TRAVEL BED BUG KIT AVAILABLE FOR 2009 SUMMER TRAVEL SEASON

Must-Have Travel Item for Family Summer Vacation, Business Trips and General Traveler

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (May 14, 2009) — Bell Environmental Services (BES), a full-service pest management company located in the New York Metropolitan area, is offering a travel bed bug kit to help abate the bed bug problem for families traveling this summer, business travelers and anyone traveling away from home.

Bell Environmental Services’ Travel Bed Bug Kit contains a 6 ounce bed bug control luggage spray, an inspection card that includes color photos of bed bugs for identification and instructions on how to use the travel kit, an LED flashlight with batteries to search for bed bugs in hard to see crevices, and several Catch-It Sticky Traps to place in the room where you’re staying.

The laminated Bed Bug Travel Protection instruction card details step-by-step how to inspect for bed bugs in a hotel room, explaining where to look for them and what to look for. The card also explains how to prepare your luggage before and after travel and where to place your luggage when you’ve entered your room. “Most of us just plop our suitcases on the beds or on the floor in our hotel room,” said Jennifer Erdogan, manager, Bed Bug Division at Bell Environmental. “It is best to keep your luggage away from the bed and place it on top of the luggage rack to keep the bed bugs from crawling into your suitcases.”

Bed bugs are attracted to the carbon dioxide and heat humans emit. In a hotel room, bed bugs would sense a new occupant and come out of hiding to feed. Hiding in easily accessible luggage, in its cracks and crevices, make it easier for the bed bugs to feed near its host.

The Bed Bug Travel Kit is available online at Bell at http://www.bellenvironmentalstore.com or by calling Bell Environmental. The kit retails for $29.99 and is easy to tuck into a large purse, backpack or suitcase for easy travel. In light of the bed bug epidemic that’s infiltrated the New York Metropolitan area, as well as other pockets that are surfacing across the United States, the Bed Bug Kit is becoming a must-have travel item this summer and beyond.
