Bed Bugs | City of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

by admin ·

Bed bugs are small oval shaped insects. They do not fly; they crawl and attach themselves to surfaces such as clothing, furniture and luggage. They are attracted to the carbon dioxide that we exhale and can affect anyone at any time.

Bed bugs are most active at night and are usually found where people sleep. They can also be found in any public space, such as businesses, offices and areas where people gather.

Bed bugs arenotknown to transmit infectious disease to humans. If bitten, some people may have an allergic reaction that presents as itchy welts. The mental health impacts to people living with bed bugs can include anxiety and insomnia.

These bite marks appear within minutes or days and are usually on the face, neck, upper torso, arms and hands. Not everyone reacts to a bed bug bite.

The following signs can indicate a bed bug bite:

Most bed bug bites go away on their own and do not need treatment.

Bed bugsare most active at night and are usually found where people sleep. They can alsobe found in any public space, such as businesses, offices and areas where people gather.

Bed bug activity can be identified by the following:

Place glue boards, double sided tape or bed bug interceptors under your bed legs to monitor and catch the bed bugs.

Places to look for bed bugs include:

It is important to take immediate action if you suspect that you have bed bugs. Bed bugs can spread rapidly so it is important to report these pests as soon as you suspect that they are in your home.

When you have reported bed bugs to your landlord or hired a licensed pest control company, follow their instructions on how to prepare your home for treatment. In addition, you can begin taking the actions recommended below for bed bug removal.

Removing bed bugs from your home can be a challenge. A licensed pest control company can help plan for an effective treatment. If you live in rental housing, the landlord is responsible for providing pest control services and you are responsible for helping to prepare your home for treatment. Combining the use of pesticides with activities performed by the resident has been shown to be an effective way to fight bed bugs.

Careful cleaning activities are the first step in effectively removing bed bugs. Every resident must clean prior to chemical pest control treatments by a licensed pest control company. Pay special attention to anywhere you see bed bugs during the inspection.Completing these activities will greatly increase the effectiveness of a chemical pest control.

Chemical pesticides can be an effective tool when all other recommended steps are taken as well. Only a licensed pest control profession should handle chemical pesticides.

If you live in rental housing, the landlord is responsible for hiring a licensed pest control contractor. Work with the contractor to keep your home pest-free.

The pest control contractor should inspect your home, describe the treatment and tell you how to prepare your home for treatment. Treatment should be done at least two times, 10 to 14 days apart, in order to effectively remove bed bugs and eggs that can survive after the first treatment.

Be careful about using pesticides yourself. Pesticides can be harmful to people and to pets.

There are some things you can do to prevent bringing bed bugs into your home.

If your work requires that you visit homes that may have bed bugs, take simple precautions to avoid bringing them home. Learn more about what precautions you can take.

Make checking for bed bugs part of your cleaning routine and check regularly. The earlier you find them, the easier it is to get rid of them.

Pest threat

Ants and mice are moving inside and wildlife may be looking for potential harbourage areas. Spiders are constructing egg sacs and mosquito activity is increasing. House fly activity can be expected. Commercial accounts will need to be aware of increased small fly activity. Nuisance wildlife, such as squirrels and chipmunks, will be much more noticeable.

Home Bed Bugs Bed Bugs in Hotels

Once inside a hotel or home, bed bugs can spread rapidly from room to room. They do so through pipes, in vacuum cleaners, on clothing and luggage. Sanitation and the cleanliness of an establishment is not an issue in where you can find bed bugs, and since bed bugs are such notorious hitch hikers they can be found in almost any establishment no matter how posh or upscale.

Although bed bugs can thrive in almost any type of building, hotels and motels are particularly vulnerable. Thats because of the transient nature of their clients and the ease with which these pests travel in luggage, clothing and furniture. Short of inspecting guests luggage as they check in, there is no known way to completely prevent bed bugs from entering a property. Once they are inside, two bed bugs can lay up to ten eggs in one day. Thats why it is important to have any rooms with a bed bug problem treated immediately to prevent them from becoming a widespread infestation.

Don’t bring bed bugs home from vacation – CTV News

by simmons ·

Sandra Hermiston and Ross McLaughlin , CTV Vancouver Published Tuesday, March 14, 2017 6:00AM PDT

Bed bugs dont discriminate, making homes in one-star and even five-star hotels. And if those bloodsuckers get into your luggage, theyll even come home with you and move in. But there are some simple things you can do to keep the critters away during your next hotel stay.

