Bed Bug Exterminator Long Island
Bed Bug Infestations are Increasing on Long Island
The number of bed bugs (Cimex Lectularius) is significantly increasing all across North America, and throughout Long Island and New York. No one truly understands the reason behind the increasing number of bed. Over the past few years, there has been an alarming increase in the number of bed bug infestations in homes, hotels, apartments, colleges and universities as well as cruise ships. The common belief is that the increase of bed bugs is due to reduction in the use of urban pesticides, the more extensive world travel of different cultures, and the growing resiliency to pesticides.
What You Can Do to Prevent Bed Bugs
Brown, wingless and about a ¼” in diameter, bed bugs don’t just live in beds. Bed bugs are elusive and adaptable pests. They can be found in sofas and chair cushions, carpeting, furniture, behind electrical outlets and many other places around your home. When you return from a vacation or a business trip, you should check your clothing and bags for these tiny critters. Even better, take time to vacuum your luggage before you bring you bags into the house. If you think you may have brought home a bedbug, call us immediately as these are not the kind of pests you can control or kill yourself. That’s because bedbugs can live up to one year without eating and live in temperatures as low as 33F and as high as 122F.
