Ozone Park, NY, October 28, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Moving Right Along Services Inc., has helped a 217 + unit Manhattan Co-op rid themselves of Bed Bugs. The board of directors didn’t hesitate when confronted with the city’s newest scourge. They took action against the bloodsucking pests – swift, coordinated, ruthless, expensive and in the end effective action. Every co-op and condo board should take notice of what is happening at this property, a linked trio of 10 + story brick towers built in 1923 as a residence hotel. Moving Right Along’s specialized division, Bed Bug-Busters, came in and packed everything in the basement storage lockers into air permeable containers. The containers were then removed and loaded into fumigation chambers and transported to Bed Bug-Busters’ facility in Ozone Park, Queens, NY. Here, fumigation specialist Bed Bugs and Beyond injects a fumigant – Sulfuryl Fluoride – commonly known as Vikane to rid the shipment of Bed Bugs no matter how big or small – even the eggs. Meanwhile the origin was treated thoroughly. “If we let those bugs move into this building, it’s going to cost us way more than the money we’re spending” says board vice president Rose Keough, who also sits on the Co-op’s Bed Bug Committee. This multipronged treatment plan was hammered out by Jeff Eisenberg, President of Pestaway, Inc., and spelled out at a building wide meeting last September. Jim Rueda, owner of Moving Right Along Services, Inc., was part of the panel addressing tenants’ concerns. Part of this approach also involved contracting K-9 Bed Bug Detectives to bring in a new Bed Bug - Sniffing Beagle named Russell – “we’re so proud that we’ve taken care of it” says Keough. In fact, pest control experts will tell you that the worst thing you can do after sighting Bed Bugs is to procrastinate or go into denial. Since a female Bed Bug can lay up to 500 eggs during her lifetime – and since the eggs hatch after incubating for 1 to 3 weeks – a co-op or condo board needs to take prompt and forceful action as soon as there is a Bed Bug sighting.
