Prevent Bedbugs With These Simple Tips by gideonjeta(m): 3:03am On Oct 10, 2018
For the past few months, hostels of universities across Nigeria were plagued with the raid of bedbugs. As a result, students had to leave their hostels to seek temporary accommodation. While those who were lucky enough to have friends who lived off campus had options, others who weren’t so lucky had to wait it out and this involved having bed bugs as roommates.

And to each one, there was a conspiracy theory on why there was an infestation: while some blamed it on the dirty state of the hostel, some roommates bickered amongst themselves on who needed to pay more attention to personal hygiene.

These theories only show us that there is a lot about beg bugs we should know. Here are some of them:

Dirty environment
Living in a dirty environment is not a prerogative for them to dwell with you. Neither does being wealthy or poor. Although it does count for control measures, what matters is that there is blood feed in the area.

More people, more bedbugs
Bedbugs are more common in places where there is congestion of people. A hostel is a place where many people that live within, so are the people that come around. It could be anybody.

There are female and male bedbugs
Following the fact that bedbugs increase rapidly, people are of the notion that there are just female bugs are asexual. Contrary to that thought, the female bedbugs need the male bedbugs and are capable of laying one to twelve eggs per day which takes approximately six to seventeen days to hatch.

Bedbugs are hard to get rid of. Although the best way to control it is is to bring in a pest control professional, here are a few things you can do:

Avoid clustering of furniture to give them a little hiding place
Be careful when you travel; bedbugs are good hitchhikers. Check your luggage on arrival
While bedbugs have not been known to transmit any diseases, health issues that could arise from bedbugs range from infection to allergies and insomnia.

If you are dealing with bedbugs the best action is to call up the hostel reception immediately so they can act quickly and efficiently. There are many ways to get rid of bed bugs and the most effective solution is to hire a professional pest exterminator to get rid of bedbugs at your hostel. When, my brother was dealing with bedbug issues at his hostel, he had immediately called up the receptionist, where they had hired a Nassau pest control company. Then the exterminators had found bedbugs underneath the mattresses and cushions, between the sheets, and on carpeted floor in the hostels.
