Bed Bugs In Rome

Though the bed bug, also known as Cimex lectularius, has a Roman name, this isn’t an article about the affliction these pests were in ancient Rome or how they got their name. Instead, we are going to take a look at how these bugs can affect us here in Rome, Georgia and some of the misconceptions people have about this pest that can sometimes create the conditions for even more frustration.

When bed bugs strike a business or public municipality, they can create a major problem. Here are a few of the reasons why.

There is a perception that bed bugs only inhabit nasty places. Though, this is not true, they can still foster a sense of embarrassment. This has a tendency to drive people to respond rashly, throwing out mattresses, couches, chairs and other furniture. This is actually not necessary. A bed bug heat treatment will kill bed bugs deep inside these items. It is also important to understand that if your business or organization receives donated furniture, you don’t have to require donations to be in the form of new furniture still in their packaging. It is understandable to want to go in this direction, but bed bugs are a hitchhiking bug. They can come inside bags and on clothing, not just inside furniture and mattresses.

For some people, these bugs can cause significant mental trauma. If you manage or run a property that has residents, a bed bug infestation can quickly lead to hysteria, and sometimes lawsuits. The key to prevention is routine inspections. Bed bug infestations can be stopped before they begin, but it requires the assistance of a professional.

These are elusive bugs. If treated improperly, bed bugs are adept at fleeing into the walls and into other parts of a building. This causes the infestation to spread or appear to be gone only to return in a few short months.
