They are used to battling fires, but some Portsmouth firefighters are battling something else, bed bugs.

Deputy Fire Chief Jim Hoffler said the command staff learned of the bugs Sunday. “Anything that affects our people is a concern for us,” he said.

An exterminator found an adult and a nymph bed bug. One was found on a cloth recliner in fire station community TV room. The other was found on a mattress.

“So far it’s only been those two insects that they found, but we want to know if we have a bigger problem because our folks live here 24 hours at a time,” Deputy Chief Hoffler said.

He said at any given time there are up to 15 people at Station 1, including several fire companies and EMTs. He said crews at the busiest station in the city come in contact with many people on a regular basis, so it’s hard to know how bed bugs got into the building.

According to a pest services company, “They are getting worse around here.”

Bed bugs are hitchhikers. They are pests that go from one thing to the other, attracted to carbon monoxide and feeding on blood.

Getting rid of bed bugs is a hard task, even for the professionals, because they can get into any crack or crevice. Experts have many tools to exterminate, but heat – like putting your clothes in the dryer or even leaving them in a hot car – can help you get rid of the pests.
