The Kids Are Back From College – With Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs – you hear about them on the news all of the time. In fact, it wasn’t long ago that the news reported that bed bugs were literally everywhere including offices and college dorm rooms. Bed bugs are extremely pesky in that they cause damage to mattresses, couches, chairs, and anything else made of fabric. They feed on human and animal blood during the night. If you know nothing else about bed bugs, you probably know that you don’t want them in your home.

The College Equation
Keeping bed bugs out of your home may seebedbugs1m simple, until your college student arrives home for the summer. Bed bugs could very well burrow themselves into their bedding, clothes, and bags as they pack up their belongings to come home for summer vacation. So, the next question to ask is, ‘How do I prevent a bed bug infestation?’

A Few Obvious Steps
You can make your kids leave their bedding, laundry and bags outside until you wash them. You will need to wash them in hot water and dry on the hottest setting you have. If your child has brought a duffle bag of suitcase home, give it a good vacuuming, paying attention to the cracks and crevices. You may also want to check other items for signs of bed bugs, including laptops, textbooks, and more.

Professional Help
Of course, you can also call your Phoenix exterminator. Have your exterminator take a look at the situation to ensure there are no bed bugs present before you ever drag things into your home. If there are, then Phoenix pest control can help you to get rid of them before they ever enter your home. If, however, you have already brought in your kids things and then determined that there might be a bed bug problem, your Phoenix exterminator can check to see if indeed there is a problem and if it has spread to your things. If the answer is yes, then they can help you to get rid of the bed bugs before the problem becomes bigger.
