)-- Bed Bugs are creating havoc for apartment dwellers even if they themselves don’t have them. It has been reported that bed bugs quickly can infest a dwelling and even worse, they are developing a resistance to common Pest Control Operator treatments, having people even more on edge. All it takes is for the word to get out that a fellow tenant has bed bugs or is believed to have them and panic settles in. These creatures are known to travel through the smallest openings in electric outlets, floor-board cracks and wall voids. Personal hygiene does not make a difference either - Bed Bugs will move in whether you maintain a clean or messy home. These concerns have become nightmares for apartment and hotel managers. Their objective is to isolate the infestation which requires several treatments and, unfortunately, no guaranteed results. Further complicating this dilemma is if the apartment is crowded with the resident’s belongings. Some of these belongings provide excellent hiding and cannot be treated with insecticides. This prompts the questions – What is one to do? Who is one to call? Fortunately for hundreds of New Yorkers Jim Rueda, the owner of Bed Bug – Busters, has been answering that question by providing a 100% guaranteed solution – off-site fumigation of an apartment’s contents providing total elimination. Their service has been lauded by apartment and hotel managers, dwellers and loved ones of infested family members. Bed Bug – Busters’ personnel recognize the emotional trauma that people have had to endure. They will go into an apartment, pack up and carefully wrap everything in plastic in order not to spread the problem while removing the items from the building.
Everything is then loaded into specially designed fumigation vaults and fumigated with Vikane Gas – a colorless, odorless and tasteless fumigant that leaves absolutely no residue and is perfectly safe. “You can eat off the plates,” Jim says. This has proven to be totally effective as it kills Bed Bugs in all stages of life, including and most importantly the eggs. Afterwards the items can be stored or redelivered to a new location or to the original location if the premises were treated by a Pest Control Operator. Furthermore, Jim says, “People that are on the move don’t realize that this should be a huge concern. Moving is the 3rd most stressful thing in life and this just brings it up a notch. Previous studies have concluded that moving vans have helped spread Bed Bugs. This is a classic example of a service that is needed but people just don’t realize they need it.” Bed Bug – Busters is poised to answer this need as they have the proper licensing and insurance to provide a professional moving and storage service that can arrange for the contents of a home to be fumigated while in transit. The only drawbacks are that it extends the relocation process approximately 36 hours and that plants cannot be treated. But another plus is that the process will also kill any other type of bug you might have such as moths or roaches. Another area of growth, Jim says, is that co-op and condo boards as well as apartment managers may require new tenants to fumigate their shipments prior to moving in.
