Bed Bugs in University of Nebraska Dorms

Recently, we reported about the University of Nebraska’s bed bug infestation. Well, they have dealt with the infestation, but at quite a hefty price! The cost to get rid of bed bugs at the University of Nebraska was estimated at over $300,000!

Getting rid of bed bugs in dorm rooms

Getting rid of bed bugs in dorm rooms, or anywhere, is a painstaking job. The University had 2 different pest control companies search room by room for the tiny critters.

One big challenge that the University faced was that of bed bug phobia or the social stigma that students faced in acknowledging that they had bedbugs in their dorm. Many students were afraid of admitting they have bed bugs; while other students admitted that they would be weary of “hanging out” with a student who had an infestation. Naturally, this causes a problem when searching for and eliminating bed bugs.

Preventing bed bugs in dorm rooms

The University of Nebraska has taken measures to warn students not to bring used furniture and mattresses back to the dorms – all in an effort to avoid future infestations. But is it enough? What about bed bugs in carpets and clothing? And, what if student’s simply can’t afford to heed that advice?We recommend that students, and even University’s, begin investing in bed bug mattress covers. In fact, in response to the recent bedbug outbreaks at college campuses across the US, Bedbug.com has created the scientifically engineered and bed bug proof smart buy for dorm rooms. This package deal saves student’s money by including the essentials for bed bug prevention!

Volunteers Work to Get Rid of Bed Bugs

A New Bed Bug Volunteering Project

In Kreta Ayer, Singapore a new volunteering program has been created – the Stop Pests Project. This projected two-month program, beginning on September 11, 2011, aims to help clean 150 bed bug infested houses on Block 51 – a main rental block in Kreta Ayer.

‘Stop Pests Project’ targets 150 bed bug infested homes

Many elderly and poor individuals, living in this area, are unable to afford getting rid of bed bugs in their houses and so they live alongside the blood-sucking critters. This Stop Pests Project has already racked up corporate investors and has taken public donations to help cover the estimated cost of $250,000.Bed bug infested mattress

The Stop Pest Project has employed an Origin Exterminators’ beagle to help locate the bed bugs within the many houses. This use of dogs to find bed bugs is a new practice that has been growing both within the United States and out. Once the bed bugs have been located, over 100 volunteers have begun packing up houses for extermination.

This two-month project is only a test run of what could be a huge campaign to help clean the city of infestations and perhaps prevent bed bugs in the future. In addition to increasing the number of houses targeted by this volunteer program, head of the Stop Pest Project, Dr. Neo hopes to eventually have enough funding to replace the infested furniture and bed bug ridden mattresses.

Bed bugs show up in New York City public schools

In New York City, bed bugs have been reportedly found in public schools and even one famous Sports Club. So don’t let the name fool you; bed bugs don’t just stay in your bed.

Bed Bugs in NYC Public Schools
bed bug infestation, bed bugs on clothes, bed bugs spread
Bed bugs travel from private homes into classrooms using students as their form of transportation. Bed bugs in NYC public schools is not a new phenomenon, just a growing one. With each unlucky New York City public schools’ discovery, this increasingly frequent occurrence draws more attention due to the school’s obligation to inform parents when even just one of these bugs is found.

Students carry the blood-sucking bugs on their clothes or even their book bags making it all the more important for parents to prevent infestations in their homes. While measures have been taken to encourage parents to prevent bed bug infestations many homes are already affected and therefore keep this problem ongoing. If prevention is no longer an option, parents should at least act to contain their problem with products like SecureSleep™ Smart Buy for Home.

By isolating the problem, NYC schools are hoping to see less numbers of these critters that have increased by three times this past year and caused considerable damage.

We were amongst severalmanufacturers of anti bedbug products. We were very excited to learn that several new customers have chosen our product over the competitor’s due to our quality, affordability and luxurious feel. One buyer stated that he decided on going with our line since we had a great blend of products and because of our unique twist on the whole concept, with our SecureTravel™ products, an area which other mattress encasement companies have not addressed. We had a high percent of agreements signed based upon the number of people who visited our booth. We were especially happy since two of them are now addressing an industry which our current customers were not currently selling to.

