Lately bed bugs have reared their ugly heads more often in all types of work places. Why? Bed bugs are small and they easy to pick up. Just like other bugs, they can be carried by anyone on your purse, backpack, personal belongings, clothing or shoes and can drop off anywhere. Couches are one of the most popular places where bed bugs bunch up as they prefer fabrics and wood, however they’re drawn to warmth and can hide almost anywhere in an office — cubicle dividers, underneath raised floors, in folders and files, even in computers and other equipment.
However there is no need to let your emotions get carried away if you find them in your work place. Properly handled, bed bugs are a manageable problem and can be eliminated with a minimum of disruption to your operations.
Controlling bed bugs in office buildings comes with some unique challenges due to the complexity of the environment. In an office detection is rare mostly because they are nocturnal insects; visual inspection is more difficult as they are dispersed over a large area. There are industries such as hospitality (hotels, guest houses, B&B’s) public institutions (healthcare, universities) and transportation (airlines, railways) that are at a higher risk of infestation.
In office infestations inspection is one of the critical steps. As bed bugs can be located anywhere one of the first steps in control is spotting as many infested areas as possible.
Pest control services & cleaning after office has been treated are the main method of eradication. Thorough vacuuming does make a difference. As bed bugs hatchlings measure less than 1 millimeter it is essential for proper removal to use powerful vacuums that can capture any bugs hiding deep in the carpet or in the upholstery. Whatever vacuums you use must be properly cleaned after to ensure you do not keep bed bugs inside the vacuum bags or filters.
