Bed bugs have long been the nuisance of hotels, college dorms and other shared living spaces, with a female able to lay one to five eggs each day – with up to 500 a potential in its lifetime. Despite its name, bed bugs are not exclusive to beds – with the insects able to make their homes in chairs, couches, nearby drapes and even a child’s favorite stuffed animal.
At the forefront of the battle against these pests, Rose Pest Solutions, the nation’s oldest pest management company providing industry-leading pest management technology, is offering tips and solutions for residential and commercial clients to ensure their homes and businesses remain bed bug-free during Bed Bug Awareness Week (June 5-11), as well as throughout the rest of the year.
With many people soon embarking on a much-needed summer vacation, the threat from bed bugs remains ever-present – and vigilance is key to preventing these pests from ruining a planned outing. When bed bugs are suspected, it’s 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.
Telltale signs of bed bug presence or infestation include:
When it comes to early identification and prevention of bed bugs, Rose Pest Solutions’ trained team of canine handlers and bed bug sniffing dogs are the first lines of defense. The company relies on this squad of elite and highly trained canines to detect and identify live bed bugs and their eggs. The division deployed by Rose Pest Solutions is also one of the largest in the country.
Providing quick, accurate detection of bed bugs – with the same high-level accuracy of bomb-sniffing dogs – Rose Pest Solutions’ certified canines can search an entire room in two to three minutes for live bed bugs and eggs. If detected, the company will utilize a variety of eradication methods, including effective structural heat treatment, insecticide treatments and a variety of non-chemical approaches.
“Once bed bugs are inside your home, it’s incredibly difficult to get rid of them,” said Mark VanderWerp, manager of education and training for Rose Pest Solutions. “However, there are measures you can take to prevent the spread, especially if you’re traveling – because these insects often wind up on dirty clothes, or ride unnoticed on purses, briefcases and luggage.”
Rose Pest Solutions provides tips on how you can help prevent these unwanted guests from taking up residence in your home or business. Clients are encouraged to do the following:
Rose Pest Solutions also offers additional do-it-yourself tips on its YouTube page that provides clients with a visual representation of what to do if they believe bed bugs are present in their home or office.
