Are You Prepared?
It's the beginning of a new month and we are that much closer to warmer temperatures (whenever those warmer temperatures do decide to finally stick around anyway!).
Are you ready for the warm spring and summer heat? Bed bugs are too. From what we know from the study of bed bug behaviors, we know that bed bug infestations happen much more frequently during the warmer months.
Why? Well, the answer is pretty simple - it’s based on the fact that they reproduce in larger numbers when the weather is warmer and speeds up their development. More bed bugs, even faster. Oh, Joy!
They Spread Faster During Peak Travel Summer Months
It really is no coincidence that bed bug infestations spread a bit faster during the summer months due to more people traveling for vacations, typically to warmer climates. A combination of cramped quarters on transportation, high turnover in hotels and resorts, people traveling from all over the world - it is no wonder that bed bug numbers get higher during the summer.
They Are Persistent and Tough to Get Rid Of
Due to the fact that bed bugs can squeeze themselves into some tight and dark spaces and not have to emerge for a few months for a meal, it makes them particularly tough to spot and get rid of. One round of treatment isn’t usually enough to be certain that all bed bugs are gone, which is why it’s always recommended to do a follow-up treatment for any bed bugs that have gone into hiding. This can be a long process, and even the best and well-intending transportation and lodging companies can struggle to make sure all pests are gone before new guests arrive.
Protect Your Belongings
To make sure you’re taking the necessary steps to stay safe from accidentally picking up bed bugs, be sure to thoroughly inspect your hotel room before bringing your luggage and other belongings into the room. Be sure to check all of the furniture, including any chairs, sofas, bed frames, bedside tables, bedding, mattress, and box spring.
You can also treat your luggage with a travel-friendly spray or use luggage encasements to help make sure you don’t bring these unwanted bed bugs home with you.
