After I and my wife went to bed, we started getting itches all over our body.

A one-day heat treatment to eradicate bed bugs began Tuesday morning at Niles Housing Commissions Gateway Plaza, 251 Cass St.

The Housing Commission contracted with Rose Pest Solutions, which has a Niles office at 2714 S. 11th St.

The treatment could last forever, depending on people, Roses Dan Najacht said. The shock is over, and people have learned to accept the fact that this is part of life right now. Bed bugs in the United States took a downturn in the 50s. Experts dont know why. With international travel, whether Canada, the Middle East or Europe, they got reintroduced and its taken off again.

It was here when I got here., said Phillip Thurston, who has been the executive director at the Plaza since April. My understanding is it was first discovered last fall and has been a continuing problem since that has not been eradicated. This is a tough critter and a national problem, but not just public housing. Educating tenants is the biggest thing. They seem earnest. Theyve got to pay attention to what they bring in to help us and to help each other because bed bugs are hitchhikers.

Thurston said the seven-floor complex contains 130 units, of which a sweep by bed bug-sniffing dogs determined about 20 are infested.

After treatment (120 to 140 degrees for four to six hours), were going to sit down and look at what measures make sense going forward, said Najacht, who has been in the extermination business for 17 years.

Rose, the oldest pest management company in America, was founded in 1860.

We may do canine sweeps as a preventive to catch apartments as they come along so they cant spread. Our goal is to get rid of them entirely in this high-rise community. The heat will kill adults and eggs. Its a great treatment.

There have been three meetings with tenants to inform them of things they need to do and be aware of about bed bugs.

Whats the Big Deal with Bed Bugs?

How could such a tiny insect be such a concern? These microscopic reddish brown parasites can grow up to a -inch in length. They will enter the home from luggage, furniture, clothing and even people. As the homeowner sleep, they will feed on blood and in order to continue growing, they need to continue feeding. Bed bug bites are visible to the naked eye and look like small sores that itch and are prone to infection. Once a bed bug infestation occurs, a female bed bug can lay 12 eggs per day and hatch up to 200 eggs in her lifetime inside the home. That means bed bugs will rapidly spread if they are not detected.

How BuggyBeds Works

Back in the day, the only way to find out bed bugs was to look for the tell-tale sores or have a professional inspection.

Once they enter into the glue, they are trapped until they die. By placing BuggyBeds in between the mattress and box spring, there can be peace of mind in knowing not only catching these blood-sucking parasites, but that it can be thoroughly detected if the home has an infestation problem. Once bed bugs are detected, contact a professional extermination service immediately to have the problem taken care of.

Bed Bugs – The Unwanted Holiday Travel Guest

Post date: January 23rd, 2013

ATLANTA, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Atlanta-based pest control leader Orkin reminds holiday travelers to look out for bed bugs because they can be a threat to you and your home, whether you are staying at a five-star hotel, visiting relatives or have friends and family visiting you. According to AAA, 43.6 million Americans are planning to take to the roads, skies and railways between Nov. 21 and Nov. 25. The Federal Aviation Administration lists the nation's 35 busiest airports, and 30 of those cities can be found on Orkin's top 50 bed bug cities list.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120315/CL71466 )

"Bed bugs are great hitchhikers, so you have to pay close attention when traveling," said Orkin Entomologist and Technical Services Director Ron Harrison, Ph.D. "Bed bugs can find their way into your luggage, whether it is in a hotel, on a plane, train or bus and eventually make their way back to your home. If you brought home just one bed bug, it could reproduce and get out of hand in just a few weeks."

One female bed bug can lay one to two eggs a day and up to 200 eggs in her lifetime. Routine inspections will lead to early identification, which is important to help lower the risk of a severe problem and the need for extensive pest control treatments. Typically, bed bugs come out at night to feed, but during the day, they are most likely found within a 5-foot radius of where people sleep.

