Although some cockroaches may not choose to eat certain bait, it’s very important to find the epicenter or breeding ground of the colony.  As the article states, they can begin to reproduce at a very early age, so the sooner you attack them at the source the better off you’re going to be. 

An interesting line in this article refers to the chance a cockroach may hitch a ride home with you in your shopping bag.  Sounds like the Bed Bug and the Cockroach are getting creative to find ways to infest your homes! 

Bed Bugs Hitting the Road

Interesting article on FoxNews.com…about bed bugs and how they can hitch a ride on just about anything.http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2013/05/23/bed-bug-increasae-threat-to-motorists/?intcmp=HPBucket

Make sure you are aware of what the signs of Bed Bug infestations are.  You certainly don’t want these coming home with you after a trip.

Here are some simple things to look for:

  • Stains from Human Blood and Bed Bug Feces
  • Sheds from Bed Bug Skin
  • Eggs or Larvae 

To look for the actual bug is difficult because they are very small and typically come out at night to feed on you when you’re sleeping.  Nasty, I know… but it’s better to know this and identify it before it’s too late. 

If you decide to look for the actual bugs you may want to start with the mattress seams, baseboards and any cracks around the bed.  Bed Bugs typically stay close to beds because they don’t like to travel too far away from a meal… unless they like the taste of your blood and decide to hop in the car with you to make the trip back to your home.
