New York City Bed Bug Problem

Bed bugs (the tiny blood-sucking insects) have become an epidemic here in New York City. These nasty pests have invaded even the cleanest, most expensive apartments in neighborhoods around New York City. In NYC they have been found in homes, apartments, shelters, and even in 5 star hotels! So it is clear that bed bugs are both a serious concern at home as well as a serious travel concern. Because these tiny insects are difficult to spot and are great in numbers, it is important to employ a professional bed bug exterminator.


Bed bugs are spread very easily and can hitch a ride into your home on you, your family, or your pets. When traveling or staying out of your home for long periods of time, Pest Pro Exterminatingrecommends you take necessary precautions so that you do not experience an infestation.


Here are some good bed bug travel tips:

(1) Check bed bug reviews online
(2) Ask if the hotel you are staying at use bed bug free mattress encasements
(3) Use bed bug free luggage liners when you pack
(4) Look behind headboards, picture frames and electrical outlets for signs of bed bug activity
(5) When in the hotel, try not to leave any luggage or clothes on he floor so that bed bugs cannot climb into your stuff


Bed Bugs Exterminating
Bedbugs are of the insect family Cimicidae. They are oval in shape, flattish and grow to about the size of a small apple seed. They are light in colour and hard to detect. After they have fed on blood however, they will become dark red and easier to spot. Bedbugs come out at night and will feed on your blood for up to 5 minutes at a time! After the feeding frenzy, they will scurry back to whatever hiding space they came from: clothing, picture frames, creases in the mattress, in electronics, etc.


Left untreated, bed bugs can spread quickly in multi-dwelling housing. Both Housing and Health Codes require that property owners address infestations promptly. The surest strategies to keep bed bugs from spreading are prevention, early detection and rapid treatment.

A major problem we have in New York is a dense population without much space between us. This leaves us as a breeding ground for pesky insects such as Bed Bugs. Although an infestation is more common than not these days in the New York area, there is hope! Avoiding them isn’t always easy, and it could be even more difficult to exterminate them. Some people try to take the job on themselves, but it takes a professional to be sure they have removed all bed bugs and their eggs.

Bed bugs is a deceiving name because they can live in any crevice, not just bed folds. We’ve found them even hiding out in couches, drawers and even in photo frames! They like tight spaces (especially warm ones) so be sure if you are taking this on yourself, check EVERYWHERE, not just the beds in your home.
