MRSA and Bed Bugs | Bed Bug Removal Guarantee

MRSA is a dangerous bacteria usually acquired from hospital visits. It often happens when a person has a cut or bite, such as those you might find from bed bugs. It’s not the bite itself that causes the problem, it’s scratching the bite and causing an infection that brings you to the hospital and eventually in contact with the MRSA Virus (although not really a virus, it’s a strain of bacteria Staphylococcus aureus).

When you catch MRSA and have not been in a hospital, such as a bed bug infested apartment complex, it’s called Community Associated MRSA or CA-MRSA for short. (more…)

Is The Cure For Bed Bugs Worse Than The Pests?

Bloodsucking bed bugs have made a comeback in recent years. But as victims of infestation have become increasingly desperate to rid their homes of the bedeviling pests, many have only done themselves more harm.

Bed bugs do not transmit disease or cause illness — but the insecticides used to kill them do. A total of 111 illnesses associated with bed bug-related insecticides were reported in seven states between 2003 and 2010 (mostly in the last three years), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said. Most cases of poisoning were not severe, but the data included one death. (more…)

Minnesota Bed Bug Infestation, Part III

Think you might have bed bugs?  See below for additional answers to your questions.

Bed bugs look similar to wood ticks.  They are small (about 1/16 to 1/4 inch long), brown or tan and oval-shaped.  They do not have wings.  After feeding, the bed bug will change from brown in color to purplish red, much like a wood tick, and the average life span of a bed bug is just short of a year, or about eleven months.  Bed bugs mostly hide in rooms where people sleep.  They can be found under the box spring of your bed, in and around a mattress and in and around a bed frame.

If you have noticed red, itchy bites which often occur in rows on your body and/or red stains on your sheets and/or bed, it’s time to call Eco Tech for a free consultation.  We will do a full inspection to diagnose the problem and start immediately with our organic treatment of the infestation.  We offer 24/7 emergency service and serve the entire Twin Cities Metro Area.  Please, don’t delay.  The longer you wait to treat the bed bug infestation, the further the bed bugs will spread.

Bed Bug

You may remember that old saying, “Don’t let the bed bugs bite!”  We were always taught that bed bugs don’t really exist any more and not to be scared of them.  Well, they are back.  Due to a resurgence of bed bugs in the United States, infestations have become an issue in recent years.

While bed bugs are known to carry several diseases, research has shown they do not transmit any to humans.  Bed bugs do not care how clean or dirty the home they infest is; they are just looking for food.  Bed bugs feed on human blood, much as a wood tick does.  They are nocturnal creatures, and very shy.  They normally venture out of, say, a bed when they do not detect any movement.  This is why most people bitten by bed bugs have been bitten at night while sleeping.  Bed bugs travel to your home on your clothing and in your bags after visiting a hotel or another family’s home with an infestation.  They are at five-star hotels and $10.00-a-night places; they have moved in, and they travel fast.

If you think you may have a bed bug problem, call Eco Tech today.  We offer 24/7 emergency service and serve the entire Twin Cities Metro Area. Just call us at 763-785-1414 for more information.  With our free consultation, we will diagnose the problem immediately and begin our organic treatment of the infestation.  Eco Tech, your “green, clean pest control solution”.
