We mentioned before that bed bugs don’t pick a place where to stay. May it be clean or not, they will go there as long as there is a host.
But what if the host intended to neglect the place by not cleaning hence attracting more bed bugs and even other pests.
We feel sorry for children that have to deal with bed bugs because of someone’s negligence. If only they can do the work of cleaning and spraying residual bed bug spray. Then they don’t have to deal with bites and rashes.
She didn't feel like cleaning...
A couple who didn’t feel like cleaning left trash, bugs, animal urine and feces inside their house while living with 2 kids.
Those are just some of the conditions Horry County police said when they saw the 2 children living in at Socastee home on Monday.
According to Myrtle Beach Online, there were reports saying that there is a “strange odor that was possibly drug related”.
Police say that they saw several cats that roams in and out of the home through the hole in the kitchen window.
The kitchen was full of dirty dishes, covered in bugs and trash was “everywhere”.
The kids were full of rashes and bed bug bites.
“The house was full of various insects. There were several animals in the home that were in poor condition, to include a pit bull, wild squirrel and a cat with an infected wound on its head,” the report said.
“There was no floor space (or bed space) visible in the bedroom where the children slept, due to dirty clothes and trash,” an officer wrote in the report. “The odor was unbearable.”
