What a Busy Week - Cockroaches, Rodents and Bed Bugs

It has been such a busy week at Kiwicare. I wrote a press release about the ongoing interest in cockroaches and how to get rid of them that has seen unusually high sales of cockroach control products and searches for information on how to get rid of cockroaches on the Kiwicare website. This caught the imagination of several media organizations including the Nelson Mail. The Mail made the connection with the weather conditions and the 'plague' of rats that they have been experiencing in that region.

I was also asked by the reporter Laura Basham what the next 'big thing' will be. I was able to tell her that bed bugs are the problem that will continue to grow as a problem in New Zealand, particularly in the accommodation industry. New Zealand is catching up on the rest of the world as bed bugs as carried into the country and transported around it by travelers in their luggage and clothing.

The Mail ran the article and the bed bug issue was picked up by RadioNZ National and our Neil Martin was interviewed on Jim Mora's Afternoon Show.

If you suspect you have brought bed bugs into your home you can check out how to find the bugs and how to deal with them at the Kiwicare Bed Bug page.

A bed bug walks into a bar and coughs to get the barman's attention. The barman turns and says "I'd heard there was a nasty bug going around."