Research from the University of Minnesota has also suggested bed bugs are attracted to dirty clothes, so keep them in a sealed bag or container.

"It appears that body odor is one cue for bed bugs that there could be a food source nearby," said Harrison. "It may be an evolutionary trait that leads them to your dirty laundry, which makes sense, so do everything you possibly can to ensure you do not attract bed bugs."

When traveling, Orkin suggests using the acronym S.L.E.E.P. to avoid taking bed bugs home with you.

"It is best to contact a licensed pest control professional if you think you have bed bugs," said Harrison. "You do not want to try and combat these pests yourself. Professionals can identify infestations using a variety of techniques like visual inspections, monitors, trained bed bug-sniffing dogs and DNA testing, in which common areas bed bugs are found can be swabbed and tested to confirm if bed bugs are present."

Robert Johnson — Business Insider

This is the only sign that marks the Vigilant Hotel.

There are not many places to stay in Manhattan if your prospects are dim and your funds are low.

It wasn't always this way. Once, Manhattan was pocketed with unseemly dives that for a few bucks a night would keep you dry and off the street.

One of the last of those is the Vigilant Hotel at the north end of Chelsea on 8th avenue between 28th and 29th.

Wedged between a small cafe and a Chinese restaurant, the Vigilant offers rooms for 40-bucks a night, or $140 a week. More or less anyone with an ID can get a cubicle within a large room, with no windows and no ceiling but a screen, to call their own. 

Anyone except journalists. 

I was prepared to spend the night at the Vigilant, but made the mistake of taking pictures of the entry on my way in. I didn't realize there were video cameras in the clerk's office, or that he would be so opposed to cameras — until I started taking pictures and a man started screaming.

"We don't want you here. Get the hell out or I'm calling the police."

I didn't think it was directed at me until I saw him. Halfway up the stairs a bald white man, about 70 years old, with no shirt and a flowing ascot of white hair around his neck leaned from a hole in the wall, pointed at me and hollered "Get the f*** out."

Clearly he was talking to me. I pushed onward.

"I have a reservation," I said, like this would somehow make him calm down. It did not.

"We don't take f******* reservations!"

I'd stopped in before to quickly look around and see what was what, so I knew what I was getting into, even when I'd called the day before to make sure there would be a room for me.

The clerk had needlessly warned me that the rooms weren't pretty, that what he offered were "Bowery style" rooms. No ceilings, little privacy, and no windows. "Like solitary confinement," he'd said on the phone.

"I feel properly warned," I'd replied before hanging up the phone in the office.

Robert Johnson — Business Insider

The rules at right are posted upstairs next to the office as well. Even if I'd seen the surveilance notice, don't think I would have believed it.

I wasn't there to write about the bedbugs or be a sanctimonious voyeur, and I wasn't prepared for him to be screaming at me. I was there to see how this one facet of the city looked before it was gone forever. Feeling justified I continued up the stairs to the clerk's window stuffing my camera into my backpack.

By the time I stood in front of the thick iron bars that secured him from the guests, he was apoplectic.

The bars were ornate, covered in what looked like 100 coats of tan paint. Without the semi-gloss, they looked like something from the movies shielding an Old-West bank teller from a pistol toting outlaw.

"I want to write a story on this place. On you. I know you've been here for 25 years. Don't you want to tell your story?" I spewed out between his threats.

"There ain't no story," he said leaning back in his chair and rubbing his bare, beach ball belly. "And I been here more than 25 years."

And he started talking. That bit about the 25 years, I'd picked up from dated stories about the place online. Obviously, he was concerned about more bad press. Fair enough.

"I just want to spend the night and see what it's like," I told him when he appeared to be calming down. 

"No you don't," he said. "This ain't a good place. The only people that stay here need to stay here," he said leaning forward. "And I ain't got nothin' to say."

For the next hour or so he told me that the Vigilant has been around since 1911 when they let rooms to mostly sailors and soldiers for five cents a night, doing a banner business between the World Wars.

