Freezing bedbugs

This isn’t cool: Freezing bedbugs may not kill them after all Researchers found the bed bugs have a high cold tolerance, beyond the normal freezing point 32 degrees F or 0 degrees C. They concluded that a minimum exposure of 80 hours at 3.2 degrees F (-16 degrees C) was needed to kill 100 percent of the bed bugs. Some bed bugs could survive short-term exposure to temps as low as -13 degrees F (-25 degrees C). Temperatures of -4 degrees F (-20 degrees C) could destroy them in 48 hours. The researchers suggested placing items in plastic bags and putting them into your freezer. This is not realistic or easy to do for most items in your home, so heat is going to be your best option.

Bed Bug Epidemic Discussed in Denver

Bed Bug Epidemic Discussed in Denver 500 of the industry’s leading Bed Bug professionals met in Denver, Colorado in the beginning of December, 2013. The big discussion question posed to all attendees was “Are we making progress?” The answer was yes and no.

Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) have also experienced success by refining training, policies and procedures and introducing new and innovative Bed Bug products. However, the cases of bed bug infestations remain the number 1 problem for many PMPs.

f you’re sleeping somewhere other than home, beware. Bedbug prevalence is on the rise, and hotels and motels are some of their favorite hangouts. These pesky critters can cause severe itching and welt-like bites, and it’s costly to get rid of them if they follow you home. What’s more, research suggests they can cause financial distress, anxiety, and social isolation. But no need to get depressed just yet. With these easy tips, you can cut your chances of critter trouble while on the road. 1. Head Straight for the Bathroom Before you check out your hotel room’s mini bar or oceanfront view, give it a thorough bedbug inspection — and until you’ve done that, stash your luggage in the loo. “Bedbugs are least likely to be found in the bathroom,” says Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association. “They don’t like the tile floors and there aren’t as many hiding places. They like to be closer to where people may be sleeping.” 2. Inspect the Bed Here’s how to check for a bedbug infestation: Pull back the linens and check all the way around and under the mattress and behind the headboard. Look for blood stains or small black dots that look like mold or ground pepper, says Christine Johnson, Ph.D., a behavioral ecologist in the American Museum of Natural History’s Division of Invertebrate Zoology in New York City. Check for the critters too. Bedbugs are about the size and shape of an apple seed, and you may find them hiding in corners or seams of the bedding. If you see any suspicious signs, alert the hotel staff immediately. 3. Check The Room Next, broaden your bedbug search to the area immediately surrounding the bed: behind picture frames, under the telephone and alarm clock, and even in books, says Johnson. Studies have shown that most bedbugs are found in or within 15 feet of a bed, but some may still be further away. Check in the cushions and seams of any couches or soft chairs and in the closet before putting your clothes away. 4. Keep Luggage Off the Ground Leaving suitcases and bags on the floor — or on a second spare...

Bed Bugs

Bed Bugs are the world’s greatest hitch-hikers, and can make themselves so flat they hide undetected in crevices and creases. They live on warm blood, inside buildings and thrive in warm temperatures. Bed bugs spend most of their time in hiding but come out to feed once every few days; feeding promotes molting and reproduction. After feeding at night, they then scurry under or between something. Bed Bugs can live without nourishment (blood) for over 1 year and have become highly resistant to pesticides. So they are extremely difficult to abolish. Bedbugs have become such an issue that there’s a dedicated site, bedbugregistry.com, where experiences are shared and hotels are named and shamed. (I’d take it with a grain of sea salt, as contributors are anonymous.) In New York there were 500 cases of bedbug infestation in the city (not just hotels) reported in 2004. That rose to 10,000 cases in 2009 and is still on the...
