Bed bug infestations have been on the rise in the United States as well as in many other parts of the world. Multiple factors contribute to this, but the net effect is that it has become a problem for more people. As a result, the medical fraternity has started doing research on this phenomenon, and part of this is doing a demographic study to find out the cities that have the highest bed bug infestation rates.
The city of Detroit has been shown to be one of the most bed bug infested cities in the country. There are measures being researched and put in place to reduce this proliferation, and residents are advised on methods of ensuring that they are not overly affected by the infestations.
Minneapolis, the city of lakes, is also a victim of bed bug infestations. Many pest control businesses report an increase in business regarding eradication of pests, and the city is also setting up industrial sized heating machines to eradicate the bugs from housing projects.
Cleveland is home to the Rock and Roll house of fame, but has had to deal with increasing bed bug infestations in the recent past. Statistics show that bed bugs are on average double the number they were last year, and this is likely to keep growing if nothing is done about it.
The city of Louisville in Kentucky is also facing a major bed bug epidemic, and local authorities and state agencies are showing signs of helplessness about the situation. It is therefore up to the residents of the city to come up with methods of dealing with the infestation. Other cities with major problems with bed bug infestations include Indianapolis, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Dayton OH, Columbus OH, Denver, Chicago, and Cincinnati.
