Bed Bug Infestations are increasing on Long Island
Bed bugs (Cimex Lectularius) are found throughout the world. The number of bed bugs is significantly increasing all throughout North America, in particularly New York.
No one truly understands the reason behind the increasing number of bed bugs in North America. 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. The recent and sudden surge of bed bug infestations in both New York and Long Island has been the cause of anxiety and unrest within the general public. In addition to this unrest, the hotel industry has suffered from negative exposure and has resulted in the need to educate public health officials as well as pest control professionals on safeguarded and preventive measures.
Bed bugs are in the family cimicidae, small parasitic insects that feed exclusively on the blood of warm-blooded animals. It is important to be able to identify and distinguish species of bed bugs. For example, bat bugs (Cimex pilosellus) look similar to bed bugs, but control efforts must involve elimination of bats from a structure to be effective.
Over the past few years, there has been a compelling increase in the number of bed bug infestations in homes, hotels, apartments, colleges and universities as well as cruise ships. Being able to adapt to these conditions, it is no wonder that we are now able to recognize an infestation early and professional pest control companies such as A&C Pest Management are able to grasp a better hold on the situation to gain control and also provide preventative measures through the use of our K9 teams including Scout, the finest bed bugs dog detection on Long Island and thermal remediation (bed bugs heat treatment). In this way, infestations in communities should decline.
