Family Faces Holiday Disaster Due to Bed Bug Infestation at Hotel
What started out as a birthday vacation for a Winnipeg woman and her family turned into a nightmare they won’t forget. While they were sleeping at night, the woman was woken up by something itchy on her skin. She woke up her husband, and when they turned on the lights, they found that both the beds were filled with bed bugs everywhere. They immediately notified the front desk; they were offered a change of sheets. The couple demanded another room, but when they were told that this was not possible, they decided to drive back home in the middle of the night instead of spending another night in the bed bug infested hotel. Incidents like these are, unfortunately, not uncommon, especially in hotels. It is important that rooms are kept clean and that the bed sheets are changed regularly to avoid bed bug infestations.

North Bay has an Increasing Bed Bug Problem
The city of North Bay in Nipissing is struggling with a bed bug problem. Low-income families are especially bearing the brunt of the issue since they do not have the financial means to effectively solve the bed bug issue. The situation has reportedly gotten so bad that people show up to their places of work with bed bug bites. According to a list released by Orkin Canada based on the number of works they carry out in each city, North Bay made it to the top 25, ranking at number 23.   Bites from bed bugs can cause serious pain and discomfort, not to mention that the insects themselves are extremely unhygienic. They are often found in small cracks and crevices, between furniture, walls, under your couches, beds, and even inside bags. For an affordable, yet effective solution to this issue, make sure to give professional bedbug exterminators a call.

Forestry Experts Urging Property Owners to Protect Themselves from Douglas Fir Beetle
As the number of Douglas fir beetles is on the rise in British Columbia, forestry service is urging property owners in the country to take necessary measures to protect their trees from the insect. Experts suggest that property owners spray their trees with MCH repellent so that they won’t be attacked by the invasive insect. Even though Douglas fir beetles only attack dying trees in most cases, for instance, trees that have been affected by drought or wildfires, their increasing number is likely to drive them to attack even perfectly healthy trees. Generally, the insects start eating and attacking the trees during early summer, so it is highly suggested that you call professionals to start applying the necessary repellents now.

Court Forced to be Adjourned After Bed Bugs Crawl Out of Lawyer’s Suit
An Oklahoma courthouse had to be adjourned after a lawyer reportedly arrived with bed bugs crawling out of his suit. According to County Sheriff Scott Walton, a large number of bugs were just “falling out” of the lawyer’s suit. Apparently, a courthouse user first noticed the bugs crawling on the lawyer’s neck. The lawyer had also placed his coat over a few file folders, which were crawling with bed bugs too in no time. After this discovery, it was decided that the courthouse must be evacuated since inmates were present at the time, which increased the risk of a bug infestation in prison. The courthouse was shut down and decontaminated soon after.   Bed bugs can be found everywhere, and they travel from one place to another easily. Public places especially need to be careful since the chances of infestation are higher. If you have any bed bugs in your home or in your workplace, make sure to call professional pest exterminators.
