June 7-13 is bed bug awareness week (BBAW). Why make a special week for bed bug awareness? Because this is a very special bug. It doesn't chew through your exterior walls. It doesn't crawl in under your doors. This is a bug that hitches a ride on humans. And the easiest humans to hitch a ride on are humans that are unaware. Thus, the Professional Pest Management Alliance is spearheading a campaign to inform the public. Here is a list of bed bug facts they would like you to know. Feel free to tweet them on social media. Use the hashtag #BBAW so we can all coordinate our efforts.
Bed bugs are a problem no matter what part of the country you live in, even if you live on the beautiful the islands of Hawaii. Bed bugs have made a comeback in the last decade and they don’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. Because of this, it is important to know what bed bugs are and how to get rid of them so that you can protect yourself, your family and your home from these persistent pests.
There are a lot of pests that we deal with in Hawaii. Termites, rodents and cockroaches are some of the most damaging and most frustrating pests we come into contact with, but there is one pest that is considered the least favorite and most unpopular pest in Hawaii: that pest is the bed bug! Bed bugs are difficult to locate. They are tiny, about the size of an apple seed. They are also nocturnal, which means they’re searching for a blood meal while you are sleeping.
