Bed Bugs a Problem? We Have You Covered!

March 12, 2020

The resurgence of the bed bugs has created significant concern in the pest management industry and in society overall. Controlling, let alone eradicating, this pest is extremely difficult, as bed bug resistance to insecticidal control measures to date is significant.

Since bed bugs are hitchhikers, it is not uncommon for an employee to transport bed bugs from their home to work. If you think you might have bed bugs in the work environment, immediate attention to the problem is required. Bed bugs can be very disruptive to a business and could lead to a shutdown of the site if not addressed immediately.


Although bed bugs can dine on any warm-blooded animal, they primarily dine on humans. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, but their bites can become red, itchy welts.


  • Vacuum suitcases after returning from vacation.
  • Check your bed sheets for tell-tale blood spots.
  • Consider bringing a large plastic trash bag to house your suitcase during hotel stays.
  • Carry a small flashlight to assist you with quick visual inspection.
  • Never bring second-hand furniture, especially mattresses and box springs, into a home without thoroughly examining for signs of a bed bug infestation. You might consider having a pest control professional inspect the furniture, as it is difficult to detect an infestation if you are untrained.
  • Regularly inspect areas where pets sleep for signs of bed bugs.
  • Seek professional pest control to address an infestation because bed bugs are elusive creatures.

Go Green With The Bug Blaster Inc!

Today we all want to do our part to protect the environment. This included looking at how the “green” movement can be applied to controlling unwanted pests. While most of us are familiar with the process of calling in a professional when we have unwanted pests living amongst us, most of us have not considered what our part is to prevent them from moving-in in the first place.

This is where the concept of Green Pest Control starts. Within the pest management industry this process is referred to as Green Pest Management (GPM). GPM extends way beyond how to control pests. When a pest control company states it uses GPM, they should follow the guidelines below:

  • Conserve energy in the office
  • Practice recycling and efficient waste management
  • Utilize efficient vehicle routing to reduce fuel usage
  • Make every possible effort to reduce environmental pollution

When it comes to providing services, GPM companies will encourage non-chemical steps to the management of a pest problem as a critical part of the process. This is often referred to as Integrated Pest Management.

There are several ways that you can help to control and reduce pest problems utilizing Integrated Pest Management. Think like a bug! Understanding a few basics about insect’s needs and behavior helps to control unwanted populations. Actually, insects have the same basic needs as humans do: food, water and shelter. Eliminating what insects need to survive can help create a pest-free environment in and around structures.

For advice or assistance in controlling pest problems, a pest management professional can be very valuable. Certain pest such as bedbugs, cockroaches, rodents and others are better left to a professional, as extensive knowledge, training and special equipment are often required to eradicate them. Please contact The Bug Blaster to find out how we can work together to provide effective GPM/Integrated Pest Management solutions for your home or business.
