BED BUGS IN LAS VEGAS AND HOW TO PREVENT THEM

 

Bed bugs are spreading in Las Vegas. From Henderson to Summerlin calls for eliminating bed bugs are up 50 percent from last year.

 

This past summer a study of the cities that had the largest increase in bed bugs was released today by USA Today and KTNV (Las Vegas channel 13) – Las Vegas was #3 on the list with an increase of complaint calls.

 

The Las Vegas bed bugs that infest people's houses are usually a species called Cimex Lectularius, but other species can cause an infestation as well. Bed bugs were almost completely eradicated from human habitats in developed countries around 1940, but recently infestations have been on the increase. Bed bugs usually "hitchhike" into a home on clothing, luggage, furniture, pets, or people and the infection spreads when the bugs feed and reproduce.

 

Las Vegas is one of the top travel destinations in the country, so exterminators say it's no surprise bed bugs are found in hotels, movie theaters, cars, airplanes and other high traffic areas -they like a controlled environment the same as we do.  When you do travelput your luggage on the rack and not on the floor. Also, hang your clothes. Don't just leave them around furniture or hotel dresser drawers.

 

The city's bed bug ranking isn't necessarily a bad thing. It means people are paying closer attention to these little bugs. Hotel companies, for example, are aggressively attacking bed bug problems before they spread.
