Creepy Crawlies Are Taking Over Libraries!

Bedbugs are everywhere!  Hotels and residences are famous for bedbug hubs. Whenever we hear their names we naturally assume of a bed. But did you even know that beds aren’t just the spot where bed bugs appear? A bedbug infestation can be spotted in many locations. They can be found in a significant bunch of areas during your everyday routines.

Surprisingly, libraries are having a hard time tackling the problem of bedbugs nesting in their books and would then creep to borrowers’ residences. In only six months, a single pregnant female bed bug will produce a population of over 700,000-bed bugs. It’s too risky to return a contaminated book. There are many cases where these blood-sucking insects have fall out directly from the book on the library’s desk.

According to the New York Times, bedbugs and their eggs can be found in the spines of hardcover books.” The bugs emerge at night to eat, find a new home in a headboard, and soon readers are loving not only plot twists but also post-bite welts,” according to the newspaper.

Here are some reasons to purchase e-books as bedbugs were blamed to invade the libraries!

The local library closes after the discovery of bed bugs

Bed bugs found in returned DVDs have caused the closure of the Quincy Public Library. NCW Libraries announced on May 01, 2021.

The library has been closed since April 30, 2021, the day the insects were discovered.

Two separate pest control companies came in to confirm that the insects were bed bugs.

On Monday, May 3, 2021, a pest control company was brought in to treat the entire building and individual materials as well. Pest control will follow up to verify the effectiveness of the treatment.

Bed bug infestation temporarily closes Pasco Library in Hudson

On September 05, 2020, the Pasco County Library System announced its temporarily closing one of its branches for an unusual reason: an infestation of bed bugs.

The Hudson branch off of Fivay Road will be closed until further notice.

According to a release from the county, staff at the library noticed the bugs about two weeks ago. The county hired a pest control company to begin “spot treatments,” but that method didn’t seem to work.

So now, the plan is to tent the entire building to kill the pests.

Barbara Cichocki and her son Wayne used to frequent the neighborhood library, but they haven’t been here recently. They are saying thank goodness, just the thought of bed bugs in the library gives Barbara chills.

They not only invade houses or libraries but they can create a huge impact on human health also. Their bites can cause discomfort or an allergic reaction which can be severe.

Various methods are used traditionally to mitigate those blood-sucking creatures. But, every method comes with its drawbacks. Heat tends to age the books. Fumigation is well-known for causing fatigue, nausea, cancers, and endocrine disruptions, etc. Also, excessive use of it has accelerated bedbug evolution. They are becoming immune to commonly used pesticides!
