Look out Hawaii, there is a new bug in town. It is oval, rust-colored and feeds on blood. That's right, we're talking about the not-so-lovable bed bug, and according to an annual survey conducted nationwide, Honolulu has crawled up three notches to sit at No. 42 out of all U.S. cities surveyed.
If you were to pick up surfing, you wouldn't just grab a board and go out into the giant waves. You would want someone to help you recognize the many dangers--even the ones you may not immediately see, like sharks, jellyfish, snakes, stingrays, and urchins. You would want your guide to explain how riptides can suck you out into the ocean and how the impact of a powerful wave can break a bone. You would trust your guide to teach you proper surf etiquette, so you don't make other surfers want to kill you. When you seek out the help of a knowledgeable friend, there is safety. Do you have a knowledgeable friend helping you protect your home or business from bed bugs?
Are you planning to travel with bed bugs this holiday season? Ok, so we are joking because we know that you would not voluntarily make your holiday travel plans with any bed bugs. But the reality is that folks traveling to and from Honolulu, Hawaii this holiday season may have encounters with these pests including bed bug infested hotel rooms and homes.
Bed bugs aren’t the kind of pest problem where you just wait a little while and they might go away.

The possibility of bed bugs leaving your home on their own is slim to none, unless you vacate your property, possibly for longer than a year. Since that’s not going to happen, the very best way to get rid of bed bugs to is to act as soon as it becomes obvious there is a problem.
