High travel has created spikes in bed bug activity for years. The more people that are out traveling ,(especially using public transportation) the more opportunities bed bugs have to feed, reproduce, and spread. Adult bed bugs are tough and have the ability to survive without feeding for months.

To help avoid bring home bed bugs while traveling, thoroughly inspecting baggage and personal belongings before checking out. If you think you have bed bugs at home, don’t try to solve the problem yourself. These resilient pests are difficult to eliminate without the help of a professional.



Most ant colonies live underground and thrive in warmer climates. Milder winters provide populations with the resources needed to grow larger and further spread into new areas. Homeowners can expect to see an increase in ant activity in 2023, some of which may include species of ants that have relocated.
