Bed Bugs in Clothing – BadBedBugs.com

December 26th, 2016 by admin

Ive heard of bed bugs in clothing at second hand stores, Ive even heard of bed bugs in hospitals, but at Hollister, a store owned by Abercrombie & Fitch?

On Friday, CNN reported that Hollister clothing in the upscale SoHo neighborhood of New York, kept their doors shut to deal with bed bugs. Its reported that in South Street Seaport, another Abercrombie & Fitch clothing store was closed for a time to deal with an infestation of their own.

So how does a clothing store end up with bed bugs?

Its easy, people come to New York, spend the night at an infested hotel, then bring them into the clothing store. Check out this video of a upscale New York hotel reported to be infested and how some smart shoppers spotted it before it was too late! Wow, that looks like a large infestation that should have never been allowed to get that big!.

According to the 2015 bugs without borders survey by the University of Kentucky and NPMA, Bed bugs infestations are on the rise! 75% of the pest control companies survived stated their business grew from the previous year!

Dirty homes, clutter, people who are not clean are the cause of bed bugs, or so people believe this is NOT the case! Imagine you buy a shirt from a department store that unbeknown to you, have bed bugs in the clothing; you take the shirt home end up with an infestation. Imagine how would you feel if they found out you had bed bugs? 500% is only those infestations that have been reported and there are many, many more that go unreported!

As for Hollister, they have asked the City to help come up with a solution to make sure their customers dont find bed bugs in clothing and doing everything within their power to make sure this never happens again.

Moral of the story: When you buy clothing from a department store, no matter how reputable they are, make sure you vigorously shake out the merchandise BEFORE you bring it into your home (or car for that matter!).

Carpet Beetles VS. Bed Bugs (happy ending) – Bedbugger.com

December 23rd, 2016 by admin

I just wanted to share some of the information I learned in my bug battle, in case it should be helpful to anyone. Below you will find info about carpet beetle “bites” (allergic reaction), BB and CB treatments as explained by Orkin, and how our PCO diagnosed us with CBs.

Mysterious Bites: Several months ago I started getting bites at night that I was sure were caused by a spider. Large, itchy, but with a burning sensation that told me they weren’t mosquito bites. It started with the occasional bite, then I started getting GROUPS of bites that were often in a line, or a C shape. They were always on my legs, and usually on just one leg, which I think must be the side I was sleeping on. Here’s the strange part, though–while I looked like I had the chicken pox from the waist down, my husband had NO bites at all!! At one point I had about 40 distinct red welts, some mushed together. (Please let me know if you would like pictures of these bites; I will try to post them.)

I cleaned and vacuumed everything in the room and changed the sheets, but the next morning I still had a few bites. I went to the internet, and found that this was NOT the work of a spider, but possibly bed bugs. (The bites looked very similar to mine.) At this point I started freaking out, and my husband and I moved into the guest room. We quarantined the bedroom after thoroughly cleaning and spraying everything (flea/BB spray from Home Depot), but found no evidence of ANY bugs. Meanwhile, in the guest room I started getting bites.

After more research: I realized it was VITAL to find out what we were dealing with, and that BBs are a serious problem. I contacted Orkin for an inspection. I would recommend this to ANYONE that suspects they have BBs or CBs, as the treatments are very different. It was $130, and worth every penny for our peace of mind.

According to Orkin it takes MONTHS of extremely thorough full-house treatments to be sure that BBs are gone, because new ones hatch every 10 days or so. The whole company shows up at your house and they go over every square inch with steam and/or spray. This is NOT something you want to treat with home remedies or a few cans of spray. I was prepared for the worst.

The verdict: Here was the key to our diagnosis: Our PCO suspected Carpet Beetles instead of BBs due to the fact that I was getting the “bites” and my husband was not. Some people are allergic to CBs and some are not. She says that EVERYONE is allergic to BBs to some degree, so we would both have the bites. She looked at pictures of the bites, and after much searching she found a few dead carpet beetles in the guest room (where I hadn’t cleaned yet). And no BBs.

