The rise in bed bug lawsuits has been a widely discussed topic for Property Manager and Landlords in the past 10 years. As the number of court cases rise, the more of a concern a possible legal claim becomes. In the past, the majority of cases we have seen in court involve a guest or tenant suing a negligent business owner or property manager for failing to solve a bed bug related issue. But now, we have seen one of the first cases of a Landlord suing a tenant for failing to comply with extermination efforts for an extreme bed bug issue. Bed bugs cause damage to furniture, walls, carpeting and other areas in an infested home, so it makes sense that a proactive landlord would want to solve any bed bug sighting as soon as possible to avoid further damage. But when a tenant refuses service and doesn’t take any action to keep the bed bugs away, we can see cases like this one…
There are many methods and businesses that promise to kill bed bugs. Some methods require chemicals being dumped into your home, other require many hours of cleaning and discarding furniture to get rid of the pests. While all of these countess DIY options promise to kill bed bugs, the truth remains that these treatments are not very accurate. Many people are still left with a bed bug problem after many DIY applications and inexperienced chemical treatments that can even allow the infestation to grow and spread to other rooms. Do you really want to spend months and 100’s of dollars trying to get rid of bed bugs? There is a safe and easy way to kill bugs by hiring a professional bed bug exterminator that offers heat treatments. AZEX Pest Solutions offers the revolutionary and eco-friendly Steriheat treatment.

Bed bugs inhabit every country on the planet, will feed on anyone, and can live in many climates. They usually hide during the day and come out at night to feed on our blood while we sleep. They cause sleepless nights, pain and itching (at the site of bites) and paranoia. Many people find themselves asking where did they come from? How did they get here? The history of bed bugs is long, dating back at least 3,000 years. People have used many ways to rid themselves of these unwanted pests, and even tried to find ways to use them to cure medical ailments.
Arizona is one of the few states to be blessed with mild climates year round. While many people may enjoy these warm winter months, the warmth also allows for many insects to remain alive and active year round. Because of this, residents of Arizona are encouraged to stick to a year round pest control plan to make sure their house isn’t home to dangerous and unwanted insects.
Winter pests in Arizona include many of the same pests that you might see during the warmer summer months. Many bugs will simple move indoors to avoid the colder nights and occasional winter storms. Arizona residents should be prepared for these pests to remain during the winter and take precautions as needed.
Bed Bugs can’t fly or jump, many are smaller than a grain of rice, the eggs can be almost microscopic, and yet they still inhabit most areas of our globe. Bed Bugs have been found in every US State as well as other counties including Canada, Europe, and Africa. Many bed bug sightings happen in modern families home, nice Hotels/ Motels, and even public places like movie theaters and public transportation.
