Where Do Bed Bugs Come From? Bedbugs are most often found in hotels, hostels, shelters, and apartment complexes where lots of people come and go. Because bedbugs hide in small crevices, they can hitch a ride into your home on luggage, pets, furniture, clothing, boxes, and other objects. Bedbugs are found worldwide, but are most common in developing countries. Once rare in North America, they may be on the rise due, in part, to increases in international travel. So forewarned is well-warned!
Benson Pest Management of Maine will use hepta vacuuming which can eliminate some bed bugs when concentrated in a specific area. It also facilitates insecticide penetration of cracks and crevices. It's possible if you attempt to do this with an improper vacuum cleaner it also can be infested. De-cluttering of objects laying on the floor and furniture eliminates potential hiding places (especially items stored under the bed).
These can be used to salvage beds (or protect new beds) that may be infested. High quality bed bug-proof encasements will seal in bed bugs, which eventually die, and keep additional bed bugs out.
Suspected infested clothing must be washed on the hot cycle and then put in the dryer at the high setting for 30 minutes. Other non-washable objects can be put in the dryer at high for 30 minutes. Benson Pest Management can perform this procedure for you to guarantee bed bug extermination.
Certain items can be placed in plastic bags and placed in a high temperature environment, above 120°F. Heat-sensitive objects can be placed in an environment with a temperature below 32°F for several days. Benson Pest Management can perform these procedures for you to guarantee bed bug extermination.
The toughest life stage of bed bugs to kill is the egg stage. In direct spray tests only a very few products cause high mortality rate on the initial application.
