Hello, my tasty-human friends. I’m MrBedBug, Chief SpokesBug for FLfresh.com and EcoBugFREE, the BedBug Eliminator. I am a TV star on MrBedBug-TV on YouTube and Editor of the BedBug News Reports.com

It’s only logical that BedBugs would be in Alaska. “We” only feed on “tasty-humans”, [as I say often in my blog-post and videos], but it takes a hardy BedBug to like living in Alaska… just like it takes special humans.

BedBugs are hitch-hikers, so the increase in easy travel between Alaskan cities and the “lower 48”, increases the chances you’ll see a BedBug infestation in Anchorage, Juneau, Fairbanks or in the working “wild”. It’s not all the fault of tourist. In the “lower 48”, I tell the “tasty-humans” it’s not the fault of homeless folks or no-tell-motels either. BedBugs have been around since human-time began…..and we aren’t going anywhere, as long as you don’t take our presence seriously.

This article in the Alaska Dispatch News doesn’t have a very good photo. If you want to see a better example, Here’s what a Bedbug looks like in your home.

BedBugs have nothing to do with your mattress. “we” were named BedBugs, because that’s where we were most commonly found, before the invention of other cool places we like to hang-out. Bedbugs are common in movie theaters, airplane seats, taxis and busses, plus, Dr offices, assisted-living and hospital facilities, plus apartments, condos and single-family homes. Bedbugs will gather anywhere a “tasty-human” offers an all-you-can-eat buffet opportunity.

The GOOD NEWS? Bedbugs do NOT spread disease. They are more a social-outcast than a real medical emergency, but the sooner you recognize the signs of a new Bedbug infestation, the sooner you can clean-up the mess.

There are not enough cases of BedBugs in Alaska that gets you on the “Top 50 Most Bedbug Infested cities” list, but that doesn’t mean you should not be aware of the problem. The Bedbug News Reports .com web pages are here to help you learn from the mistakes of others [and a few success cases too] You really can clean a Bedbug infestation with Do-It-Yourself tools [and a product called EcoBugFree, the Bedbug Eliminator] The one advantage you have cleaning a BedBug infestation in Alaska, is something not many other USA cities have … that’s REALLY cold temperatures. It’s not the best way to kill BedBugs, but “we” have evolved to match human living contions. The most common “whole house” treatment in the ”lower 48” is a forced-heat treatment that raises the ambient temp to over 135-140 for several hours. BedBugs will die from extreme cold too, just like a human, so THAT option exist naturally in Alaska.

Before you start any treatment plan to remove Bedbugs in an Alaskan home, apartment or bunkhouse, do the research to find what will be most effective method in your specific situation. There is a LOT of folk-lore, myth and stupidity about Bedbugs on the internet. My team at BedbugNewsReports.com has tried to address these, one at a time, as we see them in press reports.
