Bed Bugs in Residential Areas in NYC
In New York City and its surrounding areas, reports of bed bug outbreaks and infestations have increased at an alarming rate. New York City was recently dubbed as the “most infected city” in America.
Just as hotels and public areas are vulnerable to infestation by bed bugs; so too are residential areas, including: private homes, leased apartments as well as many major apartment complexes in the New York City and Tri-State area. Because bed bugs can live for a very long time without food and because they reproduce at an extremely quick rate, terminating bed bugs from your home may be an extremely daunting task, consuming your time and money. However, preventative measures taken at first infestation or before they are even inside your residence can be vital in eliminating the threat before it is upon you. Taking preventative measures will not only save you time and money but also your peace of mind.
Things NOT to Do When Attempting to Kill Bed Bugs in Your Home or Building
There are many issues and factors one must consider when attempting to kill bed bugs through methods involving pesticides.
According to Dini M. Miller Ph.D of Virginia Tech’s Department of Entomology:
There is no pesticide that will eliminate bed bugs 100% of the time.
Fumigation of small apartments all the way through massive apartment buildings has been attempted with limited success and can range anywhere from $5000 - $60,000.
Treatment through methods involving pesticides usually requires multiple products being applied at least 3 times every two weeks.
Large apartment complexes require cooperation from all of the tenants as well as management in order to properly carry out fumigation.
Products used need to be approved by the EPA and most pesticides that have been approved for indoor use are loaded with chemicals that may harm your children and pets.