Consumer reviews on sites like TripAdvisor have some real horror stories. You can find headlines that warn about bed bugs at many hotels around the globe.

Thats why its important to take some simple steps when you check-in to help avoid any bed bug hassles and expenses when you check out.

It might sound extreme, but to be safe, put your luggage in the bathroom as soon as you enter the hotel room.

Bed bugs prefer anything dark and creviced that they can hide in like bedding, seams of fabric, furniture, even inside walls, so the bathroom is usually a the safe zone while you search the room for signs of critters, said Dan DiClerico with Consumer Reports.

Check the sheets, mattress and box spring for any signs of bed bugs. Look for dark, rust colored spots and exoskeletons, the casings the bugs leave behind. Dont forget to look at the head of the bed and in, around and behind the headboard too.

Be sure to lift and check under the mattress. It’s important to take action if you do find anything suspicious.

If you find any signs of bed bugs alert the manager immediately and ask for a new room in a different part of the hotel. Infestations can spread from wall to wall, explained DiClerico.

Even if your room is clear it’s a good idea to keep your luggage and clothes off the floor on a hard surface or luggage rack, clear of any potential bed bug zones.

If you’re concerned about hitchhikers coming home with you, you can avoid bringing them into your house by throwing all of your clothes into a hot dryer for 30 minutes. And store empty luggage in your basement, garage or a hot attic.

Pest threat

Ants and mice are moving inside and wildlife may be looking for potential harbourage areas. Spiders are constructing egg sacs and mosquito activity is increasing. House fly activity can be expected. Commercial accounts will need to be aware of increased small fly activity. Nuisance wildlife, such as squirrels and chipmunks, will be much more noticeable.

Home Bed Bugs Preventing Bed Bugs While Travelling

Everyone knows the saying, Good night, sleep tight, dont let the bed bugs bite. It has never been more true than it is now.

Bed bugs are extremely efficient hitch hikers. They can move easily across a room and climb onto luggage or anything left on a bed in just one night. Hotels are perfect homes for bed bugs because of the ready supply of fresh hosts to feed on, and the difficulty of sustaining bed bug control in such facilities over the long-term.

Upon arrival always inspect your hotel room. Travellers should look for live insects, blood stains, dead bugs and eggs throughout the room. Bed bugs are not a sanitation or cleanliness issue. This means bed bugs can be found in any hotel or motel from a one-star all the way up to a five-star location. What signs should you look for? With any large infestation of bed bugs you will notice a sweet, musty, odour, similar to soda pop syrup. Bed bugs will leave small brown or red spots on the sheets.

Bed bugs usually hide in close proximity to their food source you! Bed bugs are nocturnal insects and disappear into the crevices of mattresses (pay particular attention to the seams and crevasses), box springs, sheets, furniture, upholstery and hollow bedposts during the day. Other hiding spots include behind baseboards or pictures and even in any wallpaper that might be cracked or torn. You can lift and look around all these possible hiding spots in order to check for bed bugs in a hotel room.

Make sure to elevate your luggage and any other personal items. Always inspect the luggage rack carefully for any signs of bed bugs. If it appears free of bed bug signs use it to keep your suitcase off the floor and away from the bed. Moving the luggage rack away from the wall will help reduce the risk of bed bugs crawling up the wall and into your belongings.

When you are packing to check out always examine your luggage to make sure you have not picked up any unwelcome guests. Since bed bugs are such great hitch hikers be sure to check your luggage and clothing upon your return home. Many recommend unpacking and checking in your garage or utility room.

When you return home, leave your luggage in the garage, and immediately launder all cloth items. The first places bed bugs typically encounter are bags and suitcases so keeping your luggage outside may help keep them out of your home. Depending on where you live, keeping luggage outdoors may also leave bed bugs outside their comfortable range of temperatures. You can also eliminate bed bugs that may have gotten into clothing by laundering (washing and drying) all fabric items in hot water, although recent studies show that 20 minutes in a clothes dryer is all that is needed to ensure 100% control.

Efficiently treating and detecting for a bed bug infestation requires the use of a licensed, professional Pest Control Operator with specific experience dealing with these pests. No one has more experience than Orkin Canada so call today and schedule a bed bug inspection.