Supposedly the CBs like to be near you when you are sleeping because of the CO2 gas you exhale, and they are very shy little guys, so they are hard to find. They Don’t bite, but the larvae have prickly little hairs that cause a reaction in some people that looks very much like BB bites. Also, they only come out in the wee hours of the morning (same as BBs). They really aren’t associated with carpets, as most of them are made of synthetic fibers these days. They eat natural fibers, like wool. Adults look kind of like tiny yellow and black ladybugs.

I can’t explain the relief in knowing we only had these friendly little guys wandering around. They weren’t biting me at all. I found that an organic bug repellent kept them away at night, even just a little on my sheets. Finally, I am able to sleep without anxiety. My husband signed up for a treatment plan, but we have not started it yet, as the prep list is VERY detailed. I have steam-cleaned the carpets and haven’t had any bites since I started using the repellent. In hindsight, I probably would have held off on the plan for CBs, or at least explored some “greener” options. (I picked Orkin because they were the only place in our area that seemed to have solid experience with BBs.)

The CB treatment plan (as it reads on my contract) includes 6 treatments (every other month for a year) at $78 each. Plus the initial service (inspection) of $130, is $598. You can request info about the chemicals, but it is not on the contract. It is also effective on ants, rats, and some other pests. It sounds like it is a powder that they dust around the baseboards and other areas. Supposedly it won’t hurt pets or kids. Among other things, the prep list includes taking everything out of ALL your drawers, kitchen cabinets, closets, etc. and putting it in plastic bags.

To anyone who is dealing with CBs or BBs, please call a PCO that has experience with BB and get an inspection ASAP. Every day counts. Once you know what you are dealing with, you can decide how to proceed. Good luck in the battle, we are behind you!!

Think you have bed bugs? Some dos and donts

December 19th, 2016 by admin

If you think you may have bed bugs, these are the essential dos and donts. Make sure you also look at the photos of bed bugs (and signs of bed bugs) and photos of bed bug bites, and the FAQ on detecting whether your problem is bed bugs, or something else. If you suspect there are bed bugs where you sleep, dont begin sleeping in another bed, on the sofa. Do not go to stay with someone else. The bugs may follow you to your guest room or sofa, and then it will be much harder to get rid of them. They may hitch a ride to your relatives home, and you can cause them to become infested. (All of these situations have happened to Bedbuggers we know.) Also, staying outside of your home means the bugs may become dormant. Were told they may live without feeding for up to 18 months. When you come back, they can begin biting you again. So staying in your home during treatment, and sleeping in your usual bed, is the way to kill bed bugs. Read our FAQs and sleep there while youre getting a Pest Control Operator (PCO) to treat your home. Once you are being treated, you must remain in the bedyou are the bait, attracting bugs to the poison and their deaths. If you isolate the bed, they need not bite you. (The FAQ on isolating the bed talks about the pros and cons of doing that).

Do save any bed bugs you find. Do not part with these you may need to show them to landlords, pest control professionals, and so on. Entomologists at colleges or science museums in your town may identify these, and a pest control company can too. Pick it up with clear packing tape, and tape it to an index card. Or put it in a clear sealed ziplock or jar in the freezer. Dont assume youll see lots of them, some people dont.

Do rule out other possible conditions, like folliculitis, scabies, and bites from other insects. Suspected bed bug bites sometimes turn out to be one of these other conditions. Doctors cannot diagnose bed bug bites with any certainty. The FAQs may help. Be warned, though, that many of us are told by doctors that we do or do not have bed bugs, and later find they are wrong.

Dont assume you are the only one being bitten. Remember that some people do not react to bed bug bites at all. Bed bug bites are an allergic reaction, and reactions vary from nothing to serious allergic reactions. Research released in 2010 by Dr. Michael Potter suggests 70% of people do react, and 30% of people do not react to bed bug bites.

