Arrow Exterminating Expects Public to Get Hit Hard Post-Spring Break

LYNBROOK, N.Y., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Mike Deutsch can't believe the places he and the other technicians at Arrow Exterminating are finding bed bugs these days: inside lamp bases, clock radios, TVs, computer keyboards, between the pages of books, inside electric switches, behind ceiling moldings and in one case, inside a cell phone.

"We certainly know that bed bugs are not restricted to beds and upholstered furniture, but now we're finding them in places even we never thought possible."

The ultra-high volume of spring break travel is bound to yield more than a deluge of spectacular tans. "Expect to see a huge increase in bed bugs after spring break is over this year," he says. Frequent international travel and hotel stays have helped bed bugs to make a comeback after near extinction in the U.S. The bugs find their way into suitcases and end up being carried home here to the States. Another reason bed bugs are back with a vengeance is that DDT, a pesticide commonly used in the mid-twentieth century to treat bed bugs, has been banned and the pesticides used today are safer but less effective.

Bed bug infestations have grown at a steady clip over the last handful of years. Infestation has risen so markedly that Arrow experienced no seasonal downtime this winter. "That was unusual," says Deutsch. "The heart of the winter is normally pretty quiet in our industry but we didn't miss a beat this winter due to bed bug service calls throughout Long Island and the five boroughs." Deutsch also believes the infestation will continue to worsen this year.
