BedBugs in Denver close West High School

Denver is on the list of the “Top 10 BedBug infested cities”, so it is no wonder that they’ve been found at West High School. BedBugs are “hitch-hikers”, so they will cling to any fabric that smells like a human…. moving from place to place, looking for the next meal. That meal is YOU, because the only food source for a BedBug is human blood.

BedBugs move from place to place looking for a reliable, convenient meal and a place to breed, just like humans. Robert Hancock, Professor at Metropolitan State University tells Jaclyn Allen of ABC7 News the story. The only solution to a BedBug infestation is to avoid the area, then work to KILL the BedBugs. Repellant sprays and 1/2 measures do NOT work. One single female BedBug can restart an infestation, so all the students and parents should be aware and learn what BedBugs look like. Watch for the signs of BedBug bites too, since there is no way to know how long the BedBugs were in West High School, before they were discovered. Small red insect-bite-mark are the first sign of a new infestation in your home. It’s important to take action, as soon as you suspect a BedBug infestation. It’s also important to know that BedBugs can be anywhere. They arrived at West High School from someone’s clothing or bookbag. They can leave and follow any child or teacher home, using the same travel-method.

Professor Hancock is correct. A school isn’t an ideal home for BedBugs, so they will look for a transport-host to help them travel to a new better “home”. Bedbugs […]

BedBugs in the Longmont Colo. Public library creates an interesting sign.

BedBug News discusses a LOT of press pieces about BedBugs. You all know that by now. It’s just what we do, but our interest is sometimes distracted by the “other” news included in the reporting the local folks do about Bedbugs. This report from Cori Rose at KUSA Channel 9News is an example.

This is one of the most [ho-humm, no excitement here] BedBug reports I’ve seen in a while. As I’ve mentioned on several occasions the “TV Consultants” love BedBug stories and tell local News Directors around the country that these stories are ratings “gold”. Nothing gets viewers to stay-up late for the local news like “BedBugs are in the Longmont Library. Stay tuned to find out which one”. LOL. In this case it looks like everyone got it about “right”. [except for the “door sign” I’ll mention in a minute. ]

Judith Anderson is the Longmont Public Library Director and she seems to have been well prepared. [I guess BedBugs in the Denver Library was a learning experience] Her staff knew what to look for, they had a plan in place and everyone just moved on. Good Job all around.

9 News reporter Cori Rose seemed to have the details down too, [unlike some local reporters we have “called out” for repeating myths and folklore]. The BIG news of this story is NOT the BedBugs, but the sign on the door. You’ve got to […]