Dont start throwing your bed and other furniture out. As per the FAQs, you can cover and isolate the bed. (You may wish to wait until a PCO has started treating before covering the mattress in an encasement.) Most furniture, including mattresses and sofas, can be treated by a PCO, and you can ask the PCO if throwing them out is necessary. It usually isnt necessary or recommended because tossing furniture and other items out can just lead to spreading bed bugs as well as emptying your home of furnishings. If there is a good reason to get rid of something, your pest management professional can help you do it safely, so as not to spread the bugs around your home or building, and so that others do not pick up infested items.

Dont start buying a load of chemicals and treating yourself. We have FAQs about choosing a good pest control firm and about why doing your own pest control in lieu of a PCO is not a good idea. Yes, sometimes supplementing a PCOs work makes sense, but only if they are fully on board with what youre doing. Remember, pesticides have different qualities (repellents, contact killers, residual killers, growth regulators, etc.) Bed bugs are probably the most complicated pests youve ever encountered at home. If you start spraying pesticides, you may disperse the bugs, and the professionals may have trouble treating them. You may spread them around your home. Get good professional help and follow instructions. Some pros wont treat a home if you have already done so.

Do not, absolutely do not release a fogger or bug bomb. Do not allow your landlord to do so. Do not allow a so-called exterminator to do so. Bug bombs / foggers do not work for bed bugs, and in fact, will spread them. Your problem will be magnified. Trust me!

Dont start bagging everything you own. With the exception of washed and dried clothing (according to specific instructions your PCO gives you), do not seal up everything you own in bags. Some PCOs will want you to inspect, vacuum, and seal all your possessions in bags. Most wont. Following their advice is crucial, since they know what theyre using on your problem. If you decide to bag things, you may be sealing away bed bugs and this is only a way of dealing with the problem if you put these items in storage for 18 months, unopened. Instead, most PCOs will vigorously fight your problem, and bed bugs will be attracted out of your possessions and towards poisons which will kill them. We have a FAQ on this also: How do I prepare for pest control treatment? Should I put everything in bags?

Do start dealing with your clothing and linens if the PCO requires this. Though you should not simply seal your possessions in bags (as above), it is probably a good idea to start working on clothing and bedding, if the PCO instructs you to do this. Note that some reputable pest control operators do not require most clients to treat all their clothing and linens. If your PCO does not require it, then I would skip it. You should take clothing and other items, wash on hot and and dry them on hot. Remember, driers vary as to their strength and how long they take with what size of load. Dont stuff the machines. My personal method is that items should at least be dried on hot for 20 minutes after they appear to be fully dry and very hot. Note that if you start with clean items, you only need to dry them on hot: this is a huge savings to time and energy. Starting with clean, dry items, running the hot dryer for 20 minutes should suffice. (You PCO may not be aware of research proving that a hot dryer alone is enough.) Keep in mind that pillows, comforters, down coats, and other thick items may take longer to dry. Heres the key: after washing and drying, bag items in sealed, airtight bags, and do not remove them until use. Our FAQs give more explicit suggestions. Dry cleaning is theoretically a bed bug killer, but impractical since most dry cleaners may not be equipped to deal with bed bugs, and you have to disclose that the items have been exposed to bed bugs.

Dont assume bed bugs are only in your bed. While bed frames and mattresses and headboards are the most likely location for bed bugs, they can and do often hide out in sofas and other soft furniture, electrical sockets (behind plates), light fixtures, baseboards, floor crevices, and other crevices in the bedroom and living room. Bed bugs are occasionally found in kitchens and bathrooms. This should not make you panic: most cases, especially smaller ones, are quite concentrated, usually 10-20 feet from where people sleep (or where they sit for extended periods). However, if a PCO tells you bed bugs are not found in living rooms, realize that many Bedbuggers have infested sofas, computer chairs, and so on. Dont believe that bed bugs only bite at night. They prefer a sleeping, stationary host who is fast asleep. But if theyre hungry, theyll take what they can get. You can be bitten while in a chair, awake.

