Work as a Team to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

Friday, 16. December 2011 11:36

It’s baffling now that I think about it. There are actually no preventive treatments for bed bugs. So much effort is put on getting rid of these pests, that nobody thought of how to prevent them from coming into a particular structure or home. However, it could be due to the fact that certain regulatory bodies and agencies in the community are not in favor of using pesticides for preventive purposes. KEEP READING

Are There Repellents for Bed Bugs?

Tuesday, 29. November 2011 10:06

The bed bug alert level is rising these days. In the past years, only homes were infested and considered places where bed bugs love to live. These days, however, apartments, motels and hotels, theaters, stores, schools, dorms, hospitals and even buses and trains are susceptible to bed bug infestations. How did this happen?

Well, one thing is that bed bugs will be carried anywhere through clothes, fabrics, luggage and baggage. People are asking us for any product that can prevent bed bug infestations. But as of the moment, experts on bed bugs are coming up with definitive answers. But even expert researchers are unable to come up with a preventative measure for bed bugs. KEEP READING

The Truth About Bed Bugs

Thursday, 3. November 2011 11:55

There are a lot of myths regarding bed bugs. One such myth is after a female bed bug becomes pregnant 5 times, she readily dies. At the university where I work with the experts on bed bugs, we have found out that this is not entirely true. A female bed bug can be inseminated and her eggs fertilized many times by many male bed bugs. The process of inseminating her is what we call as “traumatic insemination”. This happens when a male bed bug climbs onto a female bed bug and thrusts his proboscis (spear-like organ) into her abdomen. Thus, he has injected his sperms into her. We know for a fact that a female bed bug can lay eggs over and over again so long as she is alive (and no, it is not limited to 5 pregnancies only). A female bed bug’s normal life may last for two years. Imagine the number of eggs she could produce within these years!
