Bed bugs love to be where there are lots of humans living in close quarters. Sounds just like college dorms, right? Colleges happen to be one of the fastest growing segments of the pest control industry’s long list of problematic areas for bed bug infestations.
Yes, when you send your kids off to school, there are lots of worries. Grades, partying, risky behavior, etc. and you hope that all you have taught them up until now is adequate to protect them in this stepping stone to complete independence. But did you really think that parasites would be on the top of the list of worries when moving into the dorm? Well, if it isn’t at the top of the list, it should certainly be in the top three major concerns because this is a serious issue that won’t be going away.
A quick report on Bed Bugs 101 – they are nocturnal parasites that feed on the blood of mammals, preferably human. They are about the size of an apple seed at maturity, they are incredibly adept at hiding and concealment, and they have the ability to live up to a year between feedings. Yes, an entire year can go by between venturing out to feast on students. They actually do not bite – they suck – utilizing two mouth parts, one injects an anesthetic so you are unaware and the other is a straw-like mouth part that is injected to suck your blood. They are generally considered non-disease carriers but recent scientific studies have concluded bed bugs can carry MRSA. Since there has not been appreciable research on bed bugs in more than 50 years, it seems plausible that a creature that injects a body part into more than one human’s blood supply would surely be able to transmit something.
