I am sure that as a child most of us heard, sleep tight and don’t let the bedbugs bite! I know that it was a silly saying back then, but not now. We as senior care Marion experts and home health care Gas City experts are noticing an increase! It is reported that the increase in bedbugs is almost 5 times what they once were. They are on the rise not just in rural areas such as Marion, Indiana or Gas City, Indiana. They are also found in the swankest hotels of New York City! The cause if found due to a couple of different reasons. The chemical DDT was responsible for eradicating them after World War II. However DDT was deemed illegal in 1972 and that is one reason they have been increasing. Another reason is the explosive growth of international travel.
So what exactly are bedbugs? They are nocturnal parasitic insects that feed solely on the blood of warm blooded animals. They are not only found in beds as their name suggests. They can be found throughout the home. Hometown Home Healthcare, as senior health care Marion experts, has noticed them in our cleaning of people homes! Even our team of home health care Gas City experts has seen them. We report this immediately to our clients!
So I am sure that most people believe that it is dirty conditions that cause bedbugs, but that is not the case. Harold Harlan a career bug expert for the US Military and a prominent authority on bedbugs states;
“Infestations of common bed bugs, Cimex lectularius L., are not directly related to sanitation levels. The cleanest living area can have a very large infestation, and improving sanitation alone will not eliminate an established bed bug population. Cluttered conditions can offer the bugs a lot of excellent harborages very near their human blood-meal hosts. Almost anyone is at risk of having an infestation if bed bugs are brought into their home.”
