Not long after I was interviewed by radio personality John Gambling on WOR 710 regarding Bed Bugs being found in New York’s Lincoln Center, another news story hit the news – a NYC school was treated for Bed Bugs; and the exterminator the school used had allegedly randomly and excessively sprayed pesticides throughout classrooms. I don’t know who the exterminator was, or what pesticide was used, but the treatment as described by the school, does NOT comply with what we at Knockout Pest Control considers an appropriate treatment of Bed Bugs… especially in a such a sensitive environment where children are present. And now that pesticides were used … Bed Bug Detection Dogs can’t be used to check for the effectiveness of the treatment to determine if the Bed Bugs have been eliminated until the residual pesticides dissipate…which can be several weeks. It’s real simple… here at Knockout Pest Control we get more inquiries about Bed Bugs than just about any other pest… and we go out on more Bed Bug calls and treat for Bed Bugs than any other pest. And we do it in residential homes, co–op and condo apartments, offices, entire buildings, hospitals, and …yes… in schools too. Bottom line… if you think you have Bed Bugs call us for an evaluation. We can make an inspection and even use a certified Bed Bug dogs to determine if you even have a Bed Bug problem; and if you do…the dog and our pest control technicians can find exactly where they’re hiding. Then, we’ll treat the problem in only a few hours, WITHOUT putting people or the environment at risk. Call us… call me. If this blog posting sounds too “salesy”, I apologize, but there are too many people “out there” who are just making the entire Bed Bug issue worse and giving the entire New York area a bad reputation at the expense of New Yorkers.

You seem to be the only active blog on the web with useful info. I have seen bed bugs in a friends apartment. Does that mean that i have them too, or just a greater risk? I'm a little freaked out.

Who does the NYC Dept of Ed use as an exterminator? Bed Bugs are becoming a big problem in city schools.

I live in Hempstead and some of my neighbors have had bed bugs. My apartment building uses Knockout. They do a great job. I still worry about bringing bed bugs home from a friends house or the movies. Don't "freak out" be careful and have your friend get someone in to kill the bed bugs. Then buy liners that kill bed bugs and the climbing cups that catches them before they get into your bed. You can't buy them online, you'll have to call the 800 number and buy them over the phone.
