Bedbugs Are Back in New York City! The explosion of bedbugs can be attributed to several factors, including the great increase in travelers who unwittingly transport the bedbugs in their suitcases and personal belongings. Bedbug eggs are sticky, and can easily cling to clothes, shoes and even skin. Other factors include the elimination of DDT from the approved chemicals list and genetic changes in the bug itself that have made them more immune to those chemicals that are approved. While the problem of bedbugs was all but eradicated in the 1950s, within the last five years, there has been a major re-infestation throughout the United States. The problem seems to be getting worse instead of getting better. In fact, reported cases have jumped to an unprecedented 500% increase. At Expert Exterminating, we have seen a tremendous upswing in bedbug calls, and so have been able to perfect bedbug remediation and other forms of pest control as the company to call when you need some of the best exterminating services in New York City!. From five-star hotels to college dorm rooms, bedbug infestation is growing at an alarmingly fast rate. In hotels, unsuspecting hotel guests stay a few days, sleep on a bedbug infested mattress and are bitten. A few days later, the guest moves out and inadvertently transports the bedbugs home in their suitcase. The next unsuspecting guest arrives to the hotel room, and the cycle that spreads the bedbugs continues. bedbugs are turning up in multi-unit dwellings including apartment buildings, college dormitories and nursing homes as well, because they are easily carried in second hand furniture, carpeting, clothing, mattresses and box springs. While poisonous insecticides such as DDT are banned from use, bedbugs seem to be developing immunities to the approved chemicals being used today. Whatever the reasons, bedbug infestation is again becoming a serious issue, and the only way to get rid of the problem is though vigilance and preventive measures. Entomologists and pest control specialists alike strongly recommend routine inspections of the home by a professional, and as a preventative measure, mattresses, box springs and pillows should be encased with a bedbug certified cover.