After World War II, he told me that the garment industry put a lot of people in the hotel. "There used to be a lot of push-cart traffic," he said. "From the district over to the storefronts at Times Square. But all those jobs went to Asia."

The garment workers were gone by the late eighties and then the rooms were taken by "messenger types," he said. "But those jobs disappeared in the '90s after email and faxes came along."

Who stays here now?" I asked. He flared up. 

"People with no other f****** place to go. I ain't got nothin' to say."

About every fifth sentence was him telling me he had nothing to say. 

"It used to be this was a place people came on the way to something better," he told me between my questions. "Now it's the end of the line."

"We got a lot of people that lost their jobs a few years ago, but those benefits ran out. Our rates have gone up from $100 to $140 a week." He threw his hands up, and brought them back down to his round stomach, caressing its shiny round surface as he thought.

Robert Johnson — Business Insider

As far as I got with the camera.

"Forty bucks is a lot at this level," he said. "At this level even a little is too much."

His office was cluttered with aerosol cans of bedbug spray, takeout containers, and empty prescription bottles. A 17" monitor with the nine small surveillance screens that had given me away sat on his desk.

At one point a well-dressed, dark-skinned man, came up and told me. "This is a good place, and..."

The clerk re-ignited. "Arthur this f****** guy is not welcome on this property and I'll call the cops on both of you if you talk to him." Arthur shut up, and stood to the side for a while, holding a half-empty spray bottle in his right hand.

The clerk told me he didn't know how long they'd be able to stay open. The building is owned by a corporation that apparently works with the Vigilant, "But Con-Ed is putting us out of business," he said.

Utility rates may be what does the Vigilant in after over 100 years.

Feeling like all that was to be said had been said, and he wasn't going to let me a room, I stepped back as a man with dreadlocks, wearing a North Face shell and bike pants, excused himself to get past me.

He said the clerk's name and asked that his spray bottle be refilled. It was the same as the one Arthur held before he wandered off.

He hung the empty from the metal grate, and said he'd pick it up when he came back.

On the side in black marker, it said, "bed bug spray."

I said, "Everyone gets one of these when they check in." More a statement than a question, pointing to the empty bottle.

"Yeah," the clerk said reaching for the phone. "I told you, this ain't a good place. Now get out. I'm calling the cops."

He picked up the handset on an old black, push-button phone, and I stepped away holding up my hands.

"OK," I said, "Thanks for your time."

"Yeah, sure thing."

I faced a hallway of rooms on the way back to the stairs. Old wooden doors closing off a string of spaces about six-and-a-half feet high. Just big enough for a foam mattress and a cot. Open at the ceiling with black window screen peeking from the edges that faced the hall.

"Robert Johnson, right?" the clerk said through the hole in the wall on my way back down the stairs.

"Yes, sir." I replied looking up.

"Don't f****** come back."

LITTLE SILVER, N.J., May 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- BedBug Chasers, a World Class provider of heat remediation services and manufacturer of US made bed bug heat remediation equipment is franchising its service business. The business features a low entry cost, is a 100% chemical free and Green enterprise, and will be offered through the BedBug Chaser Franchise Corporation.

(Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120508/CG01754)

The cornerstones of this booming franchise program features exclusive access to the patented BedBug Chaser heaters, the BedBug Chasers nationwide rental fleet and training on the BedBug Chasers propriety process. The BedBug Chaser heaters have proven to show a higher ROI than other brands on the market by substantially decreasing treatment times and the ability to heat a larger square foot area per heater.

Outbreaks of bed bug infestations have been sweeping across the United States for the past 5 years in epidemic proportions. Bed bugs have gotten so out of control that the 111th Congress introduced bill H.R.2248 -- Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite Act where the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was tasked to investigate the public health implications of bed bugs on lodging and housing. That study centered around the impacts on mental health from bed bugs, their potential for spreading infectious disease, and their contributing to other diseases such as asthma. All studies thus far have agreed that "heat" is one of, if not the safest and most effective way to kill all stages of bed bugs including nymphs and eggs. This further reinforces the time is now for a business like BedBug Chasers to franchise.

