Allergic To Bed Bugs? | Allergists detect, treat often …

by simmons ·

PHOENIX, AZ (November 15, 2010) Want another reason to fear bed bugs? They can sometimes set off allergic reactions, asthma attacks and anaphylaxis according to allergists at the annual scientific meeting of the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) in Phoenix, Nov 11-16.

Most individuals bitten by bed bugs get red bite marks that are mildly itchy. But those who are allergic can experience intense itching, swelling, redness, hives and blisters. The bugs can trigger asthma if a large group of them become airborne. And, although rare, those who are highly allergic to the bites may experience anaphylaxis, a life-threatening reaction that can cause trouble breathing, hives or swelling or tightness of the throat

The source of the reaction often goes undetected because symptoms can be written off as flea or horse fly bites, said allergist Richard deShazo, MD, of the ACAAI Insect Hypersensitivity Committee. If you have allergies or asthma and you don t know the cause of your skin irritation, see your allergist.

Those allergic to bed bug bites notice their bites become increasingly itchy. Scratching them can lead to infection. Allergists treat the bites with antihistamines and corticosteroid creams. Allergists are specially trained to treat asthma and can help patients who are having asthma flare ups due to bed bugs.

Allergists attending the ACAAI meeting will attend a workshop to better familiarize themselves with the growing epidemic of bed bugs, best diagnostic approaches, and approaches to insect extermination. Allergists receive training in reactions to insects, including wasps, yellow jackets, hornets, fire ants, stinging flies, bed bugs, and others as a part of their clinical training and are an excellent resource for patients who think they may have insect reactions.

FAQ: dry cleaners and bed bugs – Bedbugger.com

by simmons ·

Experts recommend washing and drying clothes on hot or dry cleaning them, and keeping them sealed in bags for the duration of treatment. The dry cleaning idea brings up a problem: you must tell the dry cleaners about the bed bugs before giving them your sealed-in-a-bag clothes.

A reader asked,

Did you have problems finding dry cleaners to accept your clothes?

I personally did not, but I did not have much stuff that needed to be dry cleaned. If your things can be washed and dried on hot (until seriously, seriously dry and hot), thats probably better, cheaper, and safer.

If it cant be washed and dried but can be put in the dryer when it is already dry on hot for a shorter period of time, then this is probably also a good option. Bed bug researcher Dr. Michael Potter says dry for hot for 5 minutes, if the item is already dry, and he seems to know his stuff! But if that skeeves you out, 20 is probably even safer for many clothing items that may be thicker than a sock. If drying only does not seem clean enough to you, you can always dry in this way, then bag the item until a full dry cleaning were possible, say in a few months when the bed bugs seem to be long gone (hopefully).

Id be interested in hearing from others about their dry cleaner experiences.

I dont doubt that many people simply take the stuff in to be cleaned, and say nothing, but I think thats very dangerous. Better to take them in in a sealed bag and explain that they had been exposed to bed bugs and should be kept separate from other items until dry cleaned.

I could fully understand some dry cleaners not wanting to deal with that, but there will be others who will want your business regardless. Id expect some careless others to say sure, but if they dont much about bed bugs, they might not pay much attention to what happens. If youre lucky, they will agree and theyll care.

While were at it, wash and fold services are very popular, especially in cities like New York. I seriously dont recommend using them. The risk of transmitting the bed bugs to the business and to othersboth workers and other people via their laundryis too great.

If it seems like a good time to weed out which clothing items you can give to charity, wash, dry and bag them firstat least they wont be sitting around your house in bags for weeks.

You may also want to just throw things away, but think about it carefully; here in NYC, seeing people pick through other peoples garbage is a daily occurrence. Even if you dont see it, it happens at night, everywhere.Okay, Im off my soapbox. Anybody got dry cleaning stories to share?

