At Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions, we get a lot of questions about bed bugs and how we treat these for pests. In fact, we have been getting a lot of calls from property owners and managers in Honolulu and Oahu that we thought we’d take a moment and answer a few of the more frequently asked bed bug questions.
Think bed bugs are a thing of the past in Hawaii? We think not! In a recent ranking of the top cities most affected by bed bugs, Honolulu ranked 17. This number is up 55 places from last year which means the problem is still growing.
Bed bugs are spreading across the country like wild fire, and Hawaii is no exception. There have been many sitings of these blood sucking parasites in all manner of facilities. Homes, apartment buildings, hotels and other commercial facilities all can have bed bugs at one time or another and it’s not a problem of having unsanitary conditions. These pests don’t care if you have a tiny rent controlled apartment or if you’ve rented the swankiest room in a 5 star hotel- they can live and go anywhere, and as long as they have a blood meal ready and waiting (meaning a human, lying fast asleep in a bed), these pests can survive.
Do you have bed bugs in your home or business? Here are a few signs you should look for when inspecting for bed bugs, and things you can do to prevent bringing them home when you travel.
