Houston’s Appeal as an International Travel Destination Results in Increase of Bed Bugs. Bugs-Or-Us is saving the world one bug at a time.
Houston, Texas –We all know that Houston, Texas is a great place to live – and what’s not to love? We have great weather, wonderful restaurants, terrific shopping, world-class museums, and an exciting night life. We tell everyone how great Houston is – and our bragging has not gone un-noticed. The world knows our secret, and they’re coming to visit. In 2009, George Bush International Airport was the nation’s 5th largest international passenger gateway, with more than 7.8 million international passengers.
Trouble is, these visitors are bringing along a nasty and unwanted stowaway: the bed bug. Bed bugs are great travelers. Bugs and their eggs can be accidently brought into your home from other infested dwellings and places, such as hotels, airplanes, buses, trains, public transportation, and movie theatres. The bugs can attach themselves to clothing, shoes, luggage, purses and backpacks, furniture, and visiting pets.
Bed bugs (officially known as Cimex lectularius) are parasitic insects that feed exclusively on blood. Bed bugs usually feed on their hosts without being noticed. Bed bugs are very small, growing to only about 1/8” in length, and about 1/16” in width. They are known as “bed bugs” because they prefer to live in warm houses, especially nearby or inside beds, bedding, and other sleep areas. Bed bugs are mainly active at night. Bed bug bites are usually not immediately noticed, but develop slowly to low itchy welts that may take weeks to go away.
Bed bugs are hard to see but easy to spot – if you know what to look for. The signs of a bed bug infestation include small black spots, shed bed bug skins and egg shells, and bloody or rusty stains on sheets, mattresses, bedding, walls, or upholstered furniture.
In Houston, bed bugs are one of the biggest pest control problems. In addition to making you itch and scratch, bed bugs can do some serious damage to your bank account.
