BED BUGS

  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE SEEN A LIVE BED BUG?

  • HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED A BED BUG INFESTATION?

  • HOW MANY USE A CONTRACTOR FOR PEST MANAGEMENT?


WHY DO WE NEED IPM

  • INCREASED RESISTANCE TO CURRENT INSECTICIDES

  • EXPOSURE OF RESIDENTS TO INSECTICIDES

  • SUSTAINABLE SOLUTIONS


WHERE DO THEY COME FROM?

WHY ARE THE PROBLEMS SO SEVERE?

BED BUGS ON CAMPUS


USED FURNITURE


INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL


LOCAL COMMUNITY


WHY ARE THE PROBLEMS SO SEVERE?

  • Important Points.

    • Lays 3 to 5 eggs a day

    • Total days from egg to adult is about 30 at 80.6˚ F.

    • 5 molts from nymph to adult

    • Can live well over 6 months without feeding (some reports over 18 months)


HOW SMALL ARE THEY?

  • ADULT IS 3/16 INCH LONG

  • 1ST INSTAR NYMPH IS ABOUT THE SIZE OF A PERIOD AT END OF SENTENCE

  • EGGS ARE 1-2 MM


TEMPERATURE EFFECTS

-Below ~55˚ F Development stops

-Above ~99˚ F Development stops

-Thrive at temps between ~68˚ F - 80˚ F

-Die at Temps > 113˚F or < 32 ˚F

THE SECURITY THAT THE BED BUGS ARE DEAD

PRICELESS


ROOM TREATMENT

  • VACUUMING

  • STEAMING

  • APPLYING A RESIDUAL


VACUUM THE CARPET

  • THOUROGHLY VACUUM THE CARPET AREAS

  • CAN BE BEFORE OR AFTER THE HEAT TREATMENT

  • DISPOSE OF THE VACUUM BAG


STEAM TREATMENT

  • PULL THE CARPET BACK FROM BASEBOARDS

  • STEAM ALONG ALL EDGES AT THE JUNCTION OF CARPET AND WALL


RESIDUAL APPLICATION

  • APPLY RESIDUAL INSECTICIDE ALONG JUNCTION OF WALL AND FLOOR

  • APPLY DUST BEHIND ALL WALL PLATES


WHICH RESIDUALS

  • MOSTLY DUSTS WITH SILICA GEL AND PYRETHRINS

  • WHITEMIRE TRI-DIE AND DRIONE ARE PREFERRED

  • DELTA DUST AND BORIC ACID ARE NOT AS EFFECTIVE


WHOLE ROOM HEAT

  • THERE ARE COMPANIES THAT ARE PERFORMING WHOLE ROOM HEAT

  • TWO DIFFERENT ENERGY SOURCES

    • PROPANE

    • ELECTRICITY


WHOLE ROOM HEAT USING PROPANE GAS

  • WORKS GREAT IF ALL ROOMS ARE GROUND FLOOR

  • NEED A READY SOURCE OF PROPANE

  • MAY TAKE UP TO 24 HOURS


WHOLE ROOM HEAT USING ELECRICITY

  • 115 VOLT HEATERS REQUIRE 6 15 AMP CIRCUITS TO OPERATE

  • 460 VOLT HEATERS NEED A GENERATOR

  • GETS RATHER EXPENSIVE


MANUFACTURERS

  • Temp Air –

ELEMENTS OF IPM

  • Education

  • Communications

  • Inspection

  • Identification

  • Exclusion

  • Sanitation

  • Treatment Strategy

  • Evaluation


EDUCATION

  • Institutional staff

  • Pest control provider

  • Residents


COMMUNICATIONS

  • Key element between participants

  • May take a variety of forms

  • Addresses problems, solutions, and prevention


INSPECTION

  • Performed on an as needed basis

  • Results documented

  • Provides early intervention and validation of success

IDENTIFICATION

  • Sample of pest is important

  • Proper ID is vital

  • Leads to proper plans for control


EXCLUSION

  • DIFFICULT TO DO FOR BED BUGS

  • WELL MAINTAINED FACILITY HELPS GREATLY

  • SIMPLE THINGS CAN HELP


TREATMENT STRATEGY

  • Developed with safety as important factor

  • Utilizing all of IPM tools

  • Can this strategy be sustained


EVALUATION

  • All inspections and reports documented

  • Create a data base

  • Analyze data on regular basis


PREVENTION

  • EDUCATE, EDUCATE, EDUCATE

  • BEWARE OF USED FURNITURE

  • PREPARE SPRING BREAK TRAVEL ADVISORY

  • COULD BE COMMUNITY PROBLEM


PREVENTION TOOLS

  • INVERTED SEAM MATTRESSES

  • MATTRESS COVERS

  • WELL MAINTAINED FACILITY

  • WELL EDUCATED RESIDENTS/STAFF


INVERTED SEAM MATTRESS


MATTRESS COVER


MANUFACTURERS

  • University Sleep Products –

  • Residex –

FACILITY MAINTENANCE

  • SEAL UP ALL CRACKS

  • SEAL WALL PENETRATIONS

  • ELIMINATE ALL HARBORAGES


EDUCATE THE RESIDENTS

  • PUBLISH THE DO’S AND DON’TS

  • ENCOURAGE THEM TO REPORT EVEN SUSPECTED BED BUGS

  • MAKE IT A PART OF THE STAFF/RESIDENT ORIENTATION
