Overnight camp is a highly anticipated event in many kids’ summer schedules. If your child is heading to one of the 7,000 overnight camps across the nation this year, these precautions will help ensure they only bring back memories.
Bed bug vigilance can start with a room inspection at drop-off. Here are some telltale signs:
If you suspect your child’s items are infested with bed bugs – or out of an abundance of caution – you can help prevent these unwanted guests from taking up residence in your home:
While freezing can kill bed bugs, it’s not recommended, as temperatures must remain at a constant 0 degrees F, both surrounding and inside your items, and they must remain in the freezer for at least four days for this method to be effective.
If preventative measures fail and bed bugs do invade your domain, do-it-yourself treatments are no match for these hardy pests. Rose offers canine inspections for quick, accurate detection of bed bugs. 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 with minimal to no disruption to a room. Early detection leads to lower remediation costs.
Once detected, Rose offers a variety of bed bug eradication methods including effective structural heat treatment, a manual method using chemicals, and fumigation for extreme cases.
With female bed bugs laying one to five eggs in a day and up to 500 eggs in a lifetime, 99.6 percent of pest control professionals have treated for the insect. Diligence is key in avoiding heavy infestations that can lead to long-term home damage and costs.
If you suspect you have bed bugs, find your local Rose service center and schedule a free inspection.
