Rising Problems of Bed Bugs and Ways of Eradication
Posted by Tapout PestControl on April 19th, 2017
Children have been told countless times, “Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.” It is an enduring term that passes from generation to generation. Yet what happens when it isn’t true? “Sleep tight; the bed bugs may bite” just doesn’t carry the same soothing tone. Yet people throughout the United States, particularly in New Jersey, contend with this reality far too often, per Dr. Changlu Wang and his research team at Rutgers University.
After inspecting more than 2,300 low-income apartments in Paterson, Irvington, Bayonne, and Hackensack, researchers concluded that one in eight low-income apartments had bedbugs. Surprisingly, half of the residents didn’t even realize they had an infestation. Among the buildings examined, infestation rates wavered between 3.8 to 29.5 percent, with an average rate of 12.3 percent.
Yet the problem isn’t relegated to apartment complexes. In recent months, bedbugs have been found in the upholstery at the library’s, leading to the library’s closure. They have been discovered in hotels, motels, movie theaters, commercial work offices and homes as well. Why are bed bugs on the rise?
Though bed bugs were nearly non-existent in the United States up until several years ago, the pest have become resistant to pesticides, thereby causing an infestation. With the popularity of international travel, the bedbugs are catching a ride into the country as well. Many people view bedbug treatments as very costly and time consuming endeavor. They avoid pest control companies, often either trying to remove and throw everything away or move out of the location.
