Bed Bug iStock_000054168464_LargeMontgomery County’s Department of Health and Human Services (H&HS) is dealing with a bed bug infestation at its headquarters at 401 Hungerford Drive in Rockville. H&HS Director Uma Ahluwalia says the department employs 400 employees at this location and she does not expect them back at the Hungerford location until the building is habitable, which will be the end of the week. Until then, H&HS employees have been relocated to other offices or they are working at home.

A meeting to discuss the bed bug infestation with employees was held on Friday afternoon at the Executive Office Building in Rockville, and during that meeting Ahluwalia said that when employees return to their offices they will notice that furniture in the lobby is missing because it has been thrown away. She also commended the resilience of H&HS employees during this unusual occurrence.

    Google Bed Sized Bed Bug Trap to convert entire bed into a bed bug trap with sleeper as inaccessible CO2 trap. The invention forces every bed bug to seek sleepers and die on the way for food without survivor. No one kills ants by vacuum and steam instead of poison bait. No one should have killed bed bugs by vacuum and steam instead of bed sized trap. Poison baits easily kill 100% ants. Ants find baits at mm distance, while bed bugs find bed sized trap at meter distance. Killing bed bugs can be more efficient than killing ants. A tent can eliminate mosquito bite by camping inside tent or reduce mosquito bites by sealing some mosquitos inside a bush. An encasement protects mattress. A bed sized trap protects sleeper. Use of a mattress encasement is as nonsense as camping outside tent which has been used to seal some mosquitoes in a bush.
