WHAT ARE BEDBUGS?
Bed bugs are insects with oval-shaped bodies and
no wings. Bed bugs usually bite at night and will bite all over,
especially around the face, neck, upper torso, arms and hands. There are
currently no known cases of infectious disease transmitted to people by
bed bug bites.
Even the cleanest houses, hotels or apartments can get bed bugs,
but regular inspection and cleaning can help you prevent an infestation.
One of the best ways to control a bed bug infestation is to
spot the problem early and act quickly.
If you find bed bugs
in your home or apartment, your local Public Health Unit may be a source of additional information or talk to your
landlord, building manager, or a pest control professional.
- Bed bug control requires an integrated pest management (IPM) approach that includes proper preparation and inspection, identification and housekeeping. This will ensure the risk of pesticide exposure is minimized, the environment is protected, and the effectiveness of the treatment is maximized.
Getting rid of bed bug infestations usually requires the use of pesticides and other treatments.
Only professionals should apply pesticides for bed bugs. Foggers and bug bombs are not effective against them.
