Bed bugs, the most successful hitch-hikers since "Woodstock", are here to stay. With the ban of DDT in the 1970's, these little creatures have slowly made a resurgence, and their numbers are now reaching critical proportions. It was recently reported that 1 in 4 people either have, or know someone that has bed bugs. Because of their numbers during the Great Depression, many people falsely believe that bed bugs only affect homes with poor sanitation, or are found only in urban settings. Don't make the mistake...we've seen them in all socio-economic settings.
Airlines, cruise ships, public transportation, hotels/motels, movie theaters, dorms, schools, restaurants, retail stores, etc. have all been plagued.
If you've been unfortunate enough to have introduced these creatures into your home, Hershey Termite & Pest Control is here to help. Before you try a home remedy (and potentially make the issue worse), give us a call to schedule a consultation to evaluate your situation.
