The Best Bed Bug Exterminators in Anchorage, AK 2019

Bed bugs can travel into your home via luggage, secondhand furniture or clothing, and other items that have been exposed to the little pests. Bed bugs are tiny and flat (about the size of an apple seed and the height of a credit card), so they can easily hide in dark, small places and hitchhike into your home. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, most people dont even know theyre transporting bed bugs as they travel from location to location, infecting areas as they travel. The sooner you notice a bed bug infestation in your home, the easier it is to get rid of it. The EPA suggests an integrated pest management plan to get rid of bed bug problems. This means a multi-pronged approach that takes the bugs life cycle into account, uses chemical treatment where needed, and takes all necessary measures (use of encasements, high heat washing and drying of bedding, etc.) to stop current and future life cycles. Unless you feel confident about controlling a bed bug infestation, it can be wise to hire a pest management professional to prevent the problem from getting bigger.

Bed Bug News Reports BedBugs in Alaska? Yes, and its …

Bedbugs are not a NEW problem in Alaska. The resurgence in the lower 48 is now a common occurance, but Bedbugs in Alaska my be not as well understood.

MrBedBug at work in the FLfresh LLC corporate offices.

Hello, my tasty-human friends. Im MrBedBug, Chief SpokesBug for FLfresh.com and EcoBugFREE, the BedBug Eliminator. I am a TV star on MrBedBug-TV on YouTube and Editor of the BedBug News Reports.com

Its only logical that BedBugs would be in Alaska. We only feed on tasty-humans, [as I say often in my blog-post and videos], but it takes a hardy BedBug to like living in Alaska just like it takes special humans.

BedBugs are hitch-hikers, so the increase in easy travel between Alaskan cities and the lower 48, increases the chances youll see a BedBug infestation in Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks or in the working wild. Its not all the fault of tourist. In the lower 48, I tell the tasty-humans its not the fault of homeless folks or no-tell-motels either. BedBugs have been around since human-time began..and we arent going anywhere, as long as you dont take our presence seriously.

This article in the Alaska Dispatch News doesnt have a very good photo. If you want to see a better example, Heres what a Bedbug looks like in your home.

BedBugs have nothing to do with your mattress. we were named BedBugs, because thats where we were most commonly found, before the invention of other cool places we like to hang-out. Bedbugs are common in movie theaters, airplane seats, taxis and busses, plus, Dr offices, assisted-living and hospital facilities, plus apartments, condos and single-family homes. Bedbugs will gather anywhere a tasty-human offers an all-you-can-eat buffet opportunity.

The GOOD NEWS? Bedbugs do NOT spread disease. They are more a social-outcast than a real medical emergency, but the sooner you recognize the signs of a new Bedbug infestation, the sooner you can clean-up the mess.

There are not enough cases of BedBugs in Alaska that gets you on the Top 50 Most Bedbug Infested cities list, but that doesnt mean you should not be aware of the problem. The Bedbug News Reports .com web pages are here to help you learn from the mistakes of others [and a few success cases too] You really can clean a Bedbug infestation with Do-It-Yourself tools [and a product called EcoBugFree, the Bedbug Eliminator] The one advantage you have cleaning a BedBug infestation in Alaska, is something not many other USA cities have thats REALLY cold temperatures. Its not the best way to kill BedBugs, but we have evolved to match human living contions. The most common whole house treatment in the lower 48 is a forced-heat treatment that raises the ambient temp to over 135-140 for several hours. BedBugs will die from extreme cold too, just like a human, so THAT option exist naturally in Alaska.

Before you start any treatment plan to remove Bedbugs in an Alaskan home, apartment or bunkhouse, do the research to find what will be most effective method in your specific situation. There is a LOT of folk-lore, myth and stupidity about Bedbugs on the internet. My team at BedbugNewsReports.com has tried to address these, one at a time, as we see them in press reports.

If you want to learn HOW TO AVOID BEDBUGS, Get the facts. All the latest research [and Battle plans from the Bedbug Wars] is compiled at http://www.FLfresh.com Get effective Tips and Tricks on how to avoid a Bedbug infestation in the first place, and learn the options you have to clean a BedBug infestation in your home or apartment/condo and workplace.

JT Eaton KILLS Insect Killer Spray 1 gal. For Bed Bugs …

I have tried all sorts of things to get this infestation under control. Bought a new vacuum cleaner and use it every night to vacuum the mattress and box springs before going to bed, put mattress and box springs in vinyl liners, bought all new bedding. So cleaning is not the solution.

