New York, NY, June 20, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Pest Away Exterminating, the premier bed bug strategist to New York City and the world, has recently determined that by the end of 2011 more than 80% of New York's properties will have contracted bed bugs at least one time, with many of the buildings experiencing recurrent infestations. As of right now, there are no more than three degrees of separation between you and someone who has had these tiny vampires in their home.
The landlords and managers of these buildings are besieged with ongoing pleas from sleepless residents because these insects are not only extremely difficult find, but prey on residents in their beds as they sleep. While the big numbers are bad, the worst part is on a human scale - the way sufferers are stripped of their normal lives.
Sometimes it takes months for people to realize they have bed bugs. By the time they've wrapped their brains around reality, they have a full-scale infestation. Then they feel scared and helpless - without reliable information or help, they are prey to a growing breed of charlatans who capitalize on their fear and ignorance, needing repeated exterminations because of mishandled jobs.
"The city, the country and the world are in the grips of an epidemic.A bed bug epidemic," says Jeff Eisenberg, president of Pest Away Exterminating. People around the country are quickly realizing that bed bugs are not just a NY epidemic nor a big city problem. These blood suckers are rapidly entrenching themselves in suburban and rural communities throughout the country. Everyone is at risk; kids can bring them back from school, parents can get them on business trips, nannies or workers can bring them into homes, even gym lockers could harbor these pests.
Unfortunately, the problem is getting precipitously worse each year.
One conservative estimate puts sightings up more than 70% nationwide since 2007. Yet there is little real or substantive information on the internet and in the media, leaving Pest Away to field hundreds of calls a week from the US, Canada and Europe.
