Many apartment buildings in Hamilton are suffering with bed bug cross contamination from one apartment unit to another. The spread of bed bugs throughout an apartment building can happen rapidly if measures are not taken quickly to stem the spread of the bugs. Bed bugs will travel from one apartment unit to another in a few different ways. Bed bugs hide and travel through electrical outlets when able and will find cracks and crevices to travel through from one unit to another. We’ve even seen bed bugs simply crawl underneath the front doors of apartments and make their way down the hall to another!
Since it is almost impossible for a human to accurately detect bed bugs in spaces that are not readily visible to the naked eye, the best chance of detecting bed bugs is through the use of a properly trained K9 bed bug inspection team.
