It has been three years since I last wrote on bed bugs. Last week Le Parisien  reported that nearly every day a resident is forced to throw out their infested mattresses.  Further RVIP a property management group told the publication that the bugs are coming from the United States. RIVP manager Oliver Perret said: “It’s been like this for two or three years,” RIVP group said that 20% of the 1,000 properties it oversees have dealt with bedbug infestations. The group told reporters that it had been deep-freezing infested furniture at -25C in order to get rid of them and they claim the technique is working.

My tips for minimising your exposure

  1. Check the Bed Bug Registry for Canadian and US bedbug sightings or registry at bedbugs.net for global info Screen Shot 2017-04-24 at 3.12.10 pm
  2. Peel back the bedding and check the seams of the mattress for traces of bedbugs — either bloodstains,  bugs themselves or  tiny pale poppy seed like eggs
  3. Don’t put your suitcase on any bed. Bags can get infested by bugs hitching a ride from infected bedspreads. Place bags on an un-upholstered piece of furniture.
  4. Keep your clothes in your case or hang them up instead of placing them in drawers

Have you had any bed bug experiences?
