Bed bugs are on the rise all over the US. They infest homes, businesses and even apartment buildings. Just one infested unit can quickly spread to the entire building or complex.
There are numerous ways that a bed bug can enter an apartment. They can crawl through tiny cracks in the walls from neighboring apartment units. Picking up used contaminated furniture is another way these pests can gain access. Bed bugs can also easily “hitch a ride” in a luggage case or backpack after traveling.
If your tenants tend to be involved in any high-risk activities like traveling or buying used furniture, it is recommended that you schedule a preventative screening. The sooner you take action against bed bugs the less damage they can do and the easier it will be to eliminate them from the premises. Furthermore, if you notice any of these signs of bed bug activity you should call a professional pest control company right away.
