, Rose’s certified canines can search an entire room in two to three minutes for live bed bugs and eggs. Once detected, Rose presents a variety of eradication methods, including effective structural heat treatment, a manual method using chemicals, and fumigation for extreme cases.
