Queens Bed Bug & Pest Services
As if mornings weren’t bad enough, imagine waking up each morning only to discover new itchy, swollen, red bumps on your arms. At first, you might think it is just an irritating rash, after all, it has been known to happen. However, after several weeks of waking up with new bites in addition to the old bites, you start to think there is seriously something wrong inside your home. And, the truth is you are right, those itchy, swollen, red bumps signify there is something more going on inside the walls of your home than just some crazy, out of control allergen.
If you are waking up to new itchy, swollen, red bug bites every morning for weeks on end, one of the possible answers could be that you are the victim of an infestation. Many residents scoff at the idea at first because they were something that you used to hear about in stories your grandmother told. It was something that was common during the “old days,” not something that can happen in today’s world, right? Wrong! Bed bugs were just about eradicated in the 1950s thanks to the use of DDT, but just lately they have been making quite a comeback and it seems that Queens and its surrounding areas have been hit quite hard. It seems those little buggers are everywhere, perhaps because they are.
One of the worst things about them is their size. They are so small that they often go unnoticed because it is hard to spot them with the naked eye. Even our highly trained technicians have a hard time spotting them with their eyes alone, so they are trained to look for infestations by looking for signs they leave behind. So with how small they are and how hard it is to spot them, it should be easy to understand how quickly they can spread.
Bed bugs are well known hitchhikers, similar to fleas, except unlike fleas, they don’t hitch rides on animals. They are known to crawl into suitcases or even into the hems of your clothes, allowing them to easily travel from one location to the next. Hitchhiking is how they can go from a motel to a single-family home with ease. All it takes is fober one of them to enter the building and before you know it, the entire complex is infested, thanks to the shared walls. Pest control is a completely different ball game when you have that many people living under one roof, but it is not impossible.
One thing that most exterminators will tell you about pest control in apartments versus a home is that apartments are easier. One of the biggest advantages exterminators have inside of apartments is the lack of hiding spots. Bed bugs, along with other pests and rodents, such as mice and rats, like to hide out of sight, so the bigger the home the more places they have to hide. Not to mention bigger homes often mean a lot more furniture and clutter, as there is more open space to fill up. With fewer nooks and crannies to run to, they are easier to spot, which makes them easier to kill.
Many people try to treat their pest problems on their own; they feel that they can save time and money doing it on their own. What they don’t realize is that the do-it yourself methods rarely work in apartment buildings. Bed bugs, as well as other pests, such as fleas and spiders, hide in the walls, making it easy to travel from one apartment to another. So, what happens is you treat your apartment, but your neighbors don’t, so the pests simply move over to your neighbors’ house until it is “safe” to come back into yours. Fighting an infestation inside of an apartment building on your own is a losing battle.
In order to successfully treat an infestation inside an apartment building the entire building needs to be treated, every unit must be gone over carefully. However, as all of you know, this is not always possible, for a variety of reasons, so what else can you do. Your best shot is to give us a call to have one of our trained technicians come out to inspect your unit. We will come up with a plan for your specific situation.
