Everyone! Despite the fact that bed bugs do not jump or fly like other types of insects, they have evolved over the years into master hitchhikers. College students, even those who are not staying in a dorm or off-site campus apartment, are at risk of picking up bed bugs.

Where are bed bugs found on a college campus?

Because bed bugs are hitchhikers, they can be transmitted by humans from place to place. Any place that humans frequent can be subject to bed bugs. College classrooms, libraries, cafeterias, student lounges, dorms, computer labs, etc. can all serve as a nesting site for a wayward bed bug that is awaiting its next victim.

How can avoid bed bugs at college?

Knowing how to identify bed bugs is the first step in avoiding picking up the critters. Always keep book bags, purses, and laptop bags sealed shut and be on the lookout for the insects at all times.

If you believe you spotted bed bugs, save a sample for professional identification. Notify college administrators to your concern. Many colleges have adopted protocols for college bed bug situations that include inspection and appropriate treatments.

Should I try treating a bed bug infestation on my own?

No! A new study has proven that store bought bed bug sprays and foggers are not effective at killing bed bugs at any stage in their development. The only safe way of properly eradicating a bed bug infestation is to call in a professional.
