|Bed Bug Traps Review|
The challenge of “getting rid of bed bugs” is being faced by individuals, private businesses, and governmental agencies everywhere. Most everyone has either had bed bugs or knows someone who has had problems with bed bugs. Hotels, nursing homes, and other businesses worry that a bed bug scandal will ruin their reputation. The Centers for Disease Control, the EPA, and state as well as local health departments have all confronted the problem of bed bug control. A great example is a publication by the New York City Department of Health entitled Preventing and Getting Rid of Bed Bugs Safely which outlines the procedures that a homeowner should follow to control bed bugs.
One of the highlights of the New York City publication is a pictorial illustration of the many bed bug hiding places that a typical home or apartment has. Often the first sign of a bed bug infestation is bed bug bites. However, it is better to be more proactive and to inspect the obvious hiding places. Another way of detecting bugs is to use bed bug traps and we recommend ClimbUp Interceptors and BuggyBeds. If bed bugs are found be aware that New York City officials do not recommend the use of insect foggers or bug bombs. Besides the inherent danger to the homeowner, foggers and bed bug bombs are simply not an effective means of bed bug control.
Getting Rid of Bed Bugs – New York City
A whole section of the NYC advisory is devoted to the subject of getting rid of bed bugs and includes very useful information on choosing a pest management professional or PMP. New York City has very stringent bed bug control regulations. Tenants should not hesitate to insist that bed bug infestations be eliminated. Once an eradication program has been completed, bed bug traps are a cheap and effective way of insuring that bed bugs do not return. The NYC Department of Health does not make any recommendations regarding bed bug monitors. To learn more about bed monitors (sometimes referred to as detectors) consult Bed Bug Traps Review.
Bed bugs are an unfortunate reality, especially in big cities and particularly in places where large masses of people congregate. Bed bugs are everywhere and they are expert hitchhikers. All kinds of places may harbor bed bugs and they can easily travel home with you. Having bed bugs in your home is not a source of shame. A bed bug infestation has nothing to do with cleanliness – anybody can get bed bugs. Fortunately, as stated in the New York City publication, “It is hard, but not impossible to get rid of bed bugs.” Get some peace of mind – use bed bug traps and you will rest easy each and every night!
