Hi all: We are being blessed with amazingly warm weather for this time of year in Seattle. I hope it continues.
With that in mind, I wanted to share with you some bedbug prevention techniques. First of all, please understand bedbugs don't discriminate. We here at Paratex find bedbugs in 5 star hotels and hovels. Bedbugs started making an alarming comeback about 10 years ago. If there is one common symptom, it's the increased frequency of travel.
Bedbugs are travellers by nature. They will hitch a ride in someone's suitcase or bedding that has been purchased. There are some good prevention techniques that have been proven effective.
1) Avoid purchasing used bedding or furniture if at all possible.
2) If you're staying in a hotel , ask them about their bedbug prevention program.
3) If you feel like you may have a bedbug problem, call in the experts.
Right now bedbugs are flourishing. But with a sound prevention program that may include a bedbug sniffing canine, pesticides, heat or even fumigation, the problem can be eradicated. After all, who wants to be bitten by bedbugs! Thanks for reading! Have a great day!
