Posts with the tag: "bed bug control"
Bed bugs are everywhere, including right here in Honolulu and Hawaii and when people discover that they have a bed bug infestation, the most common question asked is how did bed bugs arrive in their home. Well since bed bugs do not fly like some insects or jump like fleas, they did not enter under their own steam through the front door. While they do not have wings and can’t jump, they are skilled climbers and will actually crawl up high to drop down onto their target (which could be a bed, chair, person, bag etc.) Once on an item/person, they will hitch a ride right into your home, unnoticed of course!
Since bed bugs in Honolulu do not favor any particular kind of environment and are just as likely to infest homes, as they are hotels and other businesses, when it comes to preventing bed bugs, you can never be too careful. And with Honolulu being such a travel hotspot, it’s no wonder that bed bugs are still thriving here.
