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 real reason why we exterminate bed bugs

September 26, 2019

Some days the extermination business can be tough. Some folks call us and we are the bearer of bad news as we show them how extensive their infestations have become. We treat the homes and businesses of others and never hear back after our final inspection a couple of weeks later (by the way, that’s when your bed bug warranty begins... when we certify we killed them all!)... and we know we killed all their bed bugs. In that regard, not hearing from a client again is a good thing, and I hope to never hear from my clients again. However, if they do need us, we’re always ready to help with the same integrity and honesty we delivered on our previous visit. Read more
