  • Vacuum and clean all areas including offices, hallways, lobbies, break rooms, storefronts and restrooms on a daily basis.
  • Train employees to notice the signs of bed bugs as they go about their daily duties. Pay close attention to the seams of furniture, mattresses, drapes and upholstery for telltale brownish or reddish spots. Bed bugs have also been known to infest electrical sockets, surge protectors and behind picture frames. Vigilance in spotting possible signs of bed bugs by employees is an important part of the control process.
  • Eliminate clutter – especially in storage areas – as they provide ideal harborage areas for bed bugs in office settings.
  • Carefully inspect all items and packaging when unpacking new inventory or receiving shipments for signs of bed bugs.
  • Encourage employees to report suspected bed bug activity immediately and alert your technician so they can conduct a thorough, professional inspection.