Once you get a PCO treating your place, dont assume this will be solved overnight. If your PCO treats and you are still being bitten, this is normal. The bites should decrease and eventually disappear. If you see bed bugs or are bitten, do have another treatment about two weeks after the first. Do insist the PCO repeat treatment every two weeks until you see no new signs of bed bugs (like bed bug feces stains in the bed). Do not assume youve got a bad PCO because it takes three treatments to solve your problem. This, unfortunately, is common, even if you follow all the advice. However, do ask questions, from the first treatment on, and take notes: what is the PCO using? What does each substance do? Make a note of where each substance is applied, and how long the process takes. If a few treatments go by and you are suspicious, post a question in our forums with these details experienced Bedbuggers and reputable PCOs read this site and may be able to offer advice as to whether youre getting good service or not. Stay on top of whats happening, but be honest with the PCO about what youre doing, and ask what you can do to support treatment. If they are good, they will welcome your involvement. Vacuuming every day in some cases is a good idea, in others, it may sabotage the work of certain substances left down to kill bed bugs. The same is true of bagging everything you own, as above. Never assume that you should do what someone online is doing, since they may be working with a different pest control protocol.

Do use bed bug monitors to try and determine if bed bugs are present initially and after treatment. We have a FAQ on bed bug monitors. The beenfit to monitors is that youre more likely to catch a sample or see signs if you are using monitors.

Think you have bed bugs? Some dos and donts

Bed bug infestation – Wikipedia

December 14th, 2016 by admin

A bed bug can individually and collectively cause a number of health effects including skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms.[1] Bed bug bites or cimicosis may lead to a range of skin manifestations from no visible effects to prominent blisters.[2]:446 Diagnosis involves both finding bed bugs and the occurrence of compatible symptoms.[1] Treatment involves the elimination of the insect but is otherwise symptomatic.[1]

Because infestation of human habitats has been on the increase in developed countries, bed bug bites and related conditions have been on the rise as well, since the 1980s1990s.[3][4] The exact causes of this resurgence remain unclear; it is variously ascribed to greater foreign travel, more frequent exchange of second-hand furnishings among homes, a greater focus on control of other pests resulting in neglect of bed bug countermeasures, and increasing resistance to pesticides.[4][5] Bed bugs have been known human parasites for thousands of years.[3]

Individual responses to bites vary, ranging from no visible effect (in about 2070%),[1][3] to small macular spots, to prominent wheals and bullae formations along with intense itching that may last several days.[1] The bites often occur in a line. A central hemorrhagic spot may also occur due to the release of anticoagulants in the saliva.[4]

Symptoms may not appear until some days after the bites have occurred.[1] Reactions often become more brisk after multiple bites due to possible sensitization to the salivary proteins of the bed bug.[3] The skin reaction usually occurs in the area of the bite which is most commonly the arms, shoulders and legs as they are more frequently exposed at night.[1] Numerous bites may lead to an erythematous rash or urticaria.[1]

Serious infestations and chronic attacks can cause anxiety, stress, and insomnia.[1] Development of refractory delusional parasitosis is possible, as a person develops an overwhelming obsession with bed bugs.[6]

A number of other symptoms may occur from either the bite of the bed bugs or from their exposure. Anaphylaxis from the injection of serum and other nonspecific proteins has been rarely documented.[1][7] Due to each bite taking a tiny amount of blood, chronic or severe infestation may lead to anemia.[1]Bacterial skin infection may occur due to skin break down from scratching.[1][8] Systemic poisoning may occur if the bites are numerous.[9] Exposure to bed bugs may trigger an asthma attack via the effects of airborne allergens although evidence of this association is limited.[1] There is no evidence that bed bugs transmit infectious diseases[1] even though they appear physically capable of carrying pathogens and this possibility has been investigated.[1][3] The bite itself may be painful thus resulting in poor sleep and worse work performance.[1]