I have tried blowing insecticide dust, UV-light, and other sprays. The sprays either promised to kill on contact or provide long-term results. Nothing worked.

As an test of the contact sprays, I have gleefully sprayed bugs and they stop. However, soon as the spray dries, they continue on like the rain has stopped and it is ok to come out and play. When I sprayed them using JT Eaton Kills Bedbugs Insecticide Spray (204-1G) in a spray bottle... one shot got them; they stayed dead. And this was on the spray setting... not stream.

So I bought a couple gallon size jugs with a sprayer and have blasted my bedroom and living room. I have sprayed the baseboards and floors for the rest of the house.

So I am sitting here over 24 hours later and for the first night in a month, I am bite free. This stuff works. Now I am going to buy the blue label stuff and repeat the application for long-term results.

Bed Bugs | Morgellons – A Mundane Approach

The biggest bedbug outbreak since World War II has officialsworried.

Dont worry, Im not going to turn my blog into yet another blog that posts all kinds of news stories. However this one, which has been simmering for a long time, offers some interesting insight into our condition. In the story below I have highlighted certain things that I will expand upon after you read the story (read the whole story, it is pretty frightening actually). My point is NOT TO IMPLY that bed bugs are involved in Morgellons, what is interesting here is the effect the bed bugs have on those they are plaguing. This is an extremely well written article.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcclatchy/20090515/sc_mcclatchy/3234191_1

WASHINGTON The biggest bedbug outbreak since World War II has sent a collective shudder among apartment dwellers, college students and business travelers across the nation.

The bugs reddish brown, flat and about the size of a grain of rice suck human blood. They resist many pesticides and spread quickly in certain mattress-heavy buildings, such as hotels, dormitories and apartment complexes.

Two shelters have closed temporarily in Charlotte, N.C. , because of bedbugs, a Yahoo chat group dedicates itself to sufferers and countless bedbug blogs provide forums for news, tips and commiseration. State inspectors say that more emphasis may be needed to tackle the creatures.

Federal officials have taken notice of the resurgence. Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency held its first-ever bedbug summit, and now a North Carolina congressman wants to take on the insect.

Democratic Rep. G.K. Butterfield just introduced legislation that would authorize $50 million thats already in the Department of Commerce budget to train health inspectors how to recognize signs of the insects.

The Dont Let the Bed Bugs Bite Act of 2009 also would require public housing agencies to submit bedbug inspection plans to the federal government. It would add bedbugs to a rodent and cockroach program in the Department of Health and Human Services. It also would require the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to research bedbugs impact on public mental health.

Butterfields letter to congressional colleagues about the legislation attracted lots of attention: It was topped with a full-color picture of the insect sitting on human skin.

Unfortunately, in recent years, the United States has seen a resurgence in bedbugs, the letter reads. Thats right theyre back in the sack and biting.

Bedbugs have hit hotels and homes in every state. The creatures are amazing hitchhikers, experts say, and easily travel in suitcases, boxes or packages. They can live for up to a year without food.

Apparently no state has a central reporting system for bedbugs, according to Butterfields office, and since the bug carries no known diseases, many health departments dont consider it a public health threat.

That leaves the critters falling through the cracks among regulators, said Michael Potter , an entomologist at the University of Kentucky and one of the countrys bedbug experts.

Most health departments say, Hey, we dont deal with bedbugs, Potter said.

Those whove suffered outbreaks say that the anxiety it induces can be debilitating. Potter said many sufferers tossed out furniture and could spend thousands of dollars on repeated treatments from pesticide companies. They call him about anxiety, insomnia, shame and the incessant annoyance of itchy red welts on their skin.

Theyre, like, ready to blow their brains out, Potter said. Its emotionally distressing. Anyone that has never had a bedbug problem is not one to judge whether were dealing with a medical, emotional public health issue.

In Congress , Butterfield first introduced his bill a year ago after hearing from a constituent whod brought bedbugs into her home from a hotel trip. The bill died in committee last year, but Butterfield aides say they hope that higher attention will help the measure this year.

The co-sponsors include Reps. Don Young , R- Alaska , Ben Chandler , D- Ky. , Bobby L. Rush , D- Ill. , Betty McCollum , D- Minn. , Corrine Brown , D- Fla. , Steve Cohen , D- Tenn. , Brad Miller , D- N.C. , and Eddie Bernice Johnson , D- Texas .

Butterfield also has received support from the National Pest Management Association , which says that bedbug calls to pest control companies are up 70 percent in the past five years.

