Hawaii is one of the most beautiful and exotic spots to visit on the Earth, but it can't be all things to all people all the time. Sometimes our interests take us to other exotic locations. We may want to visit the Eiffel Tower or sample all that Paris has to offer. We may want to explore the Serengeti and see what a rhinoceros looks like up close. There are many places in the world that offer experiences that can't be had here. Are you planning to visit one of them? If you are, you should know that bed bugs are a worldwide pest. Whether you're planning a hunting expedition in Argentina, or a tour of the Northern Lights in Alaska, you should make bed bug prevention a part of your travel plans.
At one point in the not so distant past, it was doubtful that many people under the age of 40 had ever heard much about bed bugs, and it is even more doubtful that any had the opportunity to come face to face with one. Bed bugs were just part of a good night phrase that the older generation would say as you scurried up the stairs to bed. Now, it is no wonder that many of these same people are at a loss when they hear that the bed bug has made a huge comeback in recent years.
There are a lot of creatures in Hawaii that didn't start out here. Like all of the other invasive species that now call Hawaii home, bed bugs got here the same way: by boat and by plane, but unlike rats and mice, they didn't stowaway in a cargo area. They also didn't come inside coffee beans, like the coffee borer beetle, or inside lumber products, like the termite. This pest prefers to be up close and personal./pest-identification/profile/bed-bugs
