Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) July 19, 2013
July’s heat wave has raised New Yorkers’ concerns about staying cool and safe, while avoiding dehydration and power failures. It’s also brought out the New York region’s least wanted problem - bed bugs.
Bell Environmental, a leading pest control company that serves the New York Metropolitan region, says its bed bug inquiries rose significantly in last few days. While summer months equal bed bug season when insect problems are greater, inquiries are up over 40% from last year.
“This week, we’ve gotten calls about bed bug issues in offices, government buildings, apartment complexes, theaters, and camps,” said Glenn Waldorf of Bell Environmental. “The problem is as widespread as ever.”
Why are bed bugs so active now?
Bed bugs are more troublesome on hot days. They are more active in terms of their feeding, movement, and hitchhiking to new places. Bed bugs also reproduce and mature faster in higher temperatures.
Bed bugs are a problem that no one wants, but anyone can get. For advice on how to avoid bed bugs and protect yourself against these worrisome insects, visit Bell-Environmental.com or download Bell Environmental’s free app “Roscoe’s Bed Bug Tips.”
