Bed bugs, drug paraphernalia greet 6th graders at Estes Park YMCA – The Denver Channel

ESTES PARK, Colo. The YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park Center touts on its website it offers a wholesome, spiritual environment where families,friends and groups will be inspired by nature. But Douglas County school officials and parents say their students’ recent stay at the Estes Park lodge was far from a wholesome experience.

Highlands Ranch parents are upset after they say their children were exposed to bed bugs and drug paraphernalia during a school-sponsored trip to the Estes Park center earlier this week. The infestation prompted school officials to cut the trip short.

Saddle Ranch Elementary 6th graders participating in the outdoor education program arrived at the YMCA of the Rockies Estes Park Center Tuesday morning. The students and accompanying school staff were scheduled to stay in quarters called the Rainbow Lodge at the center, according to Dave DeLuca, the director of the Estes Park YMCA.

When students arrived at the lodge, they encountered rooms in disarray and an exterminator who showed them signs of a significant bed bug presence, DeLuca wrote in a letter he sent to parents. The exterminator was on scene because previous guests of Rainbow Lodge had complained to YMCA staff that they were affected by the bugs, DeLuca said.

According to DeLuca, when school staff, armed with digital photos of the infestation, approached the front desk about different accommodations, they were told that couldnt be done, and that Rainbow Lodge would be ready for the students shortly. But after continued discussion, YMCA staff ultimately agreed to relocate the students to a different lodge.

However, when Estes Park staff and school personnel inspected the new rooms offered to the students, they found dead bed bugs and several hypodermic syringes, a small spoon and a prescription drug wrapper under a mattress at the lodge, DeLuca wrote.

Larimer County Sherriff deputies were called after the discovery of drug paraphernalia. However, DeLuca admitted YMCA staff were initiallyhesitant to call authorities.

“YMCA staff was immediately called to come to the building, where they took possession of the materials. It was observed by school personnel that our staff did not seem confident in the proper handling of such items,” wrote DeLuca.

The incidents were more than enough for school personnel, and they cut the trip short, leaving the next day. The school was given a full refund and parents were informed of the situation at the lodge through DeLucas letter.

DeLuca apologized to parents and said he would be meeting center staff to review practices and procedures to ensure the issues the students encountered would not happen again.

No signs of rat infestation in Westerly | The Westerly Sun – The Westerly Sun

WESTERLY Westerly is just across the Pawcatuck River Bridge, but it appears the town is having fewer problems with rats than Pawcatuck.

Westerly has had a small number of rat complaints to investigate since April, said James Broccoli, minimum housing officer for Westerly, Wednesday. There has not been a major outcry for rat problems in Westerly.

Its about six or seven complaints, he said. I think people are worried about it because of articles in The Sun. He said he has cited two properties, but one was for a mice infestation. He said some unfounded calls also came in but he found no signs of rats in those instances.

In comparison, as of August 23, Pawcatuck has received about 25 to 30 complaints and issued five orders, some related to rats, some related to trash, according to Ryan McCammon, Supervisor of Environmental Health for Ledge Light Health District, which is Stoningtons health department.

The numbers are surprising since both towns are adjacent to the Pawcatuck River, which rat expert Robert Corrigan identified as a habitat for rats in a recent Sun article. Corrigan, of Briarcliff Manor, New York, runs RmC Pest Management in Richmond, Indiana, was a principal lecturer at the Rodent Control Academy, and has authored a book about rodent control for pest management professionals,

It isnt clear why Westerly has had fewer rat complaints, but residents and business owners have been cooperative if rats or signs of rats were found on a property, said Broccoli, who started in his position in April.

Where I do see it, everyones been on board, he said. The people from the town have been great about getting treatment and exterminators and doing what they need to do as property owners.

Do the basics first

Working with neighbors on preventive measures is the best way to stop the problem, he said.

What is important for everyone to remember are the basics to prevent [the rats] from coming to your house and neighborhood, he wrote in an email. Work with everyone in your house/apartment and together with your neighbors to prevent rodents. Do not provide rodents with the food and shelter they seek.

Broccoli said it was important to block rats food supplies with practical methods, like using a trash can with a lid.

Cut off the food supply

Feeding animals and birds outside, including dogs and cats, provides a food source for rats, Broccoli said.

Bird feeders and squirrel feeders are also a problem, he said. Again, youre putting a food source out there for rodents to come and eat.

Because they provide a food source, chicken coops are a problem, he said.

Call an exterminator

Broccoli said he encourages people to hire an exterminator rather than try to solve the problem themselves.

I recommend people get an exterminator I tell them to pick who they want, theres a good amount of them on the internet, pick a local company, he said.

He said that owners of rental properties were required also to hire an exterminator by law.

