I got a call today from some friends who found bed bugs in their storage unit! We got the storage unit the week after Christmas and we were going to tear it down completely. We’re not sure how it happened, but we were taking all of those blankets to put back up. We found bed bugs in them and all our blankets were covered in bites.
I don’t know how you can sleep in a bed that you don’t want to sleep in. They are so hard to get rid of.
The bugs are all over the place in the storage unit, but they are most concentrated in the bedrooms. It’s been an issue since we moved in and we are constantly having to call the owner of the unit to come and clean it up every night.
If you have ever slept in a storage unit, you know what we mean. These units are filthy. If you don’t have the right tools to clean them up, you’re likely to get bitten again. These units are especially difficult to clean because they are basically designed to be a temporary home. Often, a person will put them in storage for months and then move them to another location. But they are literally designed to be temporary.
If you have bed bugs in your unit, you can’t just move them to another location. Not really. They need to be removed. But you have to be a really bad person to take them down yourself.
I just discovered this, and have no idea whether its true or not. But if you have bed bugs in your storage unit, the best thing to do is to take them out. If you don’t, they’ll eventually multiply and spread to other people’s storage units.
In the video below, we see bed bugs in a storage unit. It’s not really a bad idea to take out bed bugs. Their only real purpose is to eat you. But I can’t imagine that you’d want to go through all the hassle of killing them. Its not like you’d have the money to purchase anti-bacterial soap and a bleach solution.
For all the horror stories about bed bugs, they are generally not deadly to humans. The most people have died from malaria as a result of eating bed bugs. But many other diseases have been suspected of being caused by bed bugs, such as Q fever and toxoplasmosis.
Bed bugs have been found in many different kinds of storage units, but most of the ones I have seen have been in vehicles, not private homes. In some cases the beds were left on floors where they could easily have gotten into the vehicle. In other cases there is no bedding in a unit. That makes the problem worse because people are sleeping on bare floorboards, which means they are still in contact with the bugs.
You might be wondering how safe your new storage unit is. Well, because you’re in a storage unit, you have access to all the good stuff. The bad stuff is still out there. In fact, the bad stuff is everywhere. It’s not only the bugs that are making it difficult to sleep, but the dust and other debris that has accumulated on the floors in the unit.
