Many people use the popular delivery service of UPS, to have their packages delivered from distributers and retailers from around the world. But no one expects to find a bed bug or an entire infestation, upon opening their UPS delivered package. A bed bug can easily slip into a UPS package. This is because if bed bugs are encountered anywhere along the UPS package delivery route system, the bed bugs can hitch a ride inside of your package to come home to you.
“Help, I Need to Know What Are My Rights When I Got a UPS Package Infested with Bed Bugs?”
If you open a package delivered from UPS, you will hardly believe that you have opened a package of bed bugs. This would seem like an isolated and ultra-rare case, but it can and does happen much more frequently than people would like to believe. Bed bugs are from the species of bugs called the family of Cimicidae, in the insect order of Hemiptera. A bed but can suck blood from a host or human, and has piercing mouths to get blood for their meals. The common bed bug is found all over Northern America and in Europe. Therefore, it is not unusual to find them in a package delivered from anywhere in the world to your door.
How Does a Bed Bug Infestation Spread in the Home?
When you receive a UPS package full of bed bugs, you rarely get any notification of this fact beforehand. You most likely received the UPS package at your door, brought it inside and opened it either on the flooring if it was heavy, or on a table or counter. After opening the box, you may have discarded into the kitchen trash bin, the recycling bin in the home or nearby areas, or put it into the basement. You also may have used the package to store other household possessions, used in another room in the home or office or may have dismantled the box for use at another time to repurpose the same package for someone else’s gift. In all of these cases, you are prime for spreading an infestation of bed bugs in your home, apartment or office space.
Bed bugs are happy to hitch a ride in the corrugated areas of a box package. That means that the bed bugs can hide in the glued seams of a package quite easily. They are hidden from view from you, even after you open the package, and even if you “shake-out” the box. They hide and can stay in a box for a long time. A bed bug can survive nearly a year without a blood meal, if it is a mature bug, and will patiently wait to bite someone if the meal is nearby at any stage of the life cycle.
What Are the Typical Personal Injuries from a Bed Bug Infestation?