Be neighborly

To prevent rat infestations, everyone must participate and remind one another what needs to be done, he said.

People from a community aspect, neighbors should be neighborly, he said. You could say, hey why dont you clean that up over there, or dont stack that material over there, or dont leave your dog food out.

He also said that upholstered furniture, cushions and mattresses should not be left outside because they provide nesting areas for rats.

The more people know about the problem, the more theyll take preventive measures, he said.

College students told to continue living in apartment with bedbugs – WRAL.com

Raleigh, N.C. When area college students found bedbugs in their apartment, and the property manager told them they could stay in their apartment, the pair called 5 On Your Side for help.

Robynn Brown moved into her apartment two weeks ago, and 5 On Your Side found a bedbug in her bed during a visit.

I am shocked right now. I didnt know they would be that big, Brown said.

Brown and her two roommates live in Valentine Commons, an off-campus furnished rental near North Carolina State University.

About a week and a half after I moved in, I started itching, Brown said.

Brown found bites on her back, leg, foot and arm. Since then, shes seen telltale signs of bedbugs on her sheets and mattress, including rust colored stains, blood stains and black pellets, which are bedbug waste.

She said shes upset, knowing that those were in my bed with me and someones telling me that I should still sleep in that bed.

Property manager Ashley Schultz of Capstone Properties sent an email to the roommates saying they can still remain living in the apartment and the bedbugs are not harmful in any way.

The roommates also took issue with the time frame for treatment. Schultz said the exterminators first available appointment is Sept. 8, which is 10 days after the students reported the bedbug problem.

Since the roommates have all been on each others beds and furniture, they worry thats 10 days for the bugs to spread.

Your home is supposed to be your safe place, not where youre scared about things crawling on you, Brown said.

Not long after 5 On Your Side questioned the property manager, she found another pest control company to come in Friday to treat the apartment.

Schultz released the following statement Thursday afternoon:

“Valentine Commons Apartments was notified of a bed bug issue on August 29th. On that same day our pest control company performed an initial inspection and confirmed bed bugs were only found in one bedroom of a four bedroom unit. We immediately began calling vendors to arrange for the earliest possible treatment which is now scheduled for Friday, September 1st. Valentine Commons is paying for the cost of the treatment and once the treatment is completed the apartment will be re-cleaned, carpets and furniture steamed and sanitized and all beds replaced with new mattresses and box springs. We take the concerns of our residents seriously and try to address any issues as quickly as possible.”

Two follow-up treatments are also planned and will happen within the next week.

Royster deals with found bed bug – Chanute Tribune

Royster deals with found bed bug

Parents of Royster Middle School students received a notification Tuesday that a bed bug had been found in the school.

USD 413 Superintendent Richard Proffitt said one live bed bug was found and there was one other dead creature that might have been a bed bug inside a book that was in a classroom.

The district had an exterminator come in to treat several classrooms with insecticides and heat. Proffitt said they will continue to monitor the situation.

Anytime the word bed bug comes up it can create a bit of panic, Proffitt said.

The alert was just to let parents know that the bug was found and to keep a watch out in their own homes.

Proffitt said he isnt aware of any other cases of bed bugs in the schools, though they have had a few incidents with lice that are handled on an individual student basis.

Proffitt said parents should inform the district if they have bed bugs so the schools can connect them to appropriate resources for getting rid of the insects at home and also be proactive in not letting schools be a place where bed bugs can be transported from house to house.

One couple’s bedbug saga: exactly what a nightmare would be – San Francisco Chronicle

Bedbugs didnt cause the breakup of Straten Schemel and his ex-girlfriend Paige Govey, but they contributed to it, both sides agree.

The former couple said they moved from San Jose, where they were bug-free, into San Franciscos Potrero Launch apartment complex in December 2015. Part of their 63-page lease agreement included a two-page addendum about bedbugs, Schemel said. The addendum noted that there may have been a prior infestation in the dwelling or building, but it was treated by a professional and the unit was believed to be free of further infestation.

He figured that was a routine disclosure and forgot about it, even after he and Govey started getting what they thought were spider or flea bites. One day we were laying there and saw a bedbug crawling across the bed, he said.

Govey would wake up with bedbugs crawling across her skin. It was literally, exactly what a nightmare would be, she said.

Schemel contacted management. He said exterminators came out every week for at least five weeks. The couple washed and dried their clothes and other fabrics on extreme heat. We ended up burning some nice articles, including a teddy bear that Goveys grandparents gave her when she was born, he said.

They packed up most of their belongings and kept them in a storage unit and in Schemels car. During this time, someone broke into my car and stole all my clothing, he said.

After the treatments, they moved everything back in, thinking the bugs were gone, but they returned. Exterminators were sent out again, but we said we are not packing up, you can exterminate around us, Schemel said.

