How To Keep Bed Bugs Out Of Your Las Vegas Home
If you don’t have a dirty home, you can’t get bed bugs, right? Wrong.
Many Las Vegas residents mistakenly believe that bed bugs only appear in dirty or unkempt homes, and not on clean residential properties. However, nothing could be further from the truth.
Bed bug infestations usually start when a hapless, unknowing victim gives a ‘ride’ to these hitchhiking creatures. Bed bugs are crafty creatures, and are often acquired by people during travel on a public venue, carried in on second-hand appliances, or hidden in thrift furniture items. Once bed bugs have made it home with you, they won’t need to do much: these pests can live and feed on a human host for years without breaking a sweat.
If you are concerned that bed bugs could be a problem for your home (hint: they are), you will need to consider prevention treatments and techniques for the busy traveling season.
Preventing Bed Bugs From Hopping Through Hot Spots
While bed bugs have an almost ubiquitous presence around the world, there are some steps you can take to reduce transmission or infestation while in hot spot areas. Refer to the tips below for bed bug advice that’s near pest-proof:
Don’t leave your luggage, backpack, or suitcase on the ground while traveling: store everything in an overhead compartment or wire rack.
When purchasing secondhand appliances and furniture items, inspect the object for signs of bed bug activity. Excrement stains, blood spatter, crushed exoskeletons, and (obviously) live bedbugs are all signs of a particularly bad infestation. Do not purchase any item that raises even one of these suspicious red flags.
Be sure to inspect hotel rooms and other lodgings for the signs of bed bug presence listed above. If you notice a strong, musky, or sweet odor with no explanation, change your rooming situation right away.
