New England is one of several areas of the country experiencing an alarming increase in bed bug infestations, particularly in larger urban markets. Bed bug infestations were common before World War II, but with improvements in hygiene and the widespread use of the synthetic pesticide, DDT in the 1940s and 1950s, bed bugs practically vanished in the U.S. Now, they’re back with a vengeance.
The first step to understanding bed bugs is to learn the facts about these nocturnal creatures including identification, signs and habits.
Bed bugs and the problems they cause
Bed bugs are problematic for both commercial and residential customers. If not handled properly, bed bug infestations can be a public relations nightmare for companies and businesses, resulting in a damaged reputation, lost revenue, possible litigation and, in extreme cases, closure. Homeowners and renters also face a troubling battle with bed bug infestations that can take a physical and emotional toll and prove to be an expensive and frustrating problem to solve.
