Another day, another PR piece that is actually worth reading.
Yahoo posted a pretty good PR article recently by Bell Environmental Services about how to protect your home from bed bugs your kids might pick up at school.
In New York City, bed bug incidents in public schools rose to 3,590 last year, more than triple the 2009-2010 school year.
That’s a pretty significant number.
The article suggests ways of handling your child’s backpack to reduce the chance of bringing bed bugs home from school. Worth a read so go check it out.
And yet another good PR piece, this time by Raveable.com via Marketwatch.com.
In the wake of the 2010 Bedbug Epidemic the number of bedbug reports for 2011 (January 1–September 1) shattered 2010 totals by more than 660%.
If you’re interested, go see the cities with the largest number of bed bug reports. Here’s a hint. You’ve heard the saying “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.” Apparently not so for bed bug bites and bed bugs. I gave you a few ideas for avoiding bed bug hotels. It looks like you can add raveable.com to the list of places you can research a hotel before you travel.
