West Texas pest control expert shares tips to avoid and combat bed bugs – NewsWest9.com

According to the owner of Brown Pest Solutions, oftentimes, people will go days or even months before realizing they are dealing with a bed bug infestation.

MIDLAND, Texas On March 21, the City of Midland said the customer service office, located on Andrews Highway, would be closed for a few days amid concerns over bedbugs. It's the second time this month that the issue has caused the office to close its doors.

The widespread message of bed bugs may not come as a surprise, considering the season we're in. It's the busiest time of the year for Stan Brown, the owner of Brown Pest Solutions, and his team, as the warmer temperatures and rainfalls bring along many insects.

"A lot of the times there's people who do not realize they have bed bugs," Brown said. "And they'll treat for many different things, when suddenly they start finding a bug on them or bites."

Brown said some of the signs of bed bugs include seeing dark little spots on things like your bed. It's the blood they've been consuming that they later secrete.

"I tell our customers that one bed bug is an infestation because once they start feeding on you, they start multiplying," said Brown.

According to Brown, the responsibility of getting rid of the bed bugs is shared between the pest control expert and the property owner.

"I really tell people that 75% of the responsibility for getting rid of them is how they prepare the house for us by following a list of things to do before we get there," said Brown.

For homeowners, some of the items on that list include but are not limited to these two things:

"It's almost like you're moving out," Brown said. "You have to go through everything, and that's you really want to be serious about getting rid of them."

During a press conference in March, the senior services manager for the Midland Health Department, Dr. Whitney Craig, sid bed bugs are not dangerous.

"They're a parasitic insect, but they're also a nuisance," Dr. Craig said. "So they'll create itching, and then because they do bite during the nighttime while you're asleep, that may create insomnia because you're up scratching all night."

According to Dr. Craig, the reactions people may have to bed bug bites are different from person to person. Some people may not see bites at all, while others may experience something more severe such as an anaphylactic shock.

Dr. Craig said most of the times it's common to experience itching.

10 worst cities for bed bugs in Canada identified; number 1 is in Ontario | insauga – insauga.com

Preferred Region How does this work?

The bed bug report is back and several Ontario cities are among the 10 worst places in all of Canada for the pesky insects.

Pest control company Orkin Canada released its annual list of the countrys bed-buggiest cities earlier today. The list is based on the number of calls for commercial and residential bed bug treatments received by the company in 2023.

The top five spots on this years list are all Ontario cities.

Toronto once again tops the list. But Vancouver dropped from second to sixth place on this years ranking.

Sudbury rose to second place from third last year and Oshawa rose to third from fourth last year. Hamilton shot up to fourth place up from ten last year.

Winnipeg also cracked the top ten this year after placing eleventh in 2022, now ranking seventh across the country.

As people return to normal life after pandemic lockdowns, bed bugs can more easily spread.

As weve seen travel return to pre-pandemic levels, Canadians should be on guard for bed bugs, as these pests are extremely resilient and can hitchhike from place to place unnoticed and with ease, said Dr. Alice Sinia, an entomologist with Orkin Canada.

Known as expert hitchhikers, bed bugs cling to clothing, luggage and furniture to invade new spaces, stowing themselves in baseboards, electronics, bedding, wallpaper, wall hangings and sofas.

Following the Paris bed bug craze, Orkin Canada urges residents and tourists not to panic but to be vigilant and stay on the lookout for signs and traces of bed bugs.

Bed bugs can leave behind skins when they are molting and after feeding, bed bugs will regularly leave behind small spots of reddish-black fecal matter on bedding, mattress or box springs.

They will lay eggs in dark crevices near feeding areas.

Orkin Canada suggests calling a professional if you see signs of bed bugs. The company recently announced it also has a K9 team of detection dogs trained to locate bed bugs with incredible accuracy.

The complete list of Canadas bed buggiest cities can be found here.

List of cities with most bed bugs in Canada released – St. Albert Gazette

Alberta's two largest cities are on pest control company's top 25 list of places with the most bed bugs in Canada.

Alberta landed just off the top 10 list in Orkin Canadas list of CandasTop 25 Bed Bug Cities list.

Calgary was number 10 and Edmonton was number 11 on the annual list and were the only cities named in Alberta on the top 25 list. In the west, the only city on the top 10 was Vancouver, down from number 2 last year. Prince George came in at number 23 and Saskatoon at number 25.

Ontario is tops for the dubious title of most bed bugs treated by Orkin Canada in 2023. Six of the top 10 cities on the list are in Ontario. Toronto and Sudbury were first and second respectively for the most bedbug treatments. It is the seventh year in row that Toronto was found to have the most bed bugs in Orkins annual report.

"As we've seen travel return to pre-pandemic levels, Canadians should be on guard for bed bugs, as these pests are extremely resilient and can hitchhike from place to place unnoticed and with ease," said Dr. Alice Sinia, an entomologist with Orkin Canada. "Known as expert hitchhikers, bed bugs cling to clothing, luggage and furniture to invade new spaces, stowing themselves in baseboards, electronics, bedding, wallpaper, wall hangings and sofas."

A press release from Orkin advises people to look for black, inky-looking dots on their mattresses, behind baseboards, nightstands and soft furniture, like sofas and chairs, regularly and when buying second-hand furniture.

When travelling, keep suitcases and clothes in plastic bags and put clothes in the dryer upon returning home on high heat for more than 20 minutes, the press release says.

The pest is four to five millimetres long and are red to a dark brown colour, oval in shape and flat. They survive on blood and typically come out at night to bite people and pets while they sleep.

Alberta Health Services advises that if bitten by bed bugs you can:

Wash bites with soap;

Use anti-itch cream or an oatmeal-soaked face cloth to reduce the itch;

Put an ice pack on the bites for inflammation

Visit a doctor if the bites become infected.

Toronto has the most bed bugs in Canada. Here’s where else they’re common – CityNews Toronto

Toronto has once again claimed the top spot as the worst Canadian city for bed bugs, with Ontario rounding out the top five, according to Orkin Canada.

Ottawa placed fifth on the list while Toronto takes the top spot for the seventh straight year. Sudbury, Oshawa and Hamilton placed second, third and fourth respectively.

Pest control company Orkin Canada says cities are ranked by the number of bed bug treatments it performed from January 1, 2023, through December 31, 2023, and the rankings include both residential and commercial treatments.

The top 10 is as follows:

As weve seen travel return to pre-pandemic levels, Canadians should be on guard for bed bugs, as these pests are extremely resilient and can hitchhike from place to place unnoticed and with ease, said Dr. Alice Sinia, an entomologist with Orkin Canada.

Known as expert hitchhikers, bed bugs cling to clothing, luggage and furniture to invade new spaces, stowing themselves in baseboards, electronics, bedding, wallpaper, wall hangings and sofas.

As spring rolls in, Orkin Canada reminds homeowners and travellers to take precautions against bringing bed bugs back with them.

Youre encouraged to be vigilant and stay on the lookout for signs and traces of bed bugs in order to avoid infestations. While bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, Orkin Canada says they are cryptic and excellent at hiding, making them difficult to control.

Having a trained professional intervene at the first sight of a bed bug is highly recommended.