Bed bug infestations affecting retail mattress sales

It is a common accepted practice for people to return mattresses to stores if they do not fit the comfort they desire.
That reason for mattress returns is being replaced at some stores due to fear of bed bugs in mattresses. At least two Canadian mattress retailers have scrapped their comfort-exchange programs, pointing to escalating infestations of bed bugs in Canada as the primary reason.

Bed bugs in America

bedbug cartoon, bedbug story, bedbug problem, bedbug funnyJordanna Caine, president of Simmons Mattress Gallery stores in Nova Scotia, said customers over the past year have become increasingly concerned with returned merchandise, as reports of bed bugs invading Canadian and American homes spread. Although the insect has not been detected in the company’s mattresses, exchanges of previously slept-on beds were halted earlier this month. “It’s clearly a concern for people,” she said. “Obviously, we don’t want to put our warehouse, our trucks, and our customers at risk.”
Eliminating mattress exchanges is one of a many tactics being used to combat bedbugs. Many factors have made getting rid of bed bugs a difficult task.
Although Health Canada does not keep record of bedbug infestations, bed bugs have affected provinces across the country. Ontario recently committed $5-million to help public health agencies tackle the problem, while Manitoba is drafting a bed bug strategy. Bed bugs have been detected in low rent buildings as well as high-end hotels. In northern Saskatchewan last November, they were detected in a hospital, prompting a major cleanup and weeks of monitoring.
In the United States, bed bugs have been the subject of two government-organized summits, the latest one held in Washington last month. And, the bed bug problem is expected to worsen! A recent Ohio State University Study found that the bug’s numbers of bedbugs in North America have increased as much as 500% in the past decade, costing businesses and home owners protect a bed from bed bugs, bed bugs, bed bug proof, buy bed bugs killerbillions of dollars annually to deal with the outbreaks. Recently, there has been an urgent call to keep bed bugs in mind when initiating new policies and practices, locally and globally. But is eliminating mattress exchanges the right move? Whether the answer is yes or no, prevention and early detection are key. It may be possible for used mattresses to be treated with steam or covered in entomologist approved Securesleep™ bug-proof encasements.

Bed Bugs VS Humans

bed bug, bedbug, bed bugs, bedbugs, bed bug infestation, bed bug mattress, bed bug protectorBed bugs popularity has increased throughout the years. May Berenbaum, a professor of entomology from the University of Illinois, stated that in 1995 she had not seen a live bedbug, until one of her students found one and mailed it to her. Nowadays, bed bugs are all over the news and all over the country, indicating that the infestation of these bed insects is progressing into a complicated situation.

Although bed bugs had disappeared for some time, there has been a bedbug resurgence, likely due to global traveling. Bed bugs tag along in passenger’s luggage and have made their way to all 50 states, including Guam, Puerto Rico, and American Samoa. Pest control calls are sky rocketing. From June 2009 to June 2010 there were more than 31,000 bed bug calls in New York City alone!

Where we go, bed bugs follow – theaters, stores, offices, schools, trains, ships, hospitals, etc. There is no escape, unless vacation, bed bug travel, bedbug travel, bed bug luggage, luggage liner, luggage protectora new approach is taken. Since bed bugs tend to hide in folds of clothing, bags, backpacks, and luggages, increased bed bug reports indicate that housewives are having an increasingly difficult time keeping free of these household bugs. Luckily, resources such as bedbug.com can provide you with many solutions to keep our clothing safe from these critters when traveling.  Even professional pest control operators are struggling to eliminate bed bugs, as they have become immune to old pesticides, which once were effective.

Sitting at home and feeling secure is no longer assured, as bed bug invasions are on the rise. Bed bugs differ from other household bugs. Unlike other bugs such as cockroaches, ants, and silverfish that are after an inanimate object, bedbugs are after us, and our blood. Entomologist May Berenbaum says, “they’re remarkably adept at circumventing our defenses: They not only attack while we sleep, but they also inject anesthetics, so as not to awaken us, and anticoagulants, so that in every 10-minute feeding they can suck in two to three times their weight in clot-free blood.”
