There is nothing worse than waking up with bug bites on your skin. Here in Hawaii, one of the most common reasons people wake up with bug bites is because their living areas are infested with bed bugs. What do bed bugs look like and how do you get bed bugs? Well, one way people pick up these pests is by going to work. If you are concerned about picking up a bed bug infestation from your Hawaii office, here are some things to consider today including how to get rid of bed bugs at home or at work.
Something on a lot of people’s minds is how do bed bugs travel? The truth is, bed bugs travel more than any other pests in our area. They do this by hitching rides on items people carry. You might find bed bugs inside briefcases, inside piles of used clothing, on backpacks, and even within electronics. How do bed bugs know which items to hop onto? By smelling for carbon dioxide and seeking out residual heat. These things allow bed bugs to identify what items are being carried by people and will give them the best chances of finding a home to settle down inside. If bed bugs are inside your Hawaii office, then they are probably in between rides. Chances are, they were brought in by an infested item, hopped off, and have not found a new item to continue their journey to a permanent home. If your office offers places for people to sleep, then bed bugs might just settle in there and live their best bug lives.
Something you should consider is: What are the signs of bed bugs? The truth is, these pests do not leave many signs behind in areas where they are not regularly feeding. Without regular blood meals, these pests don’t leave behind bites, bloodstains, or fecal droppings. Keeping this in mind, we recommend encouraging everyone at your workplace to check their homes for these pests. Here are some things they should look for.
