San Diego County is not an exception to the recent invasions of bed bugs in all types of living spaces (apartments, single-family dwellings, etc.) and commercial buildings. Reports of infestations, coming from all over the county (Carlsbad, El Cajon, Escondido), have shown that bed bugs are a serious problem in San Diego.
The growing problem has been linked to an increase in travel, the reduced use of harmful, yet effective pesticides like DDT, bed bugs immunity to some pesticides, and the increased use of pesticides that target specific pests allowing others, including bed bugs, to survive.
Other U.S. states are in a panic from the epidemic and have requested assistance from the Department of Defense. Ohio has contacted the Environmental Protection Agency to get permission to allow banned pesticides for bed bug invasions. Also, sold out expos and summits have been hosted to show demonstrations of modern techniques that are effective in fighting against these pests.
Bed bugs can live in mattress seams, bed frames, box springs, crevices or cracks in walls, behind wallpaper and other furniture. Although there is not a direct correlation with bed bugs and dirty living space, clutter does make it easier for them to dwell.
When travelling, leave luggage outside hotel room until the room is inspected for bed bugs. Upon returning home, inspect clothing and luggage and immediately wash clothing and dry in high heat.
