Reports had it that bed bugs were detected in one homeless shelter in North Platte. And, indeed, they were in the facility as confirmed by its management. However, they clarified that the crawlies were already cleared.
The pesky bugs were found in a room in the women’s dormitory. A resident reported the sightings of them.
But that was three weeks ago said Executive Director Beth DeFreece on Wednesday. When they were informed about it, they had an exterminator confirm the pests’ presence and implement a bed bug treatment, she added. And so now, she stated that they aren’t a problem anymore in the shelter.
In addition to the treatment, the facility also took other steps for precautions. The mattresses and the mattress covers in the affected room were changed. The furniture pieces made with wood were also replaced with their metal counterpart.

Bed bugs are some of the most horrible indoor pests. One of the reasons is that they don’t choose a place to infest. Three weeks ago, they troubled a homeless shelter in Nebraska. Today, they might be in a hotel or store in your area. And tomorrow, you’ll never know, but they be in your home.
Because of that, it is imperative that you are always ready to kill bed bugs. Prepare a bed bug spray, watch out for any sign of them and act quick once you confirmed their presence. That way, you could prevent the worst of their effects.
However, the majority of bed bug sprays today contain harsh chemicals. Stay away from using them to prevent more risks to your health and that of your family.
Instead, use Bed Bug Bully. This product is organic-based and is even on EPA’s FIFRA 25(b) list for being pesticide exempt. With its effective formula, it could also kill bed bugs and their eggs and nymphs in seconds.
