Bedbugs found to carry Infectious Diseases

Search for bedbug

It has been discovered that bed bugs can carry MRSA -- methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). They have been increasing in the news lately and are being found even in hospitals.

While bedbugs were nearly exterminated in North America in the mid-20th century, increased global travel has contributed to their newly found and infamous spreading , according to the CDC. Bedbugs can hide in clothing, in furniture, and are carried in luggage.

They are difficult to exterminate-but not impossible. Be sure to do your research before investing in products to get rid of them.

Bed Bugs making a comeback

Afraid Yucky Bed Bugs May Be Living Where You Sleep?

As if you needed something else to worry about, bedbugs, those pests from the old bedtime rhyme are making a comeback. More of a nuisance than a health hazard, they’re showing up to suck blood from people in hotels, college dorms, and hospitals. Take an informative look at bedbugs: what they are, where they lurk, and how to spot them before they get you.

A recent Forbes Article says they are also lurking in office spaces! The articles states "Earlier this year, Orkin, the Atlanta-based pest control company, conducted a national survey with the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) and found that 10% of bed bug reports were from commercial properties. At a bed bug conference last year, the Environmental Protection Agency said the incidence of infestation in the U.S. has tripled since 2005."

Bed bugs dine on you without waking you. You don't feel their  bite because they inject a numbing agent into your body, along with an anticoagulant to keep your blood flowing as they suck. The first sign of bedbugs may be itchy, red bites on the skin, usually on the arms or shoulders. Bedbugs tend to leave straight rows of bites.

This jam packed guide can offers the most effective, step-by-step methods to get rid of bed bugs. Complete with valuable prevention tips and Bonus Resource section not available anywhere else on the net.Click Here!

Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite!!
