Five Prevention Tips to Avoid Beg Bugs During Peak Season — FAIRFIELD, N.J., Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ —
We encourage you to ask questions and stay informed, and we invite you to participate in honest conversation with us regarding the situation. Officials said they were grateful the incident was isolated to a small portion of the Navarre collection. Library staff has proven vigilant in their handling of materials and will continue to monitor the collection in the days ahead, a news release said. Anyone who suspects they have found signs of a bed bug or eggs in a library item should seal the object in a plastic bag and notified the branch from which it was borrowed. The bagged item should go directly to a staff member and not be placed in the drop box. Library materials should not be treated by being placed in the microwave or oven because the RFID tag will spark and catch fire. Materials should not be sprayed with pesticides.

Inspect and vacuum your luggage for hitchhiking insects. Place your clothing in sealed plastic bags. Then place the clothing in the dryer or send it to the dry cleaner, and throw out the plastic bags. Store your personal goods (backpack, purse, laptop bag, etc.) in enclosed bins. Eliminate clutter from your home. Bed bugs love to hide in clutter. Don’t buy or pick up used furniture. To take the itch out of bed bug season and as part of its ongoing education efforts, Bell Environmental Services is hosting a contest to find the next stars of its popular “Where’s Roscoe?” commercials .

Were pleased to return to normal operations and thank our residents and their families for their patience as we went through this process, said Marlin Peck, administrator of the nursing home. As our residents and their families know, we take great pride in the cleanliness and quality of care at Pleasant Acres. We regret the challenges caused by the restrictions, but felt these steps were necessary as part of a comprehensive response to this challenge. No additional bed bugs were located beyond those originally found, prompting the return to normal visitation and resident movement on Wednesday, Lindquist said. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, bed bugs travel in the seams and folds of luggage, folded clothes, bedding and furniture.