Update 12/07: a word of warning. In our forums, Doug Summers wrote:

I think we need to be careful when we discuss dry cleaning. Traditional dry cleaning uses perchloroethylene or Perc instead of water. Dry cleaning used to mean a wet cleaning method that does not use water.

Some newer environmentally friendly dry cleaning methods utilize water in the process to eliminate the health issues that are associated with exposure to Perc. These methods are essentially a mechanical method using a cold water delicate wash approach. I dont know if the No Perc methods will actually kill bed bugs.

So you might want to make sure your dry cleaner uses PERC.

I think this is another reason to try and use wash/dry (drying wet items on hot until really dry and really hot) or drying dry items on hot (see above).

I also would not rely on dry cleaning or even wash/dry or dry/dry methods with thick items like pillows, comforters, and sleeping bags. It cant hurt, but I would not be very confident.

We Clean Bed Bugs, Canada

by simmons ·

Why is it difficult to get rid of Bed Bugs?

Bed Bugs hide in cracks and crevices of any object surrounding the area where they feed. They are excellent hitchhiker and can easily hold to any objects.Not everybody react to bed bug bites which doesn’t transmit disease but cause itchiness and anxiety at night. Which leads to fatigue and stress.One female can pond 5 eggs a day at different location. An egg take 7-12 days to hatch depending of ambient temperature. It will take 5 weeks for a new born to become an adult and reproduce.Eggs are resistant to chemical which forces bed bug extermination company to come back after they hatch to treat new born with bed bug spray. Heat kills the eggs and adult as long as a minimum temperature of 113 degrees Fahrenheit is maintained for 60 minutes.We use advanced technique to monitor and make sure we don’t miss any hiding spot and kill everyone of them. We guarantee it!

Identifying Bed Bugs – Orkin Canada

by admin ·

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 Identifying Bed Bugs

Since bed bugs are nocturnal and so small, detecting them can be very difficult. Signs & symptoms of a bed bug infestation can be found in bedding and on mattresses. People will sometimes roll onto bedbugs while sleeping, resulting in blood stains on the sheets. Live bed bugs will leave dark brown or black spots of dried excrement on infested surfaces after feeding and also exude a very subtle sweet, musty odour.

Bedbugs are small, flat and have oval-shaped bodies. They have six legs and two antennae. Bed bugs cannot fly and have short, golden coloured body hair that can make their bodies appear to be striped.

Adult bed bugs are reddish-brown in colour and approximately 5-6mm in length. After feeding, bed bugs can swell to upwards of 10mm and get fatter and darker in colour.

Bed bug nymphs are approximately 1-4mm in length (the size of the head of a pin) and are white or a golden colour until they feed. This light coloration acts as a camouflage and helps them hide in mattresses and carpets.

Our well-equipped laboratory helps Orkin Canada Technicians and our clients identify the exact species of pest in an infestation.

The Orkin Canada QA lab is well equipped with the latest in diagnostic and identification technology.

Equipment used for analytical entomology in the QA lab includes a compound microscope with digital camera. It is capable of magnifying objects up to 1000x times and capturing images at a high resolution to assist our technicians with high defined analysis (examination) of extremely small specimens.

Wednesday’s letters: Rail is the most civilized travel but for the delays – Edmonton Journal

by admin ·

Views from the Via Rail Skyline dome car Via Rail Canada.Photo supplied by Via Rail Canada.Via Rail Canada / Via Rail Canada

Re. Its time to treat rail passengers better than freight, Opinion, Aug. 25

After reading Greg Gormicks guest column on the Via Rail problems, I am inclined to write a note about some of my experiences on the train.

First let me say, it is the most civilized mode of travel ever; the food is excellent, the staff are a blessing and the trip across Canada, which we have done twice, is just wonderful.

However, the delays due to freight trains are really disturbing and inconvenient as well. At one point in a return trip from the Maritimes, we were 12 hours behind schedule. Granted, we were well looked after by the Via staff but timetables are made for a good reason.

