The summer months keep Canadians busy worrying about fleas and ticks but that doesn’t mean that other troublesome pests have gone away all together. Bed bugs are a particularly stubborn pest that thrives throughout the year, particularly throughout the tourism industry. Summer vacations are common practice all across Canada. Whether you are returning after a tropical vacation or just parking after a road trip, there is a chance that you are bringing home more than just souvenirs. If you have accidentally carried one of these biting pests inside your home or workplace, just call Toodaloo to tackle those insect issues.
Part of what makes bed bugs such a formidable foe is their mobility. Being able to hop from place to place is great for them but terrible for property owners. These pests latch onto potential hosts, holding tight to clothing, luggage or tucked away inside purses or backpacks. Once inside, bed bugs find their sweet spot - usually inside mattresses or box-springs - and set up shop. Bugs don’t need a 5-star resort to be comfortable, all they need is a fresh blood meal.
Bed bugs are not known to transmit disease through their bites, but that doesn’t mean that property owners want to be human chew toys. Insects bites leave behind itchy, red welts which not only look terrible but can also cause allergic reactions. Squishing the odd creepy crawler might make you feel better, but it won’t do much to diminish populations as a whole - and this is where Toodaloo technicians come in!
More and more Canadians are struggling the most natural ways to treat problem areas in their life. Introducing insecticides and chemicals into their work or living space is not appealing to many property owners or tenants. Instead of forcing chemical treatments on clients, Toodaloo offers a more natural approach. High-powered vacuums and steam treatments provide clients with the right results, without any of the traditionally harsh methods.
