We feel like we have been talking about bedbugs often lately. Even though Fall is on his way here in Albany and the surrounding area, and the weather is starting to cool, people are often surprised to hear that bed bugs are not seasonal. They are highly adaptable and can be found in your home at any time of year.
The number of bed bug reports that we have been getting over the past month have simply skyrocketed. The reason for this is simple: during the summers more people are on vacation and are staying in hotels and traveling through airports. This type of travel puts people in more contact with foreign environments where bedbugs likely will be found.
Bed bugs are so small and they are highly skilled at hiding in tight spaces. They will hide in your personal belongings like your jacket, your luggage, or even any backpacks that you might be carrying. When you stay in hotels and are traveling, be sure to inspect your surroundings for any signs of small brown feces, transparent exoskeletons or any blood on sheets or furniture.
If you have identified a chance that bedbugs have gotten into your home, the first thing you need to do is do a thorough cleaning job of your house. Be sure to wash all of your clothing and bedding in hot water to kill any pests.
Remove any clutter from around your house and vacuum all of your floors. Check for any cracks in crevices around your floors and seal them up appropriately. It would be wise to in case your mattresses and pillows with special coverings to keep dust mites and bedbugs out.
