FEMALE BEDBUGS ON THE MOVE…….(CENTRAL FALLS, RI)

Bed Bugs, bedbugs, RIThis blog post is more on the scientific side versus the humor side but it warrants mentioning. It does shed some light on why bedbugs are so difficult to control and why they are so efficient at spreading to surrounding units. Recent research has shown some interesting data on female bedbugs in particular. They often wander off away from the main infestation area. Female bedbugs do not release an aggregation pheromone (a scent that tells other bedbugs to come to the crack or crevice). By doing these things female bedbugs have shown the ability to expand the population range, establish new infestation sites, and exploit new objects in their environment.

In a nutshell, we have even more proof of how insects have the ability to adapt to their environment & survive. Unfortunately with bedbugs they actually thrive. In the attached image the unit was heavily infested. The spider web on the outside of the door was catching female bedbugs as they tried to wander away from the infestation. As you can see the spiders are opportunistic and eating quite well on the abundance of bedbugs.
