Calling in a Capable Bed Bug Exterminator to Beat Bloodsuckers
From Bedbug infestations on the rise in Wisconsin, Fox News, September 2, 2013
An article on the Fox News website published last September 2, 2013 details the rise of bedbug infestations in places like Wisconsin. The number of attacks have recently surged, and many people have complained about the bites. What’s worse, it’s looking more and more like the attacks are spreading across the country:
“We’re not immune to the bedbug epidemic that has been ongoing for the past five to 10 years in the U.S. and globally,” said Paul Biedrzycki, director of disease control and environmental health for the Milwaukee Health Department. “New York, Los Angeles and Chicago have all had problems with bedbugs for a while. It’s been on our radar the last five years in a big way, with a marked increase in reports here.”
Bedbugs aren’t deadly creatures. According to the article, “While infestations have been referred to worldwide as a “bedbug pandemic,” Biedrzycki said the bugs don’t pose a public health threat. They don’t carry bacteria or diseases, though some people develop secondary infections from scratching the bites.” Deadly or not, these pests can be a serious nuisance. Waking up with numerous welts across your body surely isn’t comfortable. It’s during these conditions that folks should call an experienced bed bug exterminator like the Bug Maniacs team to get rid of the problem.
Despite repeated attempts to control their populations, bedbugs are some of the most ferocious and persistent pests in the world. Biedrzycki describes them as “vampiric in nature because they come out at night and suck your blood,” and as “horrid little creatures no one wants to encounter in their bedroom, especially at night.” Their flat bodies allow them to hide and nest almost anywhere in a room, from cracks in the wall to the headboard of a bed itself. Sometimes, bedbugs can also be found in libraries, lurking in books and waiting for new prey.
Folks who discover that their room is infested by these little bloodsuckers should immediately sign up for bedbug control. Exterminators have the experience and equipment necessary to completely flush out scores of the pests. They will scour entire rooms, never missing even the smallest spots, to ensure that a customer’s room is bedbug-free.
