According to the EPA, These Top Industries Should Have Bed Bugs on the Mind

July 23, 2019

With the rising prevalence of bed bugs, we all need to be aware of bed bug prevention, but several industries are proving more vulnerable. If you work in the following trades make sure you and your employer are aware of the threat, read the compiled resources, and develop an action plan for both prevention and infestation.

 

Health Centers/Hospitals

With large numbers of people in and out of hospitals, many staying in beds, hospitals and other health care centers are prime targets for a bed bug invasion.

 

Retail

Bed bugs are excellent hitch hikers and retail shopping gives them plenty of opportunity to jump hosts. Thrift shops, where furniture and clothes are coming in and staying, are particularly bed bug susceptible.

 

Schools and Childcare

In K-12, backpacks, coats, and kids can all carry bed bugs from home to school and spread them to other students and teachers. At the university level, sharing of beds from semester to semester is an obvious cause of bed bug infestation.

 

Travel and Transportation

Hotels are hopefully very aware and highly trained on recognizing bed bugs, but transit workers may not be.

If you or your business faces a bed bug infestation, ask your current pest management company if they use heat to safely and effectively eliminate the problem. If your current provider doesn’t use heat, call TRS Extermination today. Our heat technology is effective against all forms of insect pests, but have found it to be equally effective against problem-causing allergens and bacteria as well. Give us a call at 513-604-6332. We are ready to help or consult with any unique applications! Your bed bugs will be dead. Guaranteed.

The public perception of bed bugs

December 8, 2019

So, how do these bugs get in your bed and everywhere else around your home? They don’t just appear one day! These bugs hitch hike or walk through the unusual places in search of a host— you and your family! Remember they are an insect that needs to feed to survive. It’s interesting how many people discover bed bugs in their home and say “I know where they came from”. In reality the introduction of a bed bug could have come from anywhere. Read more

A time for giving thanks

November 22, 2019

We are the recipients of gratitude and thanks every time we perform a bed bug heat treatment. The words our customers use— even the looks on their faces— clearly communicate the change we bring into their lives. It’s not fun walking in to someone’s home or business and experiencing their despair, panic, frustration, fear, or hopelessness. A bed bug infestation is disparaging! Good folks share their stories with us, and we hear their pain and disgust. We use heat to eradicate bed bugs because heat does more than just kill bed bugs. I believe in giving more than we take, and a heat treatment makes your life better. Read more
