Bed Bug Elimination
Bed bugs are found in mattresses, furniture and clothing and they feed off animal and human blood. Insect scientists say bed bugs are showing up on a scale not seen since before World War II, due to the rise in international travel and the elimination of certain chemicals once used to fight them. High-traffic areas such as hotels, airplanes and cruise ships are especially prone to infestations.

Bed bugs have been found in the Empire State Building in 2010, along with theaters, clothing stores, office buildings, housing projects and apartments in New York. An outbreak brought an early end to a 4-H science camp on the campus of North Carolina Wesleyan College. And, in northern Kentucky, the Boone County Public Library brings in a dog four times a year to sniff out the pests. And the epidemic continues to grow.


In Ohio, the Department of Agriculture is seeking federal approval for its residents to use Propoxur, an industrial-strength pesticide, to attack bed bugs. But the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says it's concerned about children being exposed to Propoxur, because EPA research has found their nervous systems could be harmed. Hygienitech™ recommends that travelers check headboards and mattresses for bed bugs and the dark blood spots they leave behind.

Baggage should be stored far from the bed and clothing should be hung rather than placed in hotel drawers or left lying on hotel furniture. After a trip, people should vacuum suitcases and wash clothes in hot water. The EPA, which held a summit on the critters in 2010, warns consumers not to treat the problem on their own or use strong outdoor pesticides to get rid of bed bugs and to seek outside, trained professionals to properly eliminate the infestation. The kind of trained professionals you'll find with Hygienitech™.