Bed bug bites are caused by bed bugs primarily of two species Cimex lectularius (the common bed bug) and Cimex hemipterus.[3]Infestation is rarely due to a lack of hygiene.[10] These insects feed exclusively on blood and may survive a year without eating.[3] They are attracted by body warmth and carbon dioxide.[4] Transfer to new places is usually in the personal effects of the human they feed upon.[3]

Dwellings can become infested with bed bugs in a variety of ways, such as:

A definitive diagnosis of health effects due to bed bugs requires a search for and finding of the insect in the sleeping environment as symptoms are not sufficiently specific.[1] Other possible conditions with which these conditions can be confused include scabies, allergic reactions, mosquito bites, spider bites, chicken pox and bacterial skin infections.[1] Bed bugs classically form a line of bites colloquially referred to as “breakfast, lunch, and dinner” and rarely feed in the armpit or behind the knee which may help differentiate it from other biting insects.[4] If the number in a house is large a pungent sweet odor may be described.[4]

Treatment requires keeping the person from being repeatedly bitten and possible symptomatic use of antihistamines and corticosteroids (either topically or systemically).[1] There however is no evidence that medications improve outcomes and symptoms usually resolve without treatment in 12 weeks.[3][4]

Avoiding repeated bites can be difficult, since it usually requires eradicating bed bugs from a home or workplace; eradication frequently requires a combination of pesticide and non pesticide approaches.[3] Pesticides that have historically been found to be effective include pyrethroids, dichlorvos and malathion.[4] Resistance to pesticides has increased significantly over time and there are concerns of negative health effects from their usage.[3] Mechanical approaches such as vacuuming up the insects and heat treating or wrapping mattresses have been recommended.[3]

Bed bugs occur around the world.[15] Rates of infestations in developed countries, while decreasing from the 1930s to the 1980s, have increased dramatically since the 1980s.[3][4][15] Previous to this they were common in the developing world but rare in the developed world.[4] The increase in the developed world may have been caused by increased international travel, resistance to insecticides, and the use of new pest-control methods that do not affect bed bugs.[5][16] The fall in bed bug populations after the 1930s in the developed world is believed to be partly due to the usage of DDT to kill cockroaches.[17] The invention of the vacuum cleaner and simplification of furniture design may have also played a role.[17] Others believe it might simply be the cyclical nature of the organism.[18]

Bed bugs have been known to be a human parasite for thousands of years and many different methods have been attempted to deal with them.[3]

Plants traditionally used as bed bug repellents include black cohosh (Actaea racemosa), Pseudarthria hookeri, and Laggera alata (Chinese yngmo co | ), though information about their effectiveness is lacking.[19]Eucalyptus saligna oil was reported by some Zairean researchers to kill bed bugs, among other insects.[20][21]

In the 18th century, turpentine was used in combination with henna (Lawsonia inermis) flowers and alcohol, as an insecticide that also reputedly killed bed bug eggs.[22]

Other items that were believed to kill bed bugs in the early 19th century include “infused oil of Melolontha vulgaris” (presumably a kind of cockchafer), fly agaric (Amanita muscaria), Actaea spp. (e.g. black cohosh), tobacco, “heated oil of Terebinthina” (i.e. true turpentine), wild mint (Mentha arvensis), narrow-leaved pepperwort (Lepidium ruderale), Myrica spp. (e.g. bayberry), Robert Geranium (Geranium robertianum), bugbane (Cimicifuga spp.), “herb and seeds of Cannabis”, “Opulus” berries (possibly a kind of maple, or European cranberrybush), masked hunter bugs (Reduvius personatus), “and many others.”[23] In the mid-19th century, smoke from peat fires was recommended.[24]

The use of black pepper to repel bed bugs is attested in George Orwell’s 1933 non-fiction book Down and Out in Paris and London.

