The Unlikely Places You’ll Find Bed Bugs
Are there bed bugs in your laptop or crawling along your children’s toys? Too few Americans realize that it is more than possible to find bed bugs on or in solid objects, and not just on furniture. What is a classic case of this happening, and how can home and business owners determine if their things are riddled with bed bugs?
Michigan Library Closes Permanently, Thanks To Bed Bugs
“Mayor Jim Fouts said an insect resembling a bedbug was discovered at the Miller Branch last Saturday by a librarian,” Detroit Free Press writes. “The librarian told Fouts that a patron reported a man, who was sitting next to her in the library, had visible bugs crawling all over his body.” That particular branch of the library closed — for good — as of Friday, June 13. Officials are exploring bed bug thermal remediation services and/or non-toxic bed bug treatments to eliminate any infestations on library books and furniture. After being serviced with bed bug heat treatment equipment, staff will determine whether objects are safe to go back into circulation at some of the library’s other locations.
Are There Bed Bugs In Your Home?
Are there bed bugs in your home? Have they worked their way into the nooks and crannies of your laptop? There are several telltale signs of a bed bug infestation. Know how to recognize them, and when it’s time for heat remediation for bed bugs.
Bed bugs in furnishings or crawling along your books will leave exoskeletons and, sometimes, even bright red blood splotches. Small black dots, or bed bug droppings, are a common sign as well. Some homeowners may also notice a musky and/or sweet smell.
Don’t let bed bug infestations get out of hand. Know the signs and seek heat remediation for bed bugs before they spread to all of your things — including electronics and your favorite books.