During the treatments, Govey said, It became us living out of boxes, living in the same three outfits, spending every night vacuuming the bedding and box springs. It was a pretty large factor in a lot of fights.

After the second round of treatments, We stopped getting bit but kept finding remnants, dead carcasses, (bug) poop. By this time I had started making friends at the apartment complex and heard others were having the same issue, Schemel said.

Govey moved out of the small apartment in early August last year. Schemel moved out after his lease expired in December, but he still gets phantom feelings of bedbugs crawling across his skin.

The apartment was treated for bedbugs in December 2015, Potrero Launch management said in an email. The pest control contractor followed their standard protocol, treating the unit three times, and inspecting adjacent units for infestation. No bedbugs were found and the issue was isolated to the one apartment. There was an apparent reinfestation of the same residents apartment in March 2016, which was treated following the same protocol. The resident moved out in December 2016 and there have been no further reports of bedbugs for any unit on the property.

Govey still has her fried teddy bear. Its a sad reminder of the torture of these bugs, she said.

High Heat Sparks Ant Invasion CBS Los Angeles – CBS Los Angeles

SAUGUS (CBSLA.com)The heat is bringing out the ants.

As KCAL9/CBS2s Greg Mills reports, local residents are dealing with the insect invasion in different ways.

I saw them yesterday and this morning as I was walking my dog, said Burbank resident Diego Herrera.

The ants invaded his home so he called the pest control guy who just happens to be his brother.

Exterminator Marco Herrera said that this is the time of the year when he normally sees ants.

Absolutely. In these temperatures, especially when its dry, said Marco Herrera.

He said ants are drawn to water, so bathrooms and kitchens are prime targets once they get inside the house. They hit a double jackpot in the kitchen with water and food sources.

Marco Herreras mission: Keep the uninvited insects out of the house with insecticide that does in the ants but, he said, doesnt damage anything else.

And he knows where to find their colony.

Theyre usually going to be in very dry areas, Marco Herrera said. Maybe planters.

Ants live in the dirt, he said. In nests or nodes.

He takes aim at them in their home so they stay out of yours.

What about home remedies?

Some use borax. Others say talcum powder stops the ants.

Soap and water tends to work well. Windex seems to work well, said Marco Herrera.

Go online and youll find a ton of tips for when the ants come marching in.

Marco Herrera said the effectiveness of low-cost, low-tech solutions is low too.

That material wont get down into the node or nest so it wont give you a long term effect, he said.

Texas Floods Bring Floating Fire Ant Colonies – PCT Magazine

INDIANAPOLIS – The IPM Experience House in Dallas is the newest hands-on setting for seeing the Sentricon System at work. One of just a handful of similar facilities around the country, the IPM Experience House is intended as a working classroom where pest management professionals (PMPs) can gain experience in settings similar to where they will be working. The facility is designed and maintained by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, with an intent to show PMPs what to look for and how to treat household and commercial pests.

Dow AgroSciences has been a substantial contributor to the house since its inception. Not only was Dow AgroSciences the first donor, its one of the largest. This spring, Sentricon bait stations were installed around the front and side of the house to provide a valuable termite control learning experience focused on the baiting system. Although the house has no current signs of infestation and no termites have been detected in monitors, according to Dr. Mike Merchant, Extension Urban Entomologist and director of the facility, the stations have much value.

We anticipate the Sentricon stations will be a great learning experience for new technicians who may never have seen a baiting system at work. The Sentricon system has been a useful tool in termite control for a long time, but there is a new generation of PMPs out there who are not very familiar with baits, he said. This gives us a chance to explain the science behind baiting and, we hope, a chance to see the stations at work.

The house, which opened its doors in spring 2017, is an old dormitory. The house is already being used as a site for training classes on termites, mosquitoes and other general household pests. In addition, features are being added that will allow visitors to go on a self-guided tour.

Were still working on furnishing and interpreting a number of house features, Merchant said. Our goal is for PMPs to be able to spend as much, or as little, time as theyd like in each room, depending on their professional focus.

The IPM Experience House consists of several rooms, each demonstrating special features related to pest control. Rooms include mock commercial and residential kitchens, a pantry, nursing home room, hotel room and a residential living room with television and sofas. The living room is sponsored by Dow AgroSciences and is named the Sentricon Room.

Observant visitors will notice the house holds some surprises, like a live German cockroach infestation in one of the kitchen cabinets or an active colony of powderpost beetles in some decorative wood balls. There is also, according to Merchant, a low-level resident population of American cockroaches. And a lot of spiders! Merchant said. We cant vacuum and mop fast enough to keep the spiders out completely.

The site is still under construction, but once finished, it also will have a covered pavilion with simulated crawl spaces, an open concrete pad to practice spill control and different types of foundations to practice with.