Dusts have been used to ward off insects from grain storage for centuries, including “plant ash, lime, dolomite, certain types of soil, and diatomaceous earth (DE) or Kieselguhr”.[25] Of these, diatomaceous earth in particular has seen a revival as a non-toxic (when in amorphous form) residual pesticide for bed bug abatement. Insects exposed to diatomaceous earth may take several days to die.[25]

Basket-work panels were put around beds and shaken out in the morning, in the UK and in France in the 19th century. Scattering leaves of plants with microscopic hooked hairs around a bed at night, then sweeping them up in the morning and burning them, was a technique reportedly used in Southern Rhodesia and in the Balkans.[26]

The rise in infestations has been hard to track because bed bugs are not an easily identifiable problem. Most of the reports are collected from pest-control companies, local authorities, and hotel chains.[27] Therefore, the problem may be more severe than is currently believed.[28]

Bed bugs are an increasing cause for litigation.[29] Courts have, in some cases, exacted large punitive damage judgments on some hotels.[30][31][32] Many of Manhattan’s Upper East Side home owners have been afflicted, but they tend to be silent publicly in order not to ruin their property values and be seen as suffering a blight typically associated with the lower classes.[33]

In a recent report from the Health and Human Services Department, the bed bug population has increased 500% since 2009. They were nearly eradicated in the 80s and 90s due to the use of DDT and other insecticides. However, after DDT was removed from the environment they started to resurface. With worldwide travel so common place its easy to see why bedbugs have become the newest globetrotting pest.

The presence of these vermin has nothing to do with cleanliness or hygiene. You may have won the house keeper of the century award or maybe you vacuum twice a year. Bed bugs dont discriminate. These insects hitch rides in luggage, clothing, and shipping boxes and anywhere they can find the right surroundings. Many property and business owners are mortified to find out, usually the hard way; they have a bed bug infestation and are willing to go to any lengths to exterminate them. The only redeeming quality these retched bugs have is they do not spread disease; other than a really bad case of the goose bumps.

Here at EcologyEP in New York, we know all too well the embarrassment of having bedbugs in your home, rental property or commercial building. We also know there is nothing to be humiliated about but, we understand you just want to get rid of them. Unlike other pest extermination companies, we are discreet. Our employees wear nothing to indicate they are pest control professionals and we drive unmarked vehicles to avoid any uncomfortable questions as to why an exterminator is in the building.

We have a very unique way of detecting bed bugs. We have a K-9 search unit. Mans best friend has been used in drug and bomb detection along with search and rescue missions. Dogs have a sense of smell that is unequaled in the animal kingdom. Our K-9 detection co-worker, Sid is specially trained to detect bed bugs with 95% accuracy.

In these days of Going Green, we may use a natural method of pet control for your situation. The equipment we use is Cryonite, a poison free pest control system. After Sid detects a bedbug infestation we can determine whether pesticides will be necessary for your residence or place of employment.

If you live in or your commercial property is in the NYC area, Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn; please call 718.748.2444 for free estimates and up to a 30 day guarantee on our work. If after 30 days of your initial treatment the problem persists we will retreat the area to rectify the issue at no extra charge. We will work with your schedule to cause the least disruption in any daily routines. We have many answers to your questions on our blog or our website http://www.ecologyenvironmentalprofessionals.com/residential-services.html. Bed bugs are like mosquitoes, rodents and cockroaches, they may be a fact of life but you dont have to live with them. Call 718.748.2444 and let us help you today.

Times Square location – Beware of bed bugs …

September 7th, 2016 by admin

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza Times Square April 10-14, 2007 for a business trip. I reserved a king non-smoking, but when I arrived at the hotel, I was put into a room that had a DOUBLE bed that FOLDED OUT OF THE WALL (room 2823). The room was teeny tiny and had adjoining rooms on each side. I could sit on the end of the bed and my knees would touch the television stand (and I am only 5’7″). The hotel had not turned on air conditioning yet (the hotel only turns it on during summer months) and the room was very warm. The window opened about 3 inches, but would not stay open so I had to prop it open with the guest services book.

So the room was small and hot and I could hear my neighbors conversation verbatim?? Okay, I can get over that, I am basically there just to sleep, right, and besides, this is on my company’s dime, not mine. Not as easy at it sounds…..

