Top 10 Myths about Bedbugs – Scientific American

by admin ·

Once a pest of the past, bedbugs now infest every state in the U.S.. Cimex lectulariussmall, flattened insects that feed solely on mammalian and avian bloodhave been living with humans since ancient times. Abundant in the U.S. prior to World War II, bedbugs all but vanished during the 1940s and '50s thanks to improvements in hygiene and the use of pesticides. In the past 10 years, however, the pests have staged a comeback worldwidean outbreak after the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney was a harbinger of things to come. This revival may be the worst yet, experts say, due to densely populated urban areas, global travel and increasing pesticide resistancesomething to consider as the summer travel season gets underway.

"By every metric that we use, it's getting worse and worse," says Coby Schal, an entomologist at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Health authorities and pest control operators are regularly flooded with calls, and the epidemic may not have yet peaked. And because bedbugs are indoor pests, there are no high or low seasons throughout the year, he adds, only continual bombardment. "It's just the beginning of the problem in the U.S.," Schal says.

Spreading rapidly with the bedbugs is a mass of misinformation about their biology and behavior. Straight from the experts, here are the facts behind some of the most notorious myths about the diminutive bloodsuckers.

Myth 1: Bedbugs can flyBedbugs lack wings, and therefore cannot fly. That is unless you put a blow dryer behind them, says Stephen Kells, a bedbug researcher at the University of Minnesota. Then they'll fly about 1.2 meters. On their own, bedbugs crawl about a meter a minute, he says.

Myth 2: Bedbugs reproduce quicklyCompared with other insects, bedbugs are slow to reproduce: Each adult female produces about one egg per day; a common housefly lays 500 eggs over three to four days. Each bedbug egg takes 10 days to hatch and another five to six weeks for the offspring to develop into an adult.

Myth 3: Bedbugs can typically live a year without a mealScientists debate this point, but evidence suggests that at normal room temperature, about 23 degrees Celsius, bedbugs can only survive two to three months without a blood meal. But because they are cold-blooded, their metabolism will slow down in chillier climates, and the insects may live up to a year without feeding.

Myth 4: Bedbugs bite only at nightAlthough bedbugs are generally nocturnal, they're like humansif they're hungry, they'll get up and get something to eat. "If you go away to visit a friend for a week and you come back and sit down on the couch, even though it's daytime the bedbugs will come looking for you," Schal says. Keeping a light on, then, unfortunately does not keep these tiny vampires away.

Myth 5: Bedbugs live exclusively in mattresses"'Bedbug' is such a misnomer," Kells says. "They should also be called pet bugs and suitcase bugs and train bugs and movie theater bugs." Bedbugs spread away from beds into living areas and can be seen on any surface, he says, including chairs, railings and ceilings.

Myth 6: Bedbugs prefer unsanitary, urban conditions"Bedbugs are terribly nondiscriminatory," Schal says. Bedbugs can be found anywhere from ritzy high-rises to homeless shelters. The prevalence of the bugs in low-income housing is therefore not a result of the insect's preference, but of dense populations and the lack of money to pay for proper elimination strategies. "Any location is vulnerable," Kells says. "But some people are going to have a harder time getting control of them because it is such an expensive treatment."

Myth 7: Bedbugs travel on our bodiesBedbugs do not like heat, Kells says. They therefore do not stick in hair or on skin, like lice or ticks, and prefer not to remain in our clothes close to our bodily heat. Bedbugs are more likely to travel on backpacks, luggage, shoes and other items farther removed from our bodies.

Myth 8: Bedbugs transmit diseaseBedbug bites can lead to anxiety, sleeplessness and even secondary infections, but there have been no reported cases of bedbugs transmitting disease to humans. They do, however, harbor human pathogens: At least 27 viruses, bacteria, protozoa and more have been found in bedbugs, although these microbes do not reproduce or multiply within the insects. Canadian researchers announced (pdf) in the June issue of Emerging Infectious Diseases that bedbugs isolated from three individuals in a Vancouver hospital carried methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, aka MRSA. Still, there have been no reported cases that the bugs actually transmit human disease.

Myth 9: We should bring back DDTWhen the controversial pesticide DDT was banned in 1972, most bed bugs were already resistant to it, Schal says, and today's populations are even more widely resistant thanks to the use of a new class of pesticides. Pyrethroids, the main class of pesticides used against bedbugs today, targets sodium channels in bedbug cells, just like DDT. Consequently, as bedbugs develop resistance to pyrethroids, they also become cross-resistant to DDT.

Myth 10: You can spray bedbugs awayThanks to pesticide resistance, those cans of spray at your local hardware store simply will not do, Schal says, adding: "Relying strictly on chemicals is generally not a good solution." The most effective solutions are fumigation and heat treatments, but these can cost a cool $2,000 to $3,000 apiece for a single-family home. Scientists are diligently pursuing other strategies, including freezing and bait similar to that used for cockroaches. In the October 2010 issue of the Journal of Economic Entomology Schal and colleagues at the U.S. Department of Agriculture published a technique that employs inexpensive infrared and vibration sensors to track bedbug movement, which could be applied to the development of automated traps that detect the pests.

Canada’s Government Is Looking For Pest Control Experts To Deal With Their Bed Bug Problem – Narcity

by admin ·

The nation's federal buildings have a big problem, and they're looking for help. The bed bugs in Canada's government buildings have gotten out of hand. Now they are looking for pest control contractors to take care of the problem.

A tender notice posted December 19, 2019 on the Public Works and Government Services website indicates that pest management services were being sought out for buildings in Ottawa and the surrounding area, as well as a number of other Ontario cities. The posting closed on January 27.

A second posting on the website from February 3, 2020, is also looking for pest control management contractors to work in the national capital region. The closing date is March 16.

