Nature’s little “hitchhiker”

The hitch-hiking Bed Bug has become a perpetual concern and in some cases, a nightmare for the hospitality industry. Every country in the world is now dealing with Bed Bugs. They can easily be transported from a far country or from room to room by an unsuspecting human host, or one’s personal belongings. The daily routine of changing out linens can increase the frequency of room-to-room transference. The hotel industry has no way of preventing a Bed Bug transplant from taking place on a day-to-day basis. Pest inspection, then treatment, can clear a room today yet the Bed Bug can transplant itself back into the same room tomorrow, opening the establishment to yet another patron’s complaint, loss of revenue and undesirable publicity… if not worse! In 2010 alone there was a 300% increase in Bed Bug incidence, with no end in sight. The Night Stick drastically reduces the number of outbreaks by providing early detection & capture of the transplanted Bed Bug.

Is it a Bed Bug?

Bed Bug Identification

  • Bed Bugs are dark brown or light red in color
  • Their eggs are small and clear, about the size of a pinhead
  • Adults are roughly the size of an apple seed
  • Bed Bugs typically live in box springs, mattresses, and in or under other regularly used furniture. They can even live under carpeting, on window treatments, inside of books, and inside electrical outlets
  • Other signs of an infestation include finding brown, black, or red stains from feces and their left behind brown shells or clear eggs along mattress seams

Active Season

  • Bed Bugs are indoor pests allowing them to be active all year-round
  • They are nocturnal, active from 9pm to 6am, but most active from 2 to 5am

Interesting Facts

  • Only 30-40% of the population show a visual reaction to Bed Bug bites, in addition to them being nocturnal, it is highly possible that a home or property may be infested without your awareness
  • They are called a “hitchhiker” bug as they will climb on or into a bag, clothing, or other belongings and are unknowingly relocated very easily

Cause for Concern

  • For those who are allergic, bites can show up anytime from 1 hour to 2 weeks from the time bitten
  • Typical biting pattern is in a row or circle, often with 3-4 bites, ¼- ½ inch long. Bites will result in severe itching
  • A Bed Bug infestation can be spread from a variety of ways including traveling, entertaining guests, or buying used furniture
  • A clean home and good personal hygiene does not disqualify anyone from a Bed Bug infestation as they are solely searching for a blood meal

The Bed Bug NightStick

The Night Stick was developed to address the increasing worldwide problem of Bed Bug infestation. It has become the most cost-effective method on the market for early detection against this growing epidemic. Night Stick Company, an innovator of pest control devices, has collaborated with innovative pest control experts in the field to bring this product to market. Together, they are one of the most progressive and successful Bed Bug solution providers in the country. The purpose of the Night Stick is to make it easy to stop or spot a new invader. Hotel staff and pest control technicians are provided with a simple, effective, first alert system.

The dark body of the Bed Bug instantly stands out in contrast against the Night Stick’s pure white color. Even the unfed light brown babies can be seen upon close examination. The Bed Bugs aggregate or fecal matter (small black dots) will also be visually present as a positive sign of infestation. The Night Stick not only provides the Bed Bug with preferred harborage sites, but has the ability to capture the Bed Bug as it snuggles into place to hide. The Night Stick is ‘on duty’ 24/7 and can actually become the tool that captures that single pregnant hitch-hiking Bed Bug, before she has a chance to lay her sticky little eggs in an obscure place.
