If you are a frequent traveler, chances are you have done your fair share of scouting for bedbugs. These nasty critters are experts at finding their way into your mattress, onto your clothes, and even between your sheets. Where you wouldn’t expect to find them, though, is at a library. However, for several libraries in Clearwater, Florida – that’s exactly what is happening.
When people bring home books from the library, they often read them late at night when winding down. If the home has bedbugs, chances are they will end up stuck between the pages at some point. And with a countless number of items moving in and out of libraries every year, bed bugs are always an issue.
To combat the problem, these libraries are essentially “baking” their books in what they call an oven to kill any critters that may have otherwise made it back on the shelf.
If you’re worried that you might have bedbugs, whether it is on your bed, luggage, or even books, consider the ThermalStrike Ranger, which is designed to prevent the spread of bedbugs by surrounding luggage or items such as a backpack, with heat on all sides to destroy all stages of bedbugs.
