Bed Bug Hot Spots

Bed Bug Hot Spots

“Find the Spot… Apply the Dot”

A few bed bugs is not an infestation, it is an occurrence. When an “occurrence” goes undetected, “infestations” build.

Bed bug bites can cause skin reactions but some people don’t realize it’s from bed bugs.

There are people who have no reactions to the bites of a bed bug and months can go by before they realize what is happening. It is at this point that they are now dealing with “infestation” levels.

We all know that the best defense against having bed bugs is a good offense and that is what bedbugdot provides for you! Bedbugdot not only teaches you where bed bugs hide, where to look, but creates an awareness and provides affordable peace of mind.

Knowing where bed bugs choose their hiding places is important so you know where to look for signs. Bed bugs prefer to hide in undisturbed dark places with cracks, crevices and folds (e.g., beds, easy chairs and couches) closest to their host. They will move outside of these areas as “infestations” build up.

HOSPITAL | DOCTORS WAITING ROOMS

Many people enter waiting rooms on a daily basis; that includes new patients, caregivers to family members, staff and delivery people. If a person with bed bugs on their clothing, wheel chair or on any personal possession is left sitting in a waiting room for any amount of time, they may crawl off into surrounding areas. This can be a source for spreading bed bugs throughout the facility and must be addressed as soon as possible.

Their hidden nature causes them to hide in the smallest of places and they often go unnoticed for great lengths of time. This is why we recommend that as part of your proactive Bed Bug Intake and Prevention Procedure Protocol, you install bedbugdots. Checking them regularly will inform you of potential bed bug activity before they spread throughout your facility.
