Industries Most Impacted By Bed Bugs
March 5, 2018
Since the turn of the century, bed bugs have been spreading throughout the United States at an alarming rate. As we enter 2018, it seems as though few business sectors have been left unaffected. Here are 3 industries most impacted by bed bugs.
Whether you own a large resort or a set of hunting cabins in the middle of the woods, bed bugs can be a threat. These hitchhiking bugs go from one area of infestation to the next by riding in the belongings your guests carry in with them. Businesses that have beds are especially susceptible to a bed bug infestation. These insects are mostly nocturnal and prefer to feed under the cover of night.
When bed bugs infest a home, the infestation is isolated to that home. In a large building with many rooms or residences, bed bugs can pass from one room to the next by way of wall voids. This can turn into a sensitive situation. Every property manager should have a plan to address these bugs before and after they appear.
As bed bugs spread from one location to the next, they can accidentally crawl off at any point along the way. If you own a retail store, be aware that bed bugs lay eggs on clothing. If a batch of eggs hatches in your store, they can survive by biting employees when they sit or lounge in break areas. Bed bugs are not limited to only feeding at night. It is important for every retailer to know what bed bugs look like so an infestation isn't able to grow.
