Bed bugs. Those two words are enough to make many peoples skin crawl. These little parasitic insects are a common problem in cities around the world and British Columbia is no exception. There was a time when bed bugs were virtually eradicated in the developed world, however, over the last two decades there has been a resurgence in their number.

There are many misconceptions regarding bed bugs and how bed bug infestations develop. It is very important for landlords and tenants to note that bed bugs are not necessarily a cleanliness issue. These insects can be brought into the home in a variety of manners, many of which are common day-to-day occurrences. For example, second hand furniture, books, and electronics can carry bed bugs. They can also come in by hitchhiking on visitors who have been in an area with a bed bug infestation; and these infestations are not limited to residential dwellings. Offices, libraries, and hotels have all experienced bed bug infestations.

The best way to prevent a bed bug infestation is to avoid bringing the bugs into the home in the first place. Vancouver Coastal Health provides tips on bed bug prevention, including washing and drying second hand clothes on a hot setting and when travelling, inspect your sleeping quarters for bed bugs as this will allow you to take additional precautions upon your return home.

Bed bug prevention guides can be found here and are available in English, Vietnamese, and Chinese languages.

What do bed bugs look like and how to spot them?

According to Brent Hampton of 1st Pest Control, Bed bugs look like tiny beetles and in their earlier stages of development, they can be translucent and milky white/yellowish in colour. As they develop into adults, they darken to a brownish-red colour. At their largest, they are smaller than an apple seed and as flat as a credit card.

Who is responsible when a bed bug infestation is discovered in a rental unit?

A question LandlordBC is often asked is who is responsible for the treatment of the unit if a bed bug infestation is discovered? The simple answer is that the landlord or property manager is responsible for the treatment of the unit. However, the tenant is responsible for cooperating with the landlords efforts to manage the bed bug infestation such as prepping the unit for treatment, washing and bagging clothing etc.

To treat the bed bug infestation the landlord will, most likely, need to enter the rental unit. Landlords have the right to enter the property to inspect and maintain rental units, however, tenants must be given a proper written notice and the landlord can only enter between the hours of 8:00 am and 9:00 pm. In cases of emergency, such as a flood of fire, the landlord can enter the unit without notice. Treating an apartment for bed bugs is not considered an emergency and therefore, tenants must be given proper notice and adequate time to prepare the units for the application of a pesticide.

What is the solution to control bed bugs?

Early detection is key to addressing an infestation. As noted above, bed bugs can make their way into rental units in a variety of fashions and once they are there they can be tricky to eradicate. There is no fast, inexpensive solution to bed bugs and a licensed pest control operator will be required because if the job is not done properly, the bed bugs will return and continue to spread! This creates a bigger infestation and the costs associated with treatment will increase.

Unfortunately, due to the behaviors of bed bugs, there is often a chance that more than one units will be infested, even if the other tenants have not noticed any bugs or have not experienced any bites. The pest control operator will advise if there is a need to treat neighbouring units. The rules regarding notice of entry will apply to those units as well. The landlord is responsible for the cost of treatment needed to eradicate bug bugs. However, if the treatment is successfully completed and the bed bugs return, the tenant would then be responsible for the cost thereafter.

Preparation is key to a successful bed bug treatment and prevention of further infestation. It is important that landlords are communicating with their tenants regarding what is required of them to ensure that the treatment is effective. For example, clearing out shelves, laundering all clothing and bedding, moving furniture away from walls, and removing clutter. It is important that all parties work together to address this issue, however if for some reason the tenant refuses to properly prepare their unit for treatment the landlord can issue a caution notice which could lead to a 1 month notice to end tenancy.

Are there any new developments or technologies in fighting bed bugs?

Mr. Hampton believes that the newest technology is heat treatment, a method thats been around for about a decade and has proven to be the most effective method of killing bed bugs, provided the pre-treatment preparation is followed precisely. Its worth noting that heat treatments are much more than simply setting up an industrial heater and leaving it on for a set amount of time. These heaters can not only be dangerous, but also destructive to possessions and not effective if the core temperature of every item in the home doesnt reach the killing temperature, adds Mr. Hampton. When dealing with bed bugs, the best option is to call a professional pest control company to resolve the issue. The pest control specialist will guide both the landlord and the tenant on how to prepare for the infestation treatment and tailor an inspection and/or treatment plan according the specific requirements.

According to a national pest control company, Halifax is the fifth worst city in Canada when it comes to bed bugs.

Orkin Canada based the ranking on how many bed bug treatments it performed in both residential and commercial settings across the country in 2018.

Toronto topped the list, followed by Winnipeg, St. John's and Vancouver.

Ottawa, Hamilton, Sudbury, Windsor and Scarborough round out the rest of the top 10.

The pests are oval shaped and flat, have six legs, two antennae and no wings.

Adults are around 5 mm in length but some can swell up to 10 mm after feeding.

Bed bug nymphs are approximately 1-4 mm in length -- around the size of the head of a pin -- and are white or a golden colour until they feed.

