Halloween is right around the corner. Is it Vampires or Bedbugs?

1103111520_0 The photo above is an example of a person that had a ‘severe’ bedbug infestation. Severe scarring and allergies to bites.     An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure-Benjamin Franklin   Truer words have never been spoken, especially if you have had the misfortune of dealing with bedbugs. They have been found in thrift stores, movie theaters, laundry mats, daycares, schools, cars and even on subways. They can hitch hike a ride anywhere. Luckily for us, there are things that we can do to prevent being infested with these little bloodsuckers.

If traveling, you should:

- Inspect your hotel room upon arrival.

- Look for live bugs, or evidence of bedbugs IE: Dried brown spots, molted skin, eggs, etc… – Inspect the mattress tufts, box springs and headboards. (Depending on the severity of infestation, they can also hide in curtain seams and rods themselves.) – Any evidence you find, you should immediately report it to the front desk, request another room entirely or ask for a refund. Most reputable hotels will honor this request. Returning home: – Immediately launder all clothing in hot soapy water and run through a hot dryer on a full cycle. – Inspect yourself for bites. Mosquito bites are usually randomly spread over the body, while bedbug bites are usually in cluster of at least 3 or more. If you are allergic, they may turn to large, red, painful and itchy welts. – Purchase quality mattress and box spring encasements. Cheaper ones tear easily and defeat the purpose.