Greg Baumann , a Raleigh, N.C. , pest control expert and the vice president of technical services for the National Pest Management Association , said that a decade ago few pest control companies dealt routinely with bedbugs.

Now its everyone today, he said.

Baumann said companies could use pesticides on the bugs but that they also tried such alternatives as extreme heat, freezing and isolating the insects through mattress covers.

Since the EPA restricted the use of several effective pesticides in the 1980s, bedbugs have built resistance to the chemicals that now are on the market, said Potter, the University of Kentucky entomologist. Public education is important, he said, but the industry also needs a good insecticide.

Whether that bill is going to solve the problem certainly its a start, he said.

Interesting isnt it? The Bed Bugs Bite Act of 2009 would require the CDC to study the impact of bed bugs on ones mental health. Why would that be? How strange a request, or is it? Listen to some of the descriptions those with a known infestation have (note, bed bugs to not live on ones body). People with bed bugs infestations suffer extreme anxiety to the point of being debilitating, insomnia, shame, tossing out furniture, and even wanting to as it says to Blow their brains out. I dont for a moment believe the comment that bed bugs dont carry disease though, any creature that feeds on blood spreads disease. However, and I must say this quote in its entirety floored me.

Theyre, like, ready to blow their brains out, Potter said. Its emotionally distressing. Anyone that has never had a bedbug problem is not one to judge whether were dealing with a medical, emotional public health issue.

Let me repeat this Anyone that has never had a bedbug problem is not one to judge whether were dealing with a medical, emotional public health issue.

If you are not a Morgellons sufferer let me ask you a personal favor and withhold your judgment on us for now. In fact, be glad your Morgellons free but dont for a moment take for granted that you will always be. Take a moment and think about what this article is saying about these folks that have a known problem with bed bugs. Now consider that a Morgellons sufferer feels these things under their skin and they are also terribly ill on top of it. Throw in a unknown cause, the fact that many on the forums we have known and loved have died, the fact that there is no known treatment, and finally that we are mocked by the very doctors sworn to help us and you have something far worse on ones mental health than merely having bed bugs. The truth is having a parasitical infestation (or something that feels like one Im not convinced Morgellons is a parasite at all) is incredibly scary at first, some never get over it and go over the edge, others simply cannot deal with it.

So, take a hard look at how having bed bugs is impacting those who have them. The truth is, you simply cannot fathom what it is we deal with, it cannot be explained such that one can truly ever really grasp the horror, and my hope is, you never have to know that horror. For those with bed bugs, my heart goes out to you.

To get rid of any bed bugs – Express.co.uk

Bed bugs are usually found in the crevices and joints of your mattress and feed on human blood.

While they are not dangerous and do not spread diseases they can be stressful to live with some people can experience reactions to their bites.

They can cause itchy red bumps on the skin and in more severe cases may cause a rash or fluid-filled blisters.

But how can you identify an infestation and what do they look like?

Adult bed bugs have small, flat, oval-shaped bodies and are wingless.

Their colour can vary between dark yellow, red or brown and are up to 5mm long.

To spot the bugs or their tiny white eggs, it is best to use a bright torch to check your mattress.

Bites on your skin, tiny black spots on your mattress and blood spots on your sheets from accidentally squashing them can be indications of an infestation.

So how do you get rid of bedbugs and how can you prevent an infestation?

The NHS suggests contacting your local council or a pest control firm thats a member of the British Pest Control Association or National Pest Technicians Association.

It writes on its website: A technician will carry out an inspection to confirm an infestation. They can then use special treatments such as insecticide, a steamer or rapid freeze system to get rid of the bugs.

It also suggests a number of steps you may be asked to carry out to help the problem.

The first, is to wash infested clothes or bed linen at 60C or put them in a dryer on a hot setting for 30 minutes.

Next, use a vacuum cleaner with a hose to suck up any bugs you can see. Proceed to dispose of the contents of the vacuum cleaner in a sealed bag.

Consider throwing away any mattress or furniture thats heavily infested.

Use plastic mattress covers that encase the entire mattress - this will stop any bed bugs getting in or out.

If youre looking to prevent bed bug infestations, make sure to inspect your mattress and bed regularly for signs of an infestation and get professional advice if you think you have bed bugs.

Avoid buying second-hand mattresses and carefully inspect second-hand furniture before bringing it in your home.

Finally, keep your bedroom tidy and remove clutter.

Do you have a bees nest in your home? This is how to get rid of one.
