NORTH BERGEN, N.J., June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The pest management industry's leading magazine, Pest Technology, published an article by Dr. Michael Potter of the University of Kentucky. In the article, he pointed out that people need to "Think like a bed bug" in order to try to prevent and kill bed bugs. This is so very true!
Like most things in life, getting the proper perspective is important in being able to get a handle on how to address a situation. In this instance, it was about how to learn more about bed bugs and how to better control them. The trade article focused on several major categories:
Biology Begets Behavior – Essentially knowing the behavior of a bed bug is important. Bed bugs require blood to feed and they cannot survive without it. Thus knowing that bed bugs will seek out a feeding target is important in knowing how to prevent them.
Love the One You're With – Bed bugs love to share small spaces and this is important when looking for a way to prevent them. The folds, seams and other areas in furniture and bedding become regular hiding places for bed bugs. In these areas, using EcoRaider is an ideal tool for killing bed bugs.
Conversations We Can't Hear – Bed bugs communicate through the use of chemical pheromones … this allows them to interact socially and aggregate in one area like a seam of a bed or a cushion of a couch. The pheromones also tell bed bugs that they are in a safe place, either by the chemicals release in the air or those that are left behind in the form of feces or dead skin.
Do Not Disturb – Not all bed bugs are seeking a blood source all the time. In between feedings they will communicate with each other trying to alert others to move when there is a threat. Bed bugs move more frequently when they have not fed as opposed to those who have fed. This helps us figure out how bed bugs move and why.
