Australian Mother Bitten by Bed Bugs in Hotel Quarantine
Rosie, a mother from Melbourne, had a horrific quarantining experience. After returning home from a trip to the US with her kids, she was in a hotel for her mandatory 14 days quarantine. However, she noticed that the hotel was not the most clean and hygienic and asked to be moved to another room. She gave the new room a quick wipe down, but this wasn’t enough. On the first night itself, she woke up in the middle of the night to find “at least two dozen bed bugs” crawling all over her bed. She was covered in small bites and bleeding on the sheet. She added that another bed in her room was also infested with bed bugs. Bed bugs are common in all parts of the world and cause serious harm when precautions are not taken.

It’s Now Officially Tick Season in Canada
Health agencies across the country are warning people to be careful when they are outside, as it is now officially the tick season in Canada.

For this reason, it is extremely important to be wary of your surroundings, especially if you go to the woods, forests, or somewhere with long grasses, where there are usually all kinds of bugs. As the weather begins to get warmer, ticks are more common all over the country, from Alberta to Ontario. Just last year, six provinces, including Quebec, New Brunswick, Ontario, Nova Scotia, Manitoba, and B.C., had tick problems.

Be Aware of Tick Season and Lyme Disease This Year
Tick season has officially arrived, and in provinces like Alberta, these bugs are even more rampant. Ticks are mostly found in forests and wooded areas with plenty of trees and greenery, so remember to stay safe if you find yourself in such areas. This year, it’s even more important to be cautious of these tiny bugs since there is an increased risk for Lyme Disease. Ticks are known carriers of this illness, and according to research by the University of Alberta, one in every five people who are bit by ticks are at risk for developing Lyme Disease. Spring and summer are when Lyme Disease-carrying ticks are most commonly found. Apart from ticks, many other bugs are carriers of all kinds of diseases. Stay safe and make sure your home is protected. Call Bed Bug Exterminator Pro to help you get rid of any unwanted bugs.

Should You Be Scared of Hantavirus?
Right when the world is dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, there is another virus that has taken the life of one man, stirring fear and unease among the residents of Yunnan province in China. The virus, known as hantavirus, is spread by rodents and can result in various disease syndromes. According to experts, there are various types of hantaviruses, each of which has a specific rodent host species. The virus is spread through contact with the rodent’s feces, urine, saliva and bite. Common symptoms include fever, muscle pain and fatigue. The good news is that hantavirus cannot be transferred from person to person. Despite this, it is still best to make sure your property is rodent-free since these creatures are the carrier of many diseases.

Warning Issued on Spurious Pesticide Product
Health Canada issued a warning last week on a non-compliant pesticide that was found in the Canadian marketplace. The pest control product labelled as “Sure Killer Instant Pressurized Residual Insecticide Spray” resembles other registered pesticides but does not have the mandatory registration number under Pest Control Products Act. The spurious product also lacks contact information or the name of the company on its label. Health Canada’s division, called the Pest Management Regulatory Agency (PMRA), regulates the sale and use of pesticides in Canada.  Registered pesticides are those that have been subject to a stringent scientific review before they are approved for sale. The PMRA, apart from registering approved pesticide products, also re-evaluates registered products and sets maximum pesticide residue limits. In the past as well, there were concerns regarding phosphine pesticides and insecticide chalks that were brought from other countries to Canada to kill bedbugs. Contact Bed Bug Exterminator Pro, we use eco-friendly and approved pesticides to get rid of bed bugs in Toronto safely – guaranteed.
