The epidemic of bed bug invasions in all sorts of residential and commercial structures throughout the U.S. and San Diego County has caused a scare in dwellers and property managers alike. Reports have shown that University Heights, El Cajon, and downtown San Diego are prime areas from these pesky bugs. A recent University Heights apartment complex claimed to have found multiple live bed bugs in most of the units and similar stories occurring in apartments around El Cajon and San Diego.
Bed bugs have minimal survival requirements and can live practically anywhere which makes no place exempt from infestation. Bed bug problems have been associated with having unclean surroundings but even the most thorough home or office cleanings will not prevent invasions. Until recently, bed bug problems were rare in the U.S. and only prevalent in Eastern Europe, Asia, and Africa. Experts have related the recent bed bug epidemic to the increase in worldwide travel.
Bed bugs can be hard to detect so it is recommended to get an inspection done on your property. The bugs can hide in the smallest crevices and can adjust their active schedule to be opposite of yours. They do not transmit disease but will bite you while you sleep causing itching and welts.
It is important to have the bed bugs removed as soon as possible as they can reproduce quickly and abundantly. Bed bugs are difficult to get rid of with do-it-yourself pest control techniques. DIY methods require multiple treatments and temporary loss of use to your home or office with rare successful removals. New commercial bed bug removal and bed bug extermination methods have been proven more effective with the use of heat fans in rooms to bring the temperature between 120 and 135 degrees. Bed bugs cannot survive in temperatures above 113 degrees. Other industrial equipment and products can successfully remove the bugs from your home without interrupting your daily routines.
