Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite: Advice from an Entomologist

Nesconset, New York. August 15, 2011

Bed bugs can be difficult to remove and cause many sleepless nights. What do they look like? Can they spread disease? How can I prevent them? Patrons at the Nesconset Branch Library got answers from a certified entomologist from Suburban Exterminating on preventing, identifying, and treating bed bugs.

One of Suburban Exterminating’s certified entomologists, Lynn Frank, spoke about bedbugs at THE NEW NESCONSET BRANCH LIBRARY (141 SMITHTOWN BLVD, NESCONSET, NY) on Monday, August 15th from 7 to 8 pm. Bedbugs have recently resurfaced as a major pest, and no one’s quite sure how to deal with them. Frank discussed different ways to prevent these bugs from entering your home in the first place, identifying them if they make it in, and finally, getting rid of them.

Also known as cimicidaes, wall louses, mahogany flats, crimson ramblers, heavy dragoons, chinches, and redcoats, bedbugs induce skin rashes and other allergic symptoms because they feed on human blood. They also prefer to inhabit places where people sleep because they are mainly active at night and can feed on their hosts, unnoticed.

  1. For some years bed bugs were regarded as a problem that belonged to the past. However infestations are now found around the globe and in plague proportions.
