Bed Bugs On The Rise Throughout Arkansas
March 29, 2013
Throughout Arkansas including Little Rock, Fayetteville and Hot Springs, bed bugs are continuing to infest homes and businesses, which means that everyone is at risk of bringing bed bugs home. While it used to be mainly via international travel and staying in hotels, now bed bugs can find their way into your home from a library book or even at the movie theater. With this in mind, many Arkansas homeowners are wondering how to prevent bed bugs from getting into their home. The good news is that the team at McCauley Services is ready to help you get rid of bed bugs in the event that they do find their way into your home. And even better, we have a few bed bug prevention tips to share as well.
Prevent bed bugs in Arkansas:
Inspect your child’s backpack after school and your own bags for any signs of bed bugs. Daily inspections can stop bed bugs before they have a chance to spread throughout the home.
If you have company over to stay, be sure to wash the bedding right away to kill any bed bugs or eggs that may have arrived with your guests.
Vacuum regularly to help prevent bed bugs from embedding into carpet or even upholstered furniture.
Remove clutter from within the home. Because bed bugs are already great at hiding, added clutter can make bed bug identification nearly impossible for homeowners.
Before traveling, make sure to read our blog about preventing bed bugs on vacation.