Bed Bugs Canada

Before I go into detail about this weeks topic, a personal story. Myself and a group of friends travelled over the previous weekend to a popular Michigan travel destination. Upon arrival at the hotel, because of my awareness, room inspections were completed and low and behold… Bed bugs in 1 of the 3 rooms where we were staying. The hotel agreed to move our 3 rooms to another wing of the hotel and after 3 more room inspections we were satisfied that we were clear. Unfortunately with bed bugs you must always be vigilant and not complacent.

Some of the highlights of this survey of Pest Professionals:

1) 99% have encountered Bed Bug infestations in the last year (11% a decade ago)

2) 9 of 10 Pest Pro’s dealt with bed bugs in homes, but they are especially on the rise in Pulic Areas:

-College Dorms – 54%, up from 35%

-Hotels/Motels – 80%, up from 67%

-Nursing Homes – 46%, up from 25%

-Office Buildings – 38%, up from 18%

-Schools/Day Cares – 36%, up from 10%

-Hospitals, – 31%, up from 12%

-Transportation – 18%, up from 9%

-Movie Theatres – 17%, up from 5%

3) Over 70% of Pest Pro’s name Bed Bugs as the hardest to control

4) Most Professionals feel Bed Bugs are year-round with a minority stating they get more bed bug calls in the summer.

5) Visual inspections are still the #1 monitoring/identification tool used. Although canine detection units are on the rise.

6) 25% of Consumers still attempt to DIY with bed bugs, but engage in often dangerous techniques and are mostly ineffective in their attempts.

You may ask why are Bed Bugs growing to such Pandemic porportions and why can we not get rid of them?

The answers lie in a multi-faceted answer. The largest factor that has allowed bed bugs to spread so effectively is that no one insecticide/pesticide is 100% effective in killing bed bugs on contact and residually. Current bed bug strains are resistant to most pesticides, meaning if you sprayed 100 bed bugs, only a portion of them would die, depending on the active ingredient. Most insecticides have very little residual effect, meaning after the pesticide is ‘dry’ bed bugs are not harmed by them.

Now remember bed bugs spend most of their time hiding in places that alot of the time are inaccessible, like in wall voids, electrical outlets, under carpets and the like. So if you have to kill them “on contact” it would be virtually impossible to find them all. Pesticides are just part of the problem. Other issues includes very porous multi-family home structures where bed bugs can move from unit to unit easily. This porous nature allows them to spread and move easily, while the moderate and heavily infested units are treated, the lightly infested units go unnoticed.

Furthermore, DIY’s and people that do not report the problem until they are largely infested compound the problem. Increased international travel has also caused the spread not only of bed bugs but of different strains of bed bugs that have different resistance levels to multiple pesticides currently used. Imagine in an apartment building, bed bugs from South America, India, and Asia, all transported from the host countries with varying degrees of resistances to the differing pesticides used in the industry. One pesticide will not control them all and so integrated pest management approaches and alternate methods need to be used now more than ever.

Vancouver Bed Bug Removal & Control – Onsite Pest Control

by admin ·

Bedbugs are parasites that have the potential to infest houses and especially things such as beds and mattresses. They feed on human blood and their bite usually leaves a large, reddish and itchy wheal. In Vancouver, the best way to avoid bed bugs is to never introduce second-hand furniture in to your home that hasnt been thoroughly inspected.

Bed bugs are small, wingless insects that are found all over the world. They are a nocturnal parasite. This means they rest during the day time and become active at night. However, it is important to remember that bed bugs are highly opportunistic parasites because they can bite even during the day if they need to feed. They primarily feed on the blood of humans and usually hide in beddings or on mattresses. This gives them quick access to their preferred source of food.

Bed bugs have highly evolved mouth parts that can pierce through the human skin. Quite a large number of people dont respond to their bites because they are relatively painless. However, other bites can result in itchiness and red swelling.

Even though bed bugs have the ability to harbour diseases in their bodies, transmission of these diseases is highly improbable. They are also not dangerous unless the individual happens to be allergic to their bite. Having bed bugs is usually a stressing factor for most people in Vancouver and their bites tend to be highly irritating.

The bite of a bed bug has some common features, some of which include:

The following are the main physical attributes of bed bugs:

In most cases, bed bugs will hide in beddings, clothing, luggage and furniture. They are often found in dwellings that have a high rate of occupant turnover such as motels, hostels, hotels, apartment complexes and shelters. However, any household can be infected with bed bugs.

The first signs of a bed bug infestation could be the presence of bite marks on the bodies of family members. With a thorough inspection of your home, especially in well-known hiding spots, you can reveal signs of bed bug infestation such as:
