We’ve been receiving quite a few questions about bed bugs and transmission of the coronavirus, so thought we’d do a quick post on the topic. In general, the virus doesn’t appear to be transmitted by bed bugs or other pests. The most up to date information on the coronavirus and possible transmission routes remains the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
It may seem reasonable to assume that bed bugs are vector pests because many blood feeding arthropods are, but there has been little evidence to support the assumption. That’s not to say it’s impossible, the jury’s still out, but current opinion is that they are not vector pests.
If you do have a bed bug problem, you should still reach out. You don’t want bugs crawling all over you and your family, in addition to the anxieties about the coronavirus. Call us at 317-288-3315 and we’ll get your problem taken care of, and you can rest assure that our technicians are trained to minimize physical contact and take all precautions recommended by the CDC in this time of uncertainty. Also, please don’t be offended, handshakes have been temporarily replaced with smiles and waves!
