Bed Bug Information in Alameda County
Alameda Vector Control has a lot of great information related to bed bugs. In their website, they’ve stated:
“Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius) have become a serious problem worldwide and within Alameda County. Their resurgence is mainly due to insecticide resistance and their tendency to hitchhike to new locations on international travelers.
“In Alameda County bedbugs are now considered a major nuisance pest. They have been found in apartment complexes, college dormitories, homeless shelters, hotels, and residences.
“Bed bug populations can spread dramatically when tenants move their infested furnishing between apartments and housing units. Bedbug infestations are notoriously difficult to control because they occupy the tiniest cracks, crevices and seams of furniture. They are capable of inhabiting spaces between walls, and can move from room to room.“
Alameda County has bed bug videos, recommendations for treatment, bed bug biology factsheets, and other really helpful information. You can access all of their resources here: https://acvcsd.org/programs-services/bed-bugs/
How do I know if my home is infested with bed bugs?
If there are bed bugs in your house, you may notice itchy welts on your or your family’s skin. You may also see the bed bugs or evidence of their presence, such as small bloodstains from crushed bed bugs or dark spots from bed bug droppings. Bed bugs are found most often around areas where a person sleeps or rests. These areas include: on or near beds and bedroom furniture; in the tufts, seams, and folds of mattresses and daybed covers; and in clutter around sleeping areas.
In more severe infestations, bed bugs may spread to cracks and crevices in bed frames and box springs and be found behind headboards, inside nightstands, and behind baseboards, pictures, and moldings. It is important to inspect furniture adjacent to sleeping areas for the presence of bed bugs, as well as behind loosened wallpaper. Bed bugs may also hide in piles of books, papers, boxes, and around pet sleeping areas.
Should I report a bed bug infestation to local authorities?
Yes. Bed bugs are considered a public health nuisance and when found in hotels, prisons, nursing homes, hospitals and public transportations should be reported to the local county health or environmental health department.
You can get more information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention bed bug webpage.
