Bed Bugs Melbourne
Bed Bugs are becoming an ever more common problem in Melbourne.
Some reports suggest there has been a 5000 % increase in cases since 2000. But what is leading to this dramatic explosion in Melbourne’s bed bug population?
Well, the truth of the matter is that this rapid growth in bed bug cases is not just a problem for Melbourne residents. Over the last two decades, it has been a worldwide epidemic and we cannot see any sign of this trend slowing down.
The Increase in Tourism and Travel
Bed Bugs are very clever at jumping from host to host. So when we travel and sleep in a hotel, hostel or host bed that has bed bugs or even have our luggage stored next to someone else’s contaminated luggage, bed bugs can attach themselves to you and your belongings and make it all the way back to your home without being recognised, They will quickly spread and be very difficult to eradicate. If you travel regularly you can protect yourself from bringing bed bugs back to your home with these Bed Bug Luggage Encasements.
The Increase In High Density Living
With more apartment living and high density residential developments, it is becoming easier for bed bugs to move from one home to another. All it takes is one bed bug to take the journey from a neighbouring apartment or house, and within days they begin to spread like wildfire. Bed Bug Barriers are the most effective products on the market to stop bed bugs from entering your home, or moving from one room to another.
Bed Bug Resistance To Pest Control
Pest control companies have been using essentially the same insecticide chemicals to treat bed bugs for many decades. And in this time bed bugs have adapted and evolved to become almost completely resistant to the chemicals used by most local pest control companies. You may have heard horror stories of people spending thousands of dollars on toxic pest control treatments only to wake the very next day with more bites and marks from the bloodsucking bed bugs. Bed Bug Killer Powder is clinically tested to have a 100% mortality rate on bed bugs and when used with the complete Bed Bug Barrier system.
So now we know why there are so many bed bugs in Melbourne homes and accommodation businesses. The next step is knowing how to get rid of them.