Because the pests are good hitchhikers, the company says early detection is key to reducing the chance of an infestation.

Other than actually spotting one, tiny dark coloured stains, cast skins and bites on the legs, arms, neck, or face are signs that they may be around.

The little blood suckers can be found anywhere, but mattress tags and seams, under seat cushions, behind headboards, in the creases of drawers, and buckling wallpaper or carpet are some of their favourite hiding spots.

Orkin says doing the following can help preventbed bugs in your home:

Bed bug bites: When bedbugs bite, you often see clusters of bites. Each cluster usually contains 3 to 5 bites that appear in a zigzag pattern. How do you know if you have bed bugs?

To find out if you have bed bugs, you need to look for two things:

Bites on your body: If you have bed bugs, youre likely to have bites. Bed bug bites usually cause itchy welts. These welts usually appear in a zigzag pattern as show in the photo above.

Youll seldom see bed bugs, so many people mistakenly believe that mosquitos, fleas, or spiders bit them. Sometimes people mistakebed bug bites for a common skin condition such as an itchy rash, hives, or chickenpox.

To make sure you have bed bugs, youll need to look for signs of bed bugs.

Although bed bugs dont usually require serious medical attention, they can cause a great deal of anxiety and restless nights. To help find bed bugs before they find you (and your belongings), dermatologists recommend looking for the following signs near places where you sleep.

Signs of bed bugs: This step is important. If you have abed bug infestation, you need to find out so that you can get rid of the bed bugs. Getting rid of the bed bugs is the only way to stop the bites.

If you have a large number of bed bugs, you may see the bugs. Most people, however, only see signs of bed bugs. To look for signs of bed bugs, check the places that people sleep for the following:

If you do get bed bugs and have many bites or a bite that looks infected, see a board-certified dermatologist. A dermatologist can treat an infection and help relieve the itch.

If you see bed bugs, they will likely scurry toward the closest hiding place. Any dark place such as inside a mattress or even a picture frame makes a good hiding place.

As you watch bed bugs move, it can look like they are flying or jumping because they can crawl quickly. Bed bugs cannot fly or jump; they can only crawl.

If you find signs of bed bugs, call a pest-control company or your property manager. You should not use bug spray or a fogger. These products have little effect on bed bugs.

You should see a dermatologist for treatment if you have:

Your dermatologist may prescribe the following to treatbed bug bites:

Allergic reaction: Some people may require an injection of an antihistamine, corticosteroid, or epinephrine (adrenaline) for a severe allergic reaction.

Infection: An infection may require an antibiotic. If the infection is mild, your dermatologist may recommend an antiseptic medication that you can buy without a prescription. Your dermatologist will tell you which one to use. Your dermatologist also may recommend an antiseptic to prevent a skin infection.

Itch: A prescription antihistamine pill or liquid can help. You also can apply a corticosteroid to the bites. Your dermatologist will tell you which is best for you.

If you do not have any signs of an infection or a serious reaction, you can often treat the bites at home.

To treatbed bug bites:

Bed bugbites usually heal and go away within a week or two.

A person dealing with bed bugs in Toronto should understand that the Federal Government of Canada has only approved a very limited number of pesticides that can be used by ANY company for bed bugs. It doesn't matter how large or small the company is - they can only use those limited products!

So, with that in mind - it would makes sense to hire a smaller, less overhead-burdened company to handle your bed bug problem. But, that's not the whole story.

Procedure is everything!...Read on...

With the mass media coverage of the bed bug problem in Toronto hitting record levels in the past six months, there have been numerous companies - one man start ups - that have hit the market. Be careful not to jump at the lowest price.

Here are some tips to help you choose what type of company you should be looking for - Ask them about the following:

To get rid of bed bugs in Toronto, the pricing structure should be based around what type of home it is. For example, a 5 bedroom house will surely cost more than a bachelor apartment... but how much more?

Bed bug extermination pricing in Toronto, if graphed over the last year, would look like a roller coaster. One year ago the average price for a 4 bedroom home was almost $2000. Today, the average price should be somewhere around $800. Now, as we discussed, not all bed bug treatments are alike!

Your exterminator should include at least two treatments for whatever price they quote to you. This has to do with 'breaking the life-cycle' of the infestation. It is rare indeed for a bed bug problem to be adequately dealt with in only one service!

Make absolutely sure that the company you go with will never leave you hanging. Meaning, make sure they offer a written service guarantee - no company can guarantee that you're bed bugs will be gone in a certain length of time - no company can do that! Bed bugs are simply too unpredictable an insect for that to be genuine. What you should look for isa companythat will guarantee that they will come back if you need them to and utilize different methods of extermination specific to your particular situation. This is referred to as IPM or Integrated Pest Management.

Beware of the guy that tells you that "one treatment should do it" or "...you don't need a written guarantee - I'll come back, trust me..." If you hear comments similar to this - move on!

