Is It Risky to Check Out A Library Book?

Old booksWe had a previous blog post about bed bugs (Cimex lectulariushiding in returned library books and how these books can be the cause of a bed bug infestation. Kristian Wilson at points out that library books which pose the biggest risk would also be heavily soiled so librarians likely wouldn’t return those books to circulation. Also, the library is at a greater risk of infestation than the homes of library patrons because libraries are accepting items back from so many different houses and their furniture could become infested. Kristian also pointed to some great resources for librarians such as this online training video for prevention and treatment of bed bug infestations as well as this PDF on what to look for to spot an infestation in a library item.

While it is true heavily infested items pose the greatest risk, all it takes is one bed bug to cause an outbreak in your home. An adult bed bug can lay as many as three eggs a day and 300 eggs in its lifetime so populations can grow pretty quickly. The best thing to do is educate yourself about signs of bed bugs and request an inspection from a professional exterminator if you have any infestation concerns. This shouldn’t cause you to rethink using your local library, so enjoy all the amazing resources they offer!

What Are Bed Bugs?

Bed bugs are small insects that are normally a red or brown color. They’re smaller than a penny, so you may have a hard time seeing them. These bugs live off of human and animal blood, and they can be found all over the country and world.

Are Bed Bugs Dangerous?

Bed bugs aren’t typically considered dangerous, as they don’t carry any diseases or sicknesses. However, their bites can be annoying, and some people may suffer an allergic reaction to the bites. These bugs will normally leave a small bite mark that’s noticeable after the person wakes up.

What Are Signs of Bed Bugs?

While the bugs are difficult to see, especially because they hide during the day, you can look for small exoskeletons or small, rust-colored spots on the sheets. You may also notice a sweet, musty smell around the bed.
