Bed bug profile

The spring season is one of the most popular times for families to travel! Between Spring Break and Easter families are often on the go more frequently. Cochnower Pest Control and The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) would like to remind families that are planning to get away to be aware of their surroundings.

Bed bugs can be easily transported from one place to another which means that it is easy to bring bed bugs back to your Lafayette, Indianapolis, or other area home after a trip. Bed bugs hitch hike their way from place to place in suitcases, purses, clothing, and more!

As a traveler it is important for you to recognize the signs of bed bugs which include:

  • Pepper-like stains on fabric covered items
  • Bed bug skins
  • Bed bugs themselves
  • White eggs

Our pest control company recommends that you check for these signs once you arrive at your destination. If you notice any of these signs in your rental or vacation room then you should request a change in accommodation.
