Sure, NYC is beautiful, but behind these city walls live lots and lots of BEDBUGS!
According to a recent study by Terminix, bedbugs are more prevalent in New York City than anywhere else in the U.S.A. Behind the City That Never Sleeps on a list of 15 most bedbug-infested locations are the cities of Philadelphia and Detroit, in fourth place is Cincinnati marking the first of three Ohio cities making the top ten.
The list also includes Chicago, Denver, Columbus, Ohio, Dayton, Ohio, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Boston, Indianapolis, Louisville, Kentucky, Cleveland and Minneapolis.
Entomologist for Terminix, Paul Curtis, says “It’s no surprise that highly trafficked cities such as New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles are on the list.”
He continues with “It’s the bedbug problems in cities like Dayton and Louisville that prove bedbugs are back and can pop up anywhere. The bedbug problems in these cities out-space markets of far greater size despite their having a fraction of the population and typically fewer travelers and hotels.”
