Just another day in the world of bedbugs! This is a massively infested box spring loaded with thousands upon thousands of bedbugs in all stages. If I had to guess I would say there were over 50,000 eggs on the mattress plus box spring and another 5,000 live bedbugs! Now you are probably asking yourself “WHY IN THE HELL WOULD SOMEONE TOLERATE THIS?” The honest answer is that I have zero clue!
The infestation was over a year old and they did not report it at all, they tried treating it themselves. Obviously quite unsuccessfully! Two adjacent apartments were getting bitten and that is how we uncovered this. In our company training we are taught that “pests do not know property lines” and we should always inspect adjacent units and areas. This does give you a glimpse into why bedbugs are such a major problem in society, a population grows out of control for one plus years then this person inadvertently shares the infestation wherever they go, then the bedbugs spread to adjacent units/areas, and before you know it you have a major outbreak.
With bedbugs it is like when you are sick, early detection & treatment are vital to beating the issue!