At the very least, make sure the company you hire is BBB accredited! The Better Business Bureau hold companies to the highest ethical and moral business practices standards. The vetting process is intense and regular checks are done by the BBB on their accredited companies to ensure that those standards are constantly being met. Any bed bug exterminator you hire should be accredited by the BBB!

Pricing: Our latest research shows a sampling as follows:

4 Bedroom house, full treatment including steam as necessary:

Orkin $1,600 http://www.orkincanada.ca/ Toronto Exterminator.ca $799 http://www.torontoexterminator.ca/

To summarize, you should go with a company that specializes in bed bugs extermination. They should be willing to spend some time with you on the phone and in person discussing your bed bug problem when they arrive. They should utilize IPM or Integrated Pest Management (different methods) to solve your bed bug problem. Appropriate pesticide application, steaming, dusting and vacuuming should do the trick.

How To Identify A Bed Bug Infestation

Appearance - Bed bugs are small, usually only 4 - 5 millimeters in length. They have flat, oval shaped bodies. Bed bugs are usually light brown or reddish brown in color but will have a bright red abdomen immediately following a meal.

Behavior - Bed bugs leave straight rows of small itchy bumps on your body. Bed bug bites can cause itchy spots which can lead to infection if continuously scratched. Bed bugs can also bite pets in the home. Some people may not react to bed bugs bites, so while one person sleeping in an infested bed may show bites, another may not. Carefully check your bedding, take off all sheets, and inspect the mattress, paying close attention to the seams. If you see small rust colored, black or brown spots, these may be bed bug droppings. Bed bug droppings are made of digested blood, usually about the size of a felt tipped marker dot. You may also see bed bug skins that have previously been shed. Bed bugs can survive for up to a year without feeding.

There are many different ways you can get a bed bug infestation in your Toronto & Etobicoke home. Contrary to popular belief, bed bug cases do not just affect people in unclean living conditions. Purchasing pre-owned furniture, travel, and unknowingly visiting an affected home are common origins of a bed bug problem. In apartments, often one apartment with a Toronto & Etobicoke bed bug problem can spread the bugs to neighbors.

Do not feel embarrassed about a bed bug infestation. Many times it is beyond your control. We are here to help make sure your home will be bed bug-free by the end of our Toronto & Etobicoke bed bug treatment.

Bed Bugs begin to multiply in your Toronto & Etobicoke home if you do not treat quickly. More bed bugs mean more bites, greater chance of spreading bugs to your family and friends, and a more difficult time getting rid of a bigger infestation. Our bed bug treatment addresses both live bed bugs and any hidden bed bug eggs. By calling our trusted company, you are taking the first step to reclaiming your Toronto & Etobicoke and sanity from a bed bug problem.

Its a problem that no one wants to have, but bed bugs are a persistent problem in Halifax.

The problem has been steadily increasing over the years, said Brian Barton, president of BBD pest control.

I dont see an end in sight in the next five years.

READ MORE:Dirty laundry could be to blame for worsening global bed bug epidemic

Part of the problem is that the bugs are becoming resistant to certain treatments.

We as technicians can create a chemical resistant bug in as little as six months if were not careful, explained Barton, adding that its important to rotate which chemicals are used in the same area.

A recent survey by Orkin, another Canadian pest control company, ranked Halifax the fifth worst city in the country for bed bugs.

Pareesh Nogia is new to Halifax and was unaware of the ranking.

Ive heard people telling me, these places are really bad for bed bugs, he said. He found a place that was bed bug-free, but admits that the pesky critters are something he had to deal with before.

It feels disgusting. It looks weird to see bugs crawling on your bed.

Glen Hougan says hes never had to deal with bed bugs before but his co-op decided to have their apartments all checked as a preventative measure.

Hearing about people getting them, it just sounds like a complete horror story getting rid of them, he said.

Fortunately for him, nothing was found.

Its just a complete piece of mind.

WATCH:Sniffing out trouble in your home and office: K9 bed bug detection

And that piece of mind should not be taken for granted, says Barton.

The worst part of dealing with bed bugs is the mental aspect in the fact that they haunt you psychologically, he said.

Youre wondering if theyre gone if theyre still here, psychologically its a nightmare.

Barton recommends getting encasement for mattresses and box springs after getting rid of bed bugs just to be sure theyre gone, because if any bug appears, the encasement will make it more visible and you wont be left wondering.

As for prevention Barton says he highly recommends against picking up furniture off the curb, and any other secondhand furniture should be thoroughly inspected before bringing it home.

After travelling, he also recommends placing suitcases in a clear plastic bag until you are able to wash all your clothes in hot water, and vacuum the inside and outside of your luggage.

In less than two decades, this pest has gone from a rarely experienced irritant to a major problem, Orkin wrote in a news release.

To prevent bed bugs, Orkin says to dry potentially infested bed linens or clothing on the highest heat setting in a dryer.

They also suggest inspecting your luggage after a vacation, before bringing your suitcase in your home.
