It’s that time of year again. Whether it’s barbequing with friends, going to the beach or lake and in general getting together with family and friends for the 4th of July, people will be on the move. You know who else is looking forward to the summer travels? Your old friend the bed bug. With so many people moving about, they will be hitching rides and seeing the good old USA via your suitcase or back pack. You know what else they like about this time of year? They love the heat. That’s right, as temperatures rise into the dog days of summer, bed bug activity increases as well.
That’s right, bed bugs love the heat and it gets them feeding and breeding faster. That means your infestation will grow and get out of hand faster during the summer months. This is also the time of year most people are doing their traveling. So as you move around this summer, pay attention to your surroundings and always be vigilant of bed bugs. They are one house guest that does not like to leave.
