Newest Top 10 Bed Bug Cities – Summer 2017

In its latest report, Terminix revealed its top infested bed bug cities. As summer travels come to a close it’s important to be aware that infestations are rapidly increasing due to more Americans traveling for work and leisure while bed bugs are becoming resistant to pesticides and harmful chemicals that are commonly used. This makes it very hard to get rid of bed bugs in hotels, apartments, and homes. Moreover, this is why we sell the best and easiest to use heat treatment tools – The PrevSol Bed Bug Heaters.

If you or staff are not actively checking for bed bugs, they can hide undetected for very long periods of time from weeks to months. You may notice reddish-brown blood spots from bed bug waste and excrements, musty odors, and also live or dead bed bugs themselves. They most are most commonly compared to looking like an apple seed. If you think that you have signs of these pests, it is important to quickly proceed with a heat treatment before the infestation get’s out of hand. As always, self-treatment is one of the most cost effective ways to remove bed bugs.
