Bed bugs are a very serious problem and are rapidly becoming epidemic in the United States! They are not a "sanitation" pest; but they do love cluttered areas because of the numerous places to hide. Bed bugs love hotels regardless of how expensive, cruise ships, dormitories, shelters and have even been reported in schools! Bed bugs feed on blood while their hosts sleep and hitchhike to one place to another on luggage, clothes, furniture and other mobile items. These parasites are brown to red in color and can range to barely visible to about an eighth or tenth of the size of a penny.

Here are some steps that you and your family can take to help prevent a bed bug infestation:

  • When possible replace wooden headboards and bed frames with metal ones. Although bed bugs can still hide and nest in metal, they are less likely to than wood.
  • Keep the bed bug protective covers provided by Bug Busters USA on your mattress and box spring. New mattresses and box springs should immediately be covered as well.
  • Always carefully inspect antiques and any second-hand furniture before bringing them into your home, even if they aren't upholstered.
  • Always wash and dry on high heat any second hand clothing or, when possible toys or other items before bringing them into your home.
  • When travelling, inspect the mattress and box spring you will be sleeping on. In addition to looking for the actual bed bugs, look for small brownish or reddish dots on the bed linens and mattresses. This is why most hotels use white sheets, if the hotels sheets are dark in color, this could be a red flag.
  • When travelling, do not put your luggage on the bed, this gives bed bugs a ride right into your. Use the metal luggage rack, which should also be kept away from not only the bed, but also the curtains, tables and wall hangings in the rooms. Don't forget to inspect your luggage when you return from trips before you bring them back into your home.
  • Have overnight guests to your home check/inspect their bags and luggage as well before placing them in their sleeping quarters.
  • Vacuum at least once a week, pay special attention to areas around beds and furniture posts.
  • Prevent bed bug harborage (hiding places) by keeping all areas free of excessive storage and clutter.

Tips for Spring More Tips

Wood to soil contact. Keep soil from touching wood to reduce pest access. If there must be wood to soil contact (on a porch or deck) use pressure-treated wood or material which is insect resistant. Eliminate hollow porch post and columns.

Ventilation and high moisture conditions. Eliminating damp conditions, increasing ventilation and replacing decayed wood, aids carpenter ant management and helps prevent future infestations by the ants and wood destroying fungi. This may include your cellar, crawl spaces or under dirt filled porches.

Flower and shrubbery beds. Adding crushed rock around the foundation instead of mulch will eliminate a food and harborage source for sow bugs, centipedes, millipedes and many other insects. Crushed rock is also a rodent and snake deterrent.

Leaking gutters and roof lines. Keep gutters and roof lines in good repair and free of debris to reduce wood rot. This reduces breeding areas for wood destroying insects. Satellite carpenter ant colonies are usually in areas of moisture damaged wood.

Openings at plumbing, electrical, and telephone line entrances into your home. Sealing openings around these entries reduces access for carpenter ants, stinging insects, and many occasional invaders.

Excessive plant cover around the foundation. Leaves and other debris under decks, in window wells, and behind bushes should be removed to eliminate decaying organic matter which may provide a food source or harborage for insects such as sow bugs, centipedes and millipedes.
