Hudson Bed Bug Control
Are you ever tempted to stop at Mattress Galaxy on your lunch break to take a nap? What about just stopping at the first house you pass off of Stageline and snagging some z’s in whatever bed you find there? I’m guessing the answer to the first is no and the answer to the second is an emphatic and resounding no! As humans, civilized humans at least, we see the invasion of someone else’s sleeping quarters as highly inappropriate. If only Bed Bugs felt the same way. Since they do not, Hudson Bed Bug control is a matter to take seriously.
The Rise and Fall and Rise of Bed Bugs
Bed bugs have been with us since as far back as we can historically track. We know the ancient Egyptians had to deal with the blood-sucking parasites. We presume that the common bed bug evolved along with humans from a common ancestor from bat bugs from our cave-dwelling days.
Since then bed bugs have been with us throughout the ages up until we started soaking clothing, cribs, sheets, etc. with bed bug-killing chemicals. While this really knocked down the overall bed bug population several decades ago, it also spurred some adaptations in the surviving bed bugs that make them much more difficult to kill. Additionally, it was terrible for our human health to be spending half our living lives or better in direct contact with pesticides. Thanks to a move to protect the birds, we started protecting ourselves as well. Since then, bed bugs have been on a steady rise that has culminated in what feels like an explosion to those affected. The good news is it has led to significant advancements in Hudson Bed Bug control.
The Return of the Fall
“Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite” has become great advice and not just a silly rhyme. The effort to not let them bite has led to the development of bed bug control tools including:
- Heat remediation systems
- Pitfall traps
- Bed Bug Proof mattress encasements
- Bed Bug encasements for other furniture
- Cryogenic remediation systems
- Fungal treatments that target bed bugs specifically
- A wider array of chemical options to use in a safer manner than previously known
- Bed bug lures and traps
The most important ingredient in Hudson Bed Bug Control is monitoring and inspection. The earlier, the bed bugs are found, the quicker and simpler the situation can be resolved. Signs of bed bugs include:
- Adults – about the size and shape of a watermelon seed and red-brown in color
- Nymphs – smaller than adults and more elongated in shape
- Eggs – small off-white ovals
- Fecal droppings – similar in appearance and size to pepper flakes
- Blood Smears
By combining the right inspection and identification elements with the right control measures, Hudson Bed Bug control can be relatively quick and easy. It is important to remember that it is a combination of tools that will provide the long-term control.
