Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite!

August 19th, 2010 No Comments

Bed bugs have been making the news lately. A movie theater in Times Square was recently closed down to treat an infestation. An apartment building in Fort Worth, Texas was forced to close down after a year-long battle. Bed bug calls to exterminators in Seattle have increased 70 percent in the past two years. For the elderly, bed bugs can be more prevalent: the Department of Entomology at the University of Kentucky found that 18% of all bedbug infestations occur in nursing homes. The bugs are attracted by the heat and chemicals humans produce. Residents of nursing homes stay in bed for long periods of time and live in close proximity to each other, thereby raising the risk of a bed bug infestation.

“I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how important it was for my father to receive care from your employees during his final months. He grew to be especially fond of Henrietta B., who provided professional service as well as companionship and real comfort to my father as well as to my sister and myself during the last days of his life.”