That first night, the bed was basically like sleeping on a box spring, hard and uncomfortable. And I noticed that my legs were really itchy!! I thought I was either having a reaction to the laundry detergent used on the sheets, or the soap products the hotel carries.

The next morning I requested that I be moved to a different room because I was so displeased with room 2823. I was told I would not be moved unitl the 3rd day because the hotel was full. Fine, I thought, I can stand one more night of hearing the shrill laughter of my neighbors at 2 a.m. and my legs itching like mad.

On the third morning, I was moved to room 2815. Just a few doors down the hall but a world of difference from room 2823!! I got a king size bed and much more room. And the room’s temperature was acceptable and there were no adjoinging rooms…hooray! I was much happier….But the itchy legs continued, and by this time, the itch had moved up to my stomach and arms.

On the morning of my departure, I was sitting on my bed putting on my shoes. I felt another bite and looked at my arm where I found a bug, similar in appearance to an appleseed, biting me. I smashed it and thought nothing more of it. I had never seen a bedbug, and besides, aren’t they just the lure of a childhood rhyme?? WRONG

The bites still continued when I got home and again, I found a stupid bug (just like the first one) on my leg. Now I was really perplexed as to why I had seen this same bug at the Crowne Plaza and now again on my leg. I did some reseach on the internet, low and behold, I had discovered BEDBUGS!!! Yes, freaking BEDBUGS traveled back to North Carolina with me.

I had never seen a bedbug in my life until my stay at the Crowne Plaza, and now they are making me and my home their own personal feeding trough. I am going to have to get an exterminator now and who knows what that is going to cost? I don’t, not yet anyway, but I bet it’s not going to be cheap.

Thanks a lot Crowne Plaza, for your univited Begbugs guests and my future extermination bill. BEWARE of rooms 2823 and 2815.

And by the way, I informed the hotel, they have not responded to my complaints. Also, a co-worker stayed in room 2723 (just below my original room, but her’s was a double, much larger and had only one adjoining room) and so far she has not been affected by bedbugs. We’re keeping our fingers crossed.

Can Dogs Carry Bed Bugs | Bed Bug Detection, Bed Bug Dog …

September 7th, 2016 by admin

As human beings, we seem to have a love/hate relationship with dogs and bed bugs. Thats because we love our dogs and hate the bed bugs. And the very last thing we want to do is see them together.

The question is, can dogs carry bed bugs? The simple answer is, yes, but it is important that you are aware of some simple facts to protect both yourself and your home.

Can dogs carry bed bugs into your house? They sure can. Although it is typically uncommon for bed bugs to make their way onto your pet while its outside after all, bed bugs are nocturnal and they dont particularly like fur for the safety of your pet and your family, you shouldnt disregard the possibility. Bed bugs arent smart enough to knowingly hitch a ride on your pet in order to gain entry into your home, but if your dog encounters another dog who has them or a patch of grass where the critters happen to be, theres a chance they might use your dog as a way of inadvertently being smuggled inside.

Are bed bugs harmful to your dog? Latching onto a dog is a bed bugs last resort. They dont want to climb through all that fur to get to some juicy skin they can siphon blood out of. If bed bugs do get on your dog and can get to the skin, however, they will treat your family pet in the same way they will treat you. Which means not very well, as they bite and suck blood until youre able to get rid of them. The good news is that, unlike other blood-sucking parasites, bed bugs do not carry disease. The good/bad news is that once a bed bug leaves your dog, it is more likely to find its way to you rather than back to your pet.

How do I treat my dog if he has bed bugs? Unfortunately, topical flea and tick medications that you apply to your dog will not kill bed bugs. What youll want to do is contact your veterinarian and let them know what youve discovered. He or she will tell you the best treatments available. For example, certain shampoos used to kill bed bugs on a dog are harmful to a cat, so a veterinarian will need to know if you have cats living in your home and how to avoid exposure.
