THE BEDBUG THREAT
The New York Metropolitan area has more bedbugs than any other city in the U.S., and the infestations are growing at an exponential rate.
How Bedbugs Get In Your Home or Office
Even though bedbugs can’t travel great distances on their own, they have mastered the art of hitching rides on people’s clothing, luggage and packages. Taking advantage of these free rides, bedbugs can move easily and quickly from place to place.
Their journey often begins in the upholstered seating found in public places such as theaters, movies, hotels, restaurants, taxis, airplanes, and trains. They can also be transported from gyms, spas, and health clubs via equipment, soiled clothing, and gym bags.
Another source is the moving van and packing materials used for your move. So, even if you do not have bedbugs in your current residence or office, you may inadvertently bring them to your new space.
Once in the home, bedbugs hide in mattresses, lying in wait to nourish themselves on your blood while you sleep. In the office, they can hide in clothing, purses, and briefcases and be transported unknowingly into your home.
How to Keep Them Out
Getting rid of a bedbug infestation is costly, time-consuming, and frustrating. Chemicals used by exterminators can be dangerous to people and pets, and sustained heat or cold treatments are expensive.
So if you are planning a move—and you do not have bedbugs—it’s critical to take the steps to ensure you do not inherit them from your mover or from the space you’ll be moving into.
