HOUSTON -- It looks like the Bayou City has earned a spot among the most bedbug-infested cities in the country. According to a study conducted by Terminix, Houston ranked No. 12 on their top-15 list. The only good news? Dallas was No. 11. But seriously, Terminix created the list by compiling data from their 300 branches across the U.S. Researchers evaluated bedbug-related service calls from customers, as well as confirmed cases by service professionals. "Bedbugs continue to increase their presence across the U.S.," said Stoy Hedges, an entomologist with Terminix. "While major metropolitan areas are most at risk, it is important to note that bedbugs have been spotted in cities and towns across the country." Philadelphia took top honors this year, followed by Cincinnati; New York City; Chicago; Detroit; Washington, D.C.; Columbus, Ohio; San Francisco; Denver, New Haven, Conn.; Dallas, Houston, Indianapolis, Miami and Cleveland.
my daughter just told me that her neighbor found bed bugs in her kids room & had to get a company to come out & incase her entire home in a huge like plastic baggie & blow chemicals & hot air into her home for 24 hours ...cost was $2,000. ....with a 30 day guarantee . expensive to say the least....
those little critters are every where & will ride home with you in your purse on on your sox , once they get in , it will cost you a small fortune to get rid of them . So check everything , each square inch or you just might be giving them a free ride to your home.
