Bed bugs are on the rise all over the US. They infest homes, businesses and even rehab centers. A single bed bug hitching a ride on a tenant can quickly turn into a facility-wide infestation. Bed bugs in rehab centers need preventative maintenance to keep them from becoming a large problem.
Why Bed Bugs Love Rehab Centers
With a constant turnover in patients, rehab centers are places where bed bugs can be easily introduced and thrive. While bed bugs do not transmit disease, their bites can result in allergic reactions or secondary skin infections. This can have an impact on the mental health of residents already struggling with addiction, as constant biting from these insects can result in anxiety or insomnia.
How They Get In
Bed bugs love to travel. In the folds of clothes that visitors wear. In the luggage of a patient that is checking in for treatment. All it takes is one bed bug getting into your facility. You can quickly go from one room with a problem to a whole wing needing to be treated if not handled properly.
How To Avoid an Infestation of Your Facility
Once bed bugs enter a rehab center, they can spread quickly. If you see reddish stains or dark spots on bed sheets, these can be signs of bed bug activity. Regular screenings of your facilities for bed bugs is the best way to avoid a full-blown infestation. Early detection means swift elimination.
