Travelers that carry bed bugs home from infested hotels is one way that the bed bug problem in South Jersey is being spread.Even the best hotels can be infested. To avoid bringing the critters home from your next trip, here's what to look for:
Preventing an infestation begins before you even leave your home.
Because of the serious nature of this pest and the rapid spreading nation wide, if a bed bug infestation does occur it is important not to try to take matters into your own hands.The NJ Department of Health and Senior Services (NJDHSS) recommends that homeowners hire a pest control professional licensed by the New JerseyDepartment of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). The NJDHS recommends an evaluation by a licensed professional to determine whether or not bed bugs are present, and to exterminate them if so. The following is a quote from their site."A careful inspection must be undertaken and all possible hiding places within infested and adjoining rooms examined. Once all likely sources have been identified, then an approved insecticide,should be applied to all areas where bed bugs hide."Cato uses the latest innovations when treating bed bugs.
