Bed bugs knows no one. Their next target can be your property or that near you- your house, even your belongings. The damage they leave can be a big problem to us. What’s worse about them is that, even when they have been terminated, sometimes, what they leave behind can still be detrimental to health. This is why there is always a need for professional exterminators to check if our properties are infested.
In Elizabeth City, even a homeless shelter was not spared from bed bugs infestation. This cause the closure of the building. And this is just one example how bed bugs can be a big hindrance in our lives.

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – The Visions of Hope Emergency Outreach Center will be vacated for 30 days after exterminators found a large infestation of bed bugs, according to the Elizabeth City manager.
The city owns the building and has an agreement with Vision of Hope to operate a ladies’ homeless shelter at that building, located at 709 Herrington Road.
The shelter was closed last Wednesday while city staff did routine maintenance and pest inspections. Shelter residents told city staff that they thought bed bugs were in the building. The shelter manager was contacted immediately and requested on-site.
The exterminator identified the bed bugs. In order to get rid of all the bugs, the shelter will need to be vacated for at least 30 days. Staff says it will take about $1,700 to fix the problem.
The city addressed a bed bug infestation at the same location almost two years ago in October 2016. The extermination and post-treatment inspection determined all of the bed bugs were gone.Tags: bed bug extermination services near me, bed bugs exterminators, bed bugs grand rapids, bed bugs in cities, bed bugs near me, how to get rid of bed bugs, pest control, pest inspection, pest management