Given the cost of travelling by train, passengers should take priority over crude oil and sundries.

Linda Dowhaniuk, Edmonton

Re. Province facing flak on daylight savings bill, Aug. 28

I must agree with the comments regarding the time and money that is being wasted on the debate about scrapping daylight savings time.

There are most definitely more important issues that need our politicians attention. I smile at the way the poll results are presented with the statement that 76 per cent of respondents are in favour of scrapping the twice-yearly time change. However, that is only 76 per cent of 13,600 people that replied which equates to 10,336 Albertans in a population of roughly four million that are influencing this decision.

Rob Pritchard, St. Albert

Re. Maybe Fildebrandt had the right idea, Letters, Aug. 23

The suggestion to rent out the suites used by MLAs seems reasonable enough.

However, when security concerns are considered this may not be a good ideas. Listening devices and hidden cameras are obvious concerns. In terms of health concerns, there are bed bugs and attempted poisonings.

The proposal does not seem worth it considering the risks and ongoing costs of dealing with them.

Richard McFarlane, Edmonton

Hiring a dentist is like hiring most other professionals. No matter what your income level, if you are concerned about prices, (including co-pays) shop around.

Call different dentists and ask what they charge for basic services such as cleaning and and fillings which will give you some idea of their fees for other services. You will find some dentists are cheaper than others. Smaller clinics with less overhead are generally cheaper. I had a dentist once whose fees jumped considerably when she moved a newer, fancier location.

As for seniors on fixed incomes, many qualify for the Alberta Seniors Benefit which covers $5,000 worth of dental work over a five-year period. If you are a senior and unaware of this program, call to see if you qualify.

I hope this helps since it is unlikely the government will act any time soon regarding this issue.

Linda Parker, Edmonton

Re. Sustainable beefpilot aimed at combating criticism, Aug. 17

I applaud the beef industry for its first attempt to take a long hard look at how bad their industry has become.

The greed and ignorance of meat producers has created tainted beef. And over the past decades this has created an attitude of acceptance of poor practice and diminishing quality.

I recently watched the documentary What the Health. I now avoid not only beef, but all meat products. I refuse to eat chemical-laden meat. The callous treatment of animals and pumping up profits by using chemicals that are potentially carcinogenic has turned me off.

But my beef is also with Health Canada. Under their watch, little has been done to educate the consumer of the dangers of consuming the additives in meat. Agriculture ministers have turned a blind eye to the conditions the animals have had to endure before being slaughtered in some of the most inhumane methods possible.

Start to push the meat industry to change; our health depends on it as do the animals subjected to pain and suffering their entire lives.

L.G. Anderson,Spruce Grove

Vancouver, Surrey among most bedbug-infested cities in Canada – Sylvan Lake News

by simmons ·

Bed bugs are tiny, yet can become such a nuisance in an otherwise happy home.

With summer season the ideal time for travel, pest control company Orkin Canada released a list Tuesday of the top 25 Canadian cities dealing with the unwelcome visitors.

RELATED: Problem plagued Maple Ridge home to be torn down

The rankings were based on all the companys bed bug treatments at residential and commercial properties from July 1, 2016 to June 30 of this year.

Toronto may appear to be the natioanl capital for the pests, but Vancouver made the list at No. 3 as the best of the worst in B.C.

Surrey also clinched the top 20 spot and Burnaby was the 21st worst for the troublesome little critters.

The top 10 cities were:

Entomologists say having a clean room does not prevent bed bugs, which can each lay up to five eggs in one day.

Orkin suggests keeping all luggage elevated while youre on vacation and away from soft furnishings.

RELATED: Bedbugs are here to stay what can we do about it?

Upon returning home, luggage should be left in the garage and all clothing run through the dryer at the highest appropriate temperature for 15 minutes.

To find bed bugs, homeowners can inspect beds, soft furnishings and framed pictures thoroughly and look for insects, blood stains, dead bugs and eggs.
