Monday, 4. January 2010 12:27

Bed Bug Status, Global and US / NYCThe Global Bed bug Status

Globally Bedbug cases have been on the rise recently across the world. Prior to the mid-twentieth century, bedbugs were very common. According to a report by the UK Ministry of Health, in 1933 there were many areas where all the houses had some degree of bedbug infestation.Since the mid-1990s, reports of bedbug cases have been rising. Figures from one London borough show reported bedbug infestations doubling each year from 1995 to 2001. The rise in bedbug infestations has been hard to track because bedbugs are not an easily identifiable problem. Most of the reports are collected from pest-control companies, local authorities, and hotel chains. Therefore, the problem may be more severe than is currently believed. Keep Reading

Detect Bed Bugs Traveling Locations

Monday, 4. January 2010 9:44

Bug Bug Control, Detect Travel LocationBedbugs travel easily and quickly along pipes and boards, and their bodies are very flat, which allows them to hide in tiny crevices. In the daytime, they tend to stay out of the light, preferring to remain hidden in such places as mattress seams, mattress interiors, bed frames, nearby furniture, carpeting, baseboards, inner walls, tiny wood holes, or bedroom clutter. Bedbugs can be found on their own, but more often congregate in groups. Bedbugs are capable of travelling as far as 100 feet to feed, but usually remain close to the host in bedrooms or on sofas where people may sleep. Keep Reading

Where are Bed Bugs Found?

Bed Bug Control, where can they be found?

Where Do Bed Bugs Hide?

The physical attributes of the body of a bed bug allows it to be able to hide in many areas. Bed bugs do not always show up on the surface and it is hard to actually spot one. Their flattened bodies give them the privilege to hide in many cracks and crevices—they are actually very attracted to cracks and crevices which is a good place to start inspecting for bed bugs. For areas that are hard to it is better to use concentrate pesticides with a long residual time such as Fenvastar EcocapCyonara 9.7, Demand CS, or Suspend SC. These products absorb into the walls, cracks, and crevices and lasts up to three months with the exception of the Demand CS which lasts up to six months.

The most common place to find bed bugs would be in the bedroom or where humans generally sleep. A good starting place to search for them would be in cracks or crevices near the bed such as mattresses and box springs or bed frames. Although, it is crucial that mattresses or any furniture that is in constant contact with humans should be treated with non residual pesticides such as Bedlam. In the case of sensitive skin we recommend products such as Steri Fab or Rest Easy.

Why it’s hard to find bed bugs

Bed bugs are very tiny, flat, nocturnal, and agile. They find many cracks and crevices to hide in such as wall voids, electrical plug outlets pipe lines, box springs, mattresses, etc. For  It is recommended to use dust products such as Delta Dust or Drione Dust  for areas that are near electrical systems and around the perimeter of the infested room. This prevents any further infestations in other rooms and prevents and electrical damage as it is a dry product. The key to using a dust product is to apply a thin and even layer for the best results by using a duster such as the Bellow Bulb Duster.

Where to Find Bed Bugs

The best places to start looking for bed bugs are cracks and crevices near or around the food source. Bed bugs tend to stay out of the light which leads them to find such hiding spots in dark areas such as mattresses, bed frames, box springs, nearby furniture, carpeting, baseboards, inner walls, tiny wood holes, or bedroom clutter. Bed bugs are usually found in groupings near the host although they are known to be able to travel as far as 100 feet for a meal. Bed bugs seek refuge in cracks and crevices no matter where they may be—in hotels, cruise ship cabins, bedrooms, etc. It is crucial to inspect every fold and crease, crack and crevice, mattress linens, nightstands, even behind picture frames or anything hung up on the wall.

Use the Facts to an Advantage

We know that bed bugs are nocturnal and that they avoid light. Also, bed bugs mainly come out to feed about an hour before dawn when they are most active. A way to catch the bed bugs in the act to is turn on a light that may be conveniently located on the nightstand or have a flashlight ready an hour before dawn. You could sweep the bed bugs into a cup of water to drown, but keep in mind that they are very fast. Dispose of the dead bed bugs by flushing them down the toilet. Then we recommend that you treat and disinfect the bed or area that the bed bugs were spotted.

You could also look for egg cases, dark stains (that come from the blood they’ve consumed and exposed of), or shells of bed bugs that were shed (also known as exuviae). It is imperative to look at every crack and crevice possible when inspecting for bed bugs.

Bed Bugs Reproduction

Monday, 4. January 2010 9:33

Bed Bug Control, ReproductionHow Bed bug reproductions works

All Bed Bugs mate via a process termed traumatic insemination. Instead of inserting their genitalia into the female’s reproductive tract as is typical in copulation, makes instead pierce females with hypodermic genitlia and ejaculate into the body cavity. This form of mating is thought to have evolved as a way for makes to overcome females in terms of physical damage and increases risk of infection. To reduce these costs females have evolved internal and external ‘paragential’ structures collectively known as the ‘spermalege’. Some bedbugs species make use of a mating-plug, secreted by t he male upon withdrawal after bug fornication, effectively sealing the vaginal area of the female to protect against other males

Remarkably, in the genus Afrocimex both males and females possess functional external paragenitalia, and males have been found with copulatory scars and the ejaculate of other males in their haemolymph. There is a widespread misbelief that makes inseminated by other males will in turn pas the sperm of both themselves and their assailants onto females with whom they mate. While it is true that males are known to mate with and inject sperm into other males, there is however no evidence to suggest that this sperm ever fertilizes females inseminated by the victims of such acts.
