Bug Bed on “I’m a Celebrity”

 Bugs in Bed Challenge on “I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here”

This past week on the “I’m a Celebrity” show, the blue team won the horrific “Beat the Bugs Challenge”, also known as the Bed Bug Challenge. Imagining your warm bed at home infested with bed bugs is bad enough, but these participants had to spend the night in beds within Perspex boxes with all kinds of jungle critters crawling around.

The team that spent the most time in the bed bug infested beds won the challenge. The blue team won with 35 hours and 56 minutes, while the orange team only had a total of 29 hours and 22 minutes. Maybe if the  orange team had bed bug protection, they could have stood a chance against the blue team.

This challenge kept many of the participants up all night and had many of them in tears. But then again who could sleep with so many bugs in bed? After watching that episode of the TV show, its not easy crawling into bed while hoping nothing else is crawling in. Sleep better with a bed bug mattress encasement that can keep the bed bugs out.

What are Bed Bug Mattress Encasements?

Bed Bug Mattress Encasements are mattress covers that restrict the movement of bed bugs to the outside of the encasement, preventing an infestation in the mattress and box spring. Securesleep.com offers scientifically-tested Bed Bug Mattress Encasements that are proven to stop the penetration of bed bugs in fabric, and prevent bed bugs from spreading. These mattress encasements can be used for preventative measures, or on mattresses that have or have had bed bug infestations.

What happens to bed bugs when a mattress encasement is used?

bed bug mattress encasementBed bugs are trapped between the mattress encasements and the mattress where they will eventually die from starvation. Adult bed bugs can live over a year without a blood meal, and nymphs (baby bed bugs) can survive for three months. Therefore, the performance of your encasement is very important to keep bed bugs inside (where they are trapped and can not reach you) or outside of your bed depending on when you encase your mattress.

Bed bugs and the law in New York City

Bed bug cases in New York have become a serious issue. There are many inquires on this matter, in regard to legalities. While we are not equipped to provide legal advice, we hope this discussion can help you to locate references to help you in your bedbug battle. These sources and references cover a range of topics including residential renbed bugs, new york, manhattan, brooklyn, bed bug, bedbugs, bedbug.comtals, actions that should be taken by tenants and address popular questions such as: Who should take care of the bed bug infestation? What are the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants under the New York State Multiple Dwelling Law, the New York City Housing Maintenance Code, New York Real Property Law and the New York City Health Code.

  • There are a series of concerns and questions regarding dwellings with a landlord/tenant relationship, including:
  • What are the practical remedies available to tenants when landlords refuse to help?
  • What if the infestation continues unabated for months and even years?
  • What about a tenant who wants to move out and break their lease?
  • Can I sue for bedbug damages?

How can I best compel my landlord to take action against the perceived source of the infestation within the building? What if that source is thought to be the apartment of an uncooperative tenant?

The policy perspective holds an interesting point of view, noting the apparent inadequacy of law provisions towards and management of bed bug infestations. When it comes to bed bugs, there are various factors that bring about complications.  Bed bugs easily spread between apartments, making it vital to inspect and identify other apartments that may be infested in order to eradicate the infestation. Detecting  bed bug infestations is difficult in cases of low-level infestation, so city housing inspectors may not even see the bed bugs, and therefore there would be no violation cited. Because eradicating bed bugs is so difficult, even skilled bed bug management practices may fail to fully exterminate the bugs. This is due to the fact that the tools and skills currently available are inadequate, because the preparation requirements placed on tenants may be difficult to comply with, and because new infestations may develop, so that even the landlord’s good faith efforts may still fail. The conventional wisdom is that bed bug infestations are extremely hard to get rid of, that they are regarded strictly as a job for professionals. Tenants are discouraged from trying to treat a case themselves, and it is even illegal for landlords who are not licensed pest control professional exterminators to apply certain bed bug treatments. Further, professional bed bug eradication is prohibitively expensive.

The best course of action when it comes to bed bugs is prevention, primarily in the form of mattress encasement’s and other various entomologist approved products.

Bed Bugs around the US

Bed bugs continue to be a growing problem. Possible reasons for the resurgence of bed bugs range from increased international travel, to the fact that methods for eliminating bed bugs have been changed. It is said that the best way to prevent bed bugs is to not let them in the house in the first place. This becomes a difficult solution to achieve because bed bugs are infesting every area we inhabit: our homes, movie theaters, stores, dressing rooms, and office buildings.

A survey conducted by the National Pest Management Association and the University of Kentucky says that 95% of 1,000 U.S and international pest management companies reported encountering bed bug infestations. This amount increased from what used to be 25% merely a decade ago.   Once bed bugs enter your home, the cost to eliminate them can be thousands of dollars. Missy Henriksen, spokeswoman for the National Pest Management Association, emphasizes that even though most people do not have bed bugs, it is more tormenting and exigent to get rid of them once they are present, rather than taking preliminary approaches in preparation.

Although many places can contain bed bugs, one of the most invasive and disturbing of all is your own bed. The best way to discover bed bugs is to inspect your sheets, mattress seams, and by use a flashlight to look under your headboard.

Bedbug bites are also a way of discovering that you may have bedbugs. Bed bugs are not known for transmitting disease, but may cause itching and red welts (while some people have no reaction at all). Bed bug cases have also been known to take an emotional and mental toll on people.