According to CBC News, 31 federal buildings in total have been treated for bed bugs in the last year. While 25 of those are located in Ottawa and the surrounding region, three more are in Toronto, two are in Hamilton, and one is in Waterloo.

Public Services and Procurement Canada told CBC News that all of these buildings did not have what would be considered a "high level infestation issue."

Contractors will also be required to inspect and possibly treat the vehicles and residences of government workers.

Canada's government buildings have already had a number of bad experiences with bed bug infestations. One located at 70 Crmazie Street in Gatineau had to be completely shut down due to the biting insects.

A second Gatineau federal office was found to have a major bed bug issue. In addition, there were also problems with mice, bats, and bad air quality.

Bed bug infestations can become a huge problem, as fully exterminating them can be difficult.

According to Pest Control Canada, bed bugs can live for a year without feeding, and females can lay 300 eggs at a time that hatch in just ten days.

According to a ranking by Orkin, Toronto has the worst bed bug problem in all of Canada, closely followed by Winnipeg, Vancouver, St. Johns, and Ottawa.

Bed bugs in a Canadian government building are keeping workers at home. Unfortunately, this isn't the first time critters have shown up in government buildings.

A government building located at 70 Crmazie Street in Gatineau is shut down all because of bed bugs found in the office. The shut down is for the rest of the week with only one floor actually remaining open to workers.

According to CTV News, the bed bugs were first found on one floor of the building last week. When a canine unit came in over the weekend, beg bugs were found on every floor in the building.

And this isn't the first time that government buildings in the area were impacted by bugs being found in them.

On October 4 an office just across the Ottawa river in the capital was found to have bed bugs in it. Then the next day it was reported that a kitchenette in the building would also be treated for cockroaches.

"Dealing with pests in this building is nothing new for us. Bed bugs were first reported and treated on the first floor of the building in March and April 2018," an employee of the bed bug and cockroach-infested building in Ottawa told CTV News.

A former employee also confirmed the pest problem on Twitter.

And another Canadian made the most of the news by turning into a funny joke.

Last year another government building was also shut down and fumigated because of spiders. Employees at the Shared Services Canada building were sent away from the office twice after spiders thought to be venomous were spotted on two different occasions.

The second time the spider was spotted was after the building was fumigated. Both times employees were told to work from home.

A spokesperson for the department told the CBC that the spider found wasn't actually the venomous spider it was originally thought to be.

People working in the Gatineau government building, which is the building for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada, are being told to work from home for the rest of the week or make arrangements to work somewhere else.

The one floor that remains open is the sixth floor where employees work with sensitive information and can't actually take their work home with them.

Hopefully, this is the last we hear of bugs infesting government buildings.

Cockroaches on the rise in Winnipeg | CTV News – CTV News Winnipeg

by admin ·

WINNIPEG -- When you turn off your lights for the night, keep an eye open as there may be some nocturnal creepy-crawlies settling into your home.

Poulin's Pest Control said Winnipeg is seeing a rise in cockroaches.

Entomologist Taz Stuart, the director of operations at Poulin's Pest Control, said back in 2017 they received about 1,700 calls for cockroaches. That nearly doubled in 2020, with the pest control company receiving around 3,400 calls for the nocturnal pests.

Stuart said they are on track to surpass that in 2021.

"It could be related to the pandemic, with people actually staying home," Stuart said. "There is lots more online ordering, maybe bringing in cockroaches in their home unknowingly on those items."

Stuart said cockroaches like unsanitary conditions, they like cardboard and are great hitchhikers meaning they may catch a ride into your home through incoming packages. He suggests opening packages outside before bringing them in.

He said if you want to find out if you have cockroaches in your home, wait until it gets dark and then turn off your lights.

"Wait a couple minutes, they'll start coming out of their hiding spaces and start looking for a water source or a food source," he said.

Stuart said while cockroaches are on the rise not just in Winnipeg but across North America another pest is seeing a decrease in the city. Poulin's Pest Control has been receiving fewer calls for bed bugs.

"Probably the reason is the pandemic, people aren't interacting with people, the bedbug problem is decreasing naturally," he said.

Stuart said there are products homeowners can get to deal with cockroaches, but if it is a larger infestation, he suggests calling in professionals to get rid of the unwanted house guests.

Thank philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The very wealthy industrialist from the late 19th century donated $55 million thats one-and-a-half billion in todays money to start 2,500 libraries across the world 1,600 of them in America.

The worlds biggest library is the Library of Congress, which has 168 million items.

The McAllen Public Library in McAllen, Texas is housed in a converted Walmart and may be the largest single-story library in the country it has its own auditorium.

The Haskell Library and Opera House sits directly on the border between the United States and Canada. You can walk in from Stanstead, Quebec and walk out into Derby Line, Vermont.

What do inmates check out of their prison libraries? Lots of paranormal romance novels, young adult titles and the Left Behind series.

Library books can get dirty everything from traces of cocaine, to the herpes virus to bed bugs have appeared on the pages.

At Marshs Library in Dublin, Ireland, visitors who wanted to read rare books in the 1800s were locked in cages until they were done reading.

A Yale University library once allowed stressed out students to borrow a therapy dog.

The highest fine ever paid for an overdue library book was $345.14 for the book Days and Deeds. A library patron checked it out in 1955 from the Kewanee Public Library in Illinois. In 2002, Emily Simms found a book of poetry her mother had taken from the Kewanee Public Library in Illinois in 1955 and apparently forgot all about it. Emily paid the overdue fine.

The Guinness World record for the most overdue library book is held by Robert Walpole, of England. Bob borrowed a book from the Sidney Sussex College in 1668. His descendants returned it in 1956 288 years later. There was no fine the library said it was just happy to get it back.
