I love everything about Toronto : great food, great entertainment, beautiful people and a great vibe. But all of that in the shadow of a growing problem that has become an epidemic. Toronto Public Health reported a 1,000% increase in the number of bedbug complaints. This is no joke!
Then I found out that is an epidemic that happening across North America and the rest of the world.
Bedbugs are blood sucking insects that are related to cockroaches. DDT nearly made them extinct in the 1950’s, but it almost made us extinct too. They are tiny as infants and are difficult to detect with the naked eye. They feed on blood and prefer humans to any other creature. They have been around since the dawn of time, but our forefathers had everyday means of limiting their spread.
They move quickly from place to place, travelling on clothing and in luggage or furniture. You can catch them anywhere and once you get home they multiply quickly and spread throughout your living area. Your landlord, neighbors and friends aren’t going to admit that they have them because they feel humiliated. They move through a city with no respect for social standing, economic status or geography.
When you discover bedbugs, do not throw your belongings in the garbage. This is extremely costly and there is no guarantee that the bugs will not return and destroy your next crop of stylish garments. As a matter of fact, this will only increase their proliferation. There are effective solutions.
Start by cutting off their FOOD SUPPLY-YOU! Encase your bedding with a Lab Tested Mattress Cover for bed bugs, pillow encasements and a box spring encasement. They are very affordable and effective.
Then trap them, lure them or cook them with steam. It is not difficult to lock them out of your life. Be reactive or proactive, but Rest Assured.
