Ozone Park, NY, September 10, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Bed Bugs are back with a vengeance and they have become the city’s newest scourge. This has sparked a bed bug paranoia that has a lot of people bugging out. Owner Jim Rueda says “that people on the move should be concerned about the mover they use as previous studies have concluded that moving vans have helped spread the problem.” A mover must be proactive and able to assure the shipper that his shipment will not be infected. The best line of defense is a good offense and fumigating the shipment while in transit is just that. Utilizing Vikane, a fumigant that is colorless, odorless and tasteless, is 100% effective (if the shipment is properly packed, wrapped and loaded) at killing Bed Bugs in all stages of life - even the eggs. There is no residue whatsoever. The only drawback is that the relocation process from origin to destination is delayed 36 hours. The wait is well worth it as it also rids you of any other type of bugs you might have. “But if your schedule does not permit the delivery delay,” Jim says. “at least you will have the peace of mind knowing that your shipment is being transported by a licensed, insured and professional mover who routinely fumigates their equipment.” Mayor Michael Bloomberg has even recently created a 10 member bed bug advisory board to produce recommendations on dealing with infestations in residences and institutions, disposing of infested items such as clothing and furniture; and creating a list of rights and responsibilities for landlords, tenants & homeowners. Information about bed bugs is becoming more plentiful and easier to find. The bed bug registry for instance, has a detailed website (www.BedBugRegistry.com
) that offers a report of bed bug infestations in Hotels and apartment buildings across North America. Moving is the 3rd most stressful thing in life and this just brings it up another notch. Jim Rueda has also been hearing talk of building managers requiring new tenants to have their shipment fumigated prior to moving in. Should this become the norm, Jim says, our firm will be poised to help people move right along.
