After almost being exterminated in the United States and Canada for fifty years, common bed bugs are staging a major, and highly unwelcome, comeback. This insect feeds exclusively on the blood of warm blooded creatures, i. E., birds and mammals. For this reason our 21st century outbreak is starting in motels, schools, hotels, etc.

Another possible factor was discovered when it was noted that outbreaks of the pest were occurring in geographic epicenters. Three of the epicenters were found to center around poultry factories in three cases in three different states; Arkansas, Delaware and Texas. Infested poultry were transferred bugs to workers who, in turn, brought the parasite home with from work.While data for be dug cases in Mexico are unavailable, it is know that cases reported in the rest of North America have increased throughout the first decade of the new century. Outbreaks in large urban areas like Toronto, Canada, and New York City are of particular concern and proving particularly difficult to reign in.

Florida is the center of tourism in the continental United States. Accordingly, Florida is filled with hotels, motels, hostels and other paid residences that are available to accomodate its tourists.

If bed bugs transmitted disease, what’s happening would be considered a huge epidemic,” says bed bug expert Dini Miller, an entomologist at Virginia Tech. “Though bedbugs have been shown to harbor 28 pathogens temporarily — including HIV and hepatitis B — numerous studies have shown the pathogens fail to thrive in the host enough to spread disease to people,” according to an article in the July 16, 2007 issue of U.S. News & World Report

Hotels have to be especially careful of bedbug infestation. With their many guests, constant hygiene is necessary to be certain that they do not appear in their beds, carpeting or furniture. They can travel along boards or in traveler’s luggage, books or other items. They can also be in cars, vans and other forms of transportation. They then attach to a person’s clothing and are carried to a new location
