Bed Bugs

 

The presence of bedbugs in our society is growing.  Bed bugs are becoming more and more prevalent in our houses, hotels, and other public places.  The resurgence has prompted the Delaware General Health District and many public health officials to take notice of their numbers and start educating our residents on the effects of bedbugs, their control, and effective management strategies. Currently, the Residential Services Unit offers awareness workshops for the community.  For information on a date and time or to request a workshop, please contact us.

If you would like us to help you identify a possible bedbug, please take a picture of it (preferably with a magnifying glass between the lense and the bug) and send the photo to delawarehealth@delawarehealth.org
