GotchA! Bed Bug Inspectors Offer Helpful Prevention Tips
The Summer Heat Has GotchA! Bed Bug Inspectors Itching with Bed Bugs
Merrick, NY (I-Newswire) August 12, 2013 - Summer is now in full swing. Pools are open, air conditioners are running, and kids are out of school. People, pets, and pests alike, have come out of their caves and are starting to enjoy the long-overdue, intense levels of vitamin D from the sun. Similarly, so are the parasites responsible for millions of bites, nationwide. That's right, 'tis the season for BED BUGS! GotchA! Bed Bug Inspectors says that although bed bugs attack year round, July through September is what can be called Bed Bug Season and have offered some advice to help Long Islanders avoid an infestation.
Scientifically known as Cimex lectularius (Cimicidae), bed bugs are almost parasitic in size, but they are actually miniscule insects and without wings. However, what keeps these extraordinarily unpopular creatures in the limelight is that they are hematophagous. Hematophagous can be defined as a "blood sucker," but it actually means the insect has two tubes which protrude from its mouth, one which is secretes an anesthetic-like saliva and one which sucks the blood from its prey, both animals and humans. Bed bugs not only leave dozens of itchy marks, after feeding, but their saliva can also cause mild to severe allergic reactions in a person who has been bitten over the course of several weeks.
GotchA! Bed Bug Inspectors are experts in everything bed bugs and want Long Islanders to be educated on bed bugs, as a form of infestation prevention. Although they are around year-round, bed bugs like warm temperatures, which is why they are found in homes. Houses provide the warmth they desire, year round, especially in places like blankets, mattresses, carpets, etc. Such places are great places for bed bugs to burrow into and hide, but it also provides an extra layer of protection and warmth. However, the summer months prove to be the prime months for these predators to attack because it provides optimal temperatures and because traveling season is in full swing, thus increasing the transport of bed bugs from hotels, motels, and other homes, into a greater number of individual houses.

However, the best form of extermination is prevention and the team at GotchA Bed Bug Inspectors wants to provide Long Islanders and those in the tri-state area with some easy prevention tips for all year round.
Wash all bedding once a week or once every other week with soap and water that is at least 120 degrees in temperature, to kill bed bugs and destroy any eggs they have laid. (Including: pillows, sheets, mattress pads, bed skirts, blankets, and comforters.)
Vacuum floors often and use the vacuum accessories to get in cracks and crevices. It is smart to vacuum your mattress, too. This will suck up and insect that have made themselves home.
Protect your mattress by purchasing a special encasement that provides a barrier the bed bugs cannot penetrate. Then they can't burrow in or climb out.
Be sure to inspect all furniture and mattresses you purchase.
Routinely inspect your mattress, bed frame, and bedding for bed bugs or bed bug excrement.
Secure and fill in all holes in walls, as well as cracks/crevices, including those that surround outlets, windows, and vents.
Keep clothes off the floor so bed bugs don't attach to them and then infest your dresser drawers.
Spray preventative products throughout your house, such as Pronto Plus.
Vacuum, spray, inspect, and if applicable, wash all second-hand items. You have no idea where they were or what was in the previous home/building. Check drawers in these items, as well.
When traveling, you have no clue who has been in the room prior to you and even the most intense cleaning won't catch or destroy bed bugs.
Check the beds and linen for bed bugs/excrement.
Keeps clothes and luggage off the floor! Use a chair or the top of a dresser.
Do not put your clothes into hotel drawers.