In recent times, the media has reported on stories about "super chemical resistant" bed bugs and the dangers that many chemicals pose to people who are exposed to them. BedBug Chasers has researched and developed an eco-friendly and cost effective way to put an end to these chemical resistant bed bug infestations and is making that solution available through its franchise program.

We caught up with VP of Operations Larry Smith to discuss the franchise offering, "BedBug Chasers is the only complete franchised business system to kill bed bugs on premises with 100% chemical free Green electric heat remediation. No other company has all the pieces that we have; manufacturing, proprietary equipment, continued product development and scalability through our rental network. This puts us on Top and in a position to soon be the largest bed bug killing business in the US. Our ROI and Cost per kW is such that BedBug Chasers franchisees can compete dollar for dollar with a properly done chemical treatment, which we all know does not always work. BUT our heat does, every time. BedBug Chasers will become a top rated franchise in a very short time frame because you don't have to be an exterminator to do this. In many states there is no special license required so this is the perfect opportunity for returning Veterans, middle management caught up in downsizing or tradesman looking to become entrepreneurs!"

About BedBug Chasers:

BedBug Chasers is a nationwide heat remediation franchised sales, service and rental company providing a 100% Green and Chemical-Free alternative to eliminating bedbugs and other insects in commercial, residential and industrial environments. Using its proprietary, state of the art electric heat technology, BedBug Chasers equipment is capable of facilitating fast, effective and inexpensive heat remediation services throughout the United States.

Bed Bug Picture | How Can I Get Rid Of Bed Bugs

Post date: January 22nd, 2013

Lately, bed bugs have been given a lot of publicity, and are a hot topic of conversation in many cities. New York, as well as other cities, has recently experienced an epidemic of the pesky creatures. News channels have done reports on bed bug infested motels. A internet search for bed bug pictures will produce hundreds of results, images of bed bugs themselves and of the bites you get from them.Since bed bugs have received so much attention, there is a lot of fear surrounding the contracting of them. There is good reason for this anxiety. Bed bugs are difficult to get rid of, and getting rid of them can be cost money and property.Most people are embarrassed when they have bed bugs, because they feel that people will think they are dirty. The truth is that anyone can end up with bed bugs, no matter how clean they are. There are lots of ways they can be contracted. Here are a few.Picking up furniture from the curbIf you need a mattress, and you see what looks like a perfectly good one sitting on the curb, you might be tempted to pick it up. Before you do, however, consider the fact that it was thrown out for a reason. That reason could have been bed bugs.Sleeping somewhere unfamiliarThe term "fleabag" motel could just as soon be changed to "bed bug motel." So before you accompany a shady character to a one night stand in a motel (or apartment, for that matter), with dingy curtains and stained sheets, think twice. At the very least, do a thorough check of the sheets before you lie down, looking for any little blood spots (an indication of bed bugs) or the bugs themselves. They come out around two or three a. M., and some of them are visible to the naked eye.Secondhand ClothesAlthough most thrift stores launder clothes before selling them, there is no guarantee that this has happened. Also, a wash cycle alone will not necessarily kill the bugs. Heat is needed to ensure that they have been killed. Therefore, before wearing second hand clothes, you should dry them for a least 40 minutes on the highest temperature cycle on your dryer.Bed bugs in the buildingThis is one way that many apartment dwellers contract the bugs. Even if you yourself have taken precautions and have not brought them in from anywhere else, it is possible that your building could be infested. Through no fault of your own, the bugs could find their way to your apartment through the walls.If you suspect that you are being bitten by bed bugs, look for bed bug pictures. Compare your bites to the ones in the images. Also, try to wait up at night and see if you spot any of the critters. If you catch the problem early, you can minimize your costs and losses. Finding out if you have them is the first step.
