At college the only things students should be concerned about are getting to classes on time and doing the best they can in those classes. There’s no way they can focus if bed bugs attack their dorm room. Soon they’ll be dealing with irritation and itching from bites, and their attempts at do-it-yourself methods will fail. Dorm rooms in Brooklyn, NY, that may be infested with bed bugs need the help of a bed bug exterminator company to get the job done properly.
Not Sleeping Well
A dorm room resident might be able to spot bed bugs when they come crawling as a fully-grown adult—especially one gorged on blood—is approximately apple-seed size, brown in color, and oval-shaped. The issue with detection is that usually these nocturnal bugs feed at night and occupants are likely to be sleeping then. Other telltale signs of a bed bug presence are: pearl-white or translucent eggs with a shiny exterior film that stick to surfaces, stains that are reminiscent of dark felt tip pen stains (bed bug feces), and transparent, shed skin that looks like adult bed bugs.

Not Just Beds
Bed bugs don’t just make a home of beds. Entire dorm rooms could be affected. The problem could have started outside the room. Unfortunately, bed bugs don’t mind a bit of travel. Occupants may sometimes unknowingly bring bed bugs from back home in boxes, suitcases, and bags. Unaware of the pests that lurk in their things, unpacking begins, and it’s not long before a perfectly pest-free dorm room and by extension, dormitory building, becomes infested. That’s why professional pest control is required to get started on a fix the moment bed bugs are detected.
