Bed bugs are not yet done making rounds in schools. A recent report has it that another campus purportedly fell victim to the said blood-fed pests. And because of their suspected presence, four students were forced to relocate.
According to the report, this time, bed bugs were possibly present in the University of South Florida. Particularly, the area suspected infested by them was the student housing Mu Hall.
Marly Difruscio, a creative writing student of the university said that she was bitten by an insect several times while sleeping. The said bites resemble that of mosquito, red and itchy. But after requesting the maintenance department for an inspection in her room, she was told there were no bugs found in her room during over the break.
But getting bitten again, Difrusion requested for another inspection. And this time, she and her roommates were asked to relocate to another housing for four to five days. Before moving in though, they were required to change clothes and to dry all the others they brought with them to prevent the likely transfer of the pests.
Possible bed bugs in Difruscio’s room was detected in her bed, door wall and the bottom frame of the mattress. An inspection and heat treatment was scheduled to be implemented to solve the possible bed bug problem.

“Marly Difruscio, a freshman majoring in creative writing, said she kept waking up in her bed with what she described as red, itchy bites.
However, between January and March, she wasn’t sure if it was a rash from an allergic reaction or something else.
“I’ll get a good six or seven (bites) a night,” she said. “It looks like a mosquito bite. It’s red but it lasts a lot longer and turns into bruises. They itch really bad.”

Bed bug bites resemble that of other insects. So, Difrusio’s marks could indeed be that of bed bugs.
Given that, prompt bed bug inspection is needed whenever you think you got the pests. And if bed bug presence is confirmed, a treatment must immediately follow that up. However, for a more convenient method to kill bed bugs, you could just get yourself a Bed Bug Bully, apply it and let it do the work.
As proven by pest-control companies, Bed Bug Bully is effective. And as approved by FIFRA 25(b), it is pesticide-exempt, which also makes it safe for your health and that of anybody else.
