PREVENTING BED BUGS IN BROOKLYN, NY WITH TOP BED BUG CONTROL
Over the past decade, neighborhoods all the way from DUMBO down to Coney Island have continued to fill with young, hip residents. A community passionate about travel, there's no surprise that the popular borough has seen another uptick in bed bug infestations in the past years. Common throughout New York City for decades, bed bugs hitch a ride most often on suitcase, shoes, and clothing after while journeying abroad. Combined with the bed bug's extreme resiliency and ability to spread from apartment to apartment, Brooklyn becomes prime grounds for their return time and time again. NY Bed Bug Dogs are here to catch a possible infestation long before it spreads, using a chemical-free method for literally sniffing out their homes and hiding places.
What is a bed bug?
These tiny, difficult-to-detect parasites commonly hide in the crevices of furniture, clothing and of course, mattress. Brown or red and only up to a 1/4 of an inch in size, these creatures produce an anesthetic that keeps you from knowing that you're even getting bitten. Able to live for months without feeding and with the ability to reproduce quite quickly, apartments and densely populated neighborhoods become an obvious place for them to set up shop before making themselves known.
