Just when you thought a sunburn and mosquito bites were the only thing you had to worry about in South Florida, scientists have recently announced that tropical bed bugs have made a reemergence after being gone for nearly 60 years. These nasty little creatures have been spotted in Broward County and can spread faster than the ordinary variety of bed bug sometimes found in dirty hotels.
In Florida, we have all of the right conditions to potentially help spread tropical bed bugs. As long people travel and mov bed bugs around, there is a serious potential for these bugs to spread and establish in homes and other dwellings. Don’t let this happen to you! Here’s what you need to know about bed bugs to recognize an infestation before it gets out of control:
- Bed bugs are more likely to be found in buildings where many occupants sleep or where there is frequent turnover, which is why you often hear about them in motels or college dorms.
- Bed bugs tend to group where people sleep more than any other part of the home. They love hiding out in the bed frame, mattress, and box springs.
- Bed bugs are attracted to and like warmth. They are known to enter laptops, tablets, and DSL ports, which also happen to be portable objects that you carry around to other rooms and locations. If they’re inside, you might inadvertently carry bedbugs along for the ride!
