After four years claiming the spot as #1 city for bed bugs, Chicago has now fallen to #3. Baltimore on the other hand, has increased NINE spots since last year to take the #1 spot. DC has taken over the #2 spot.
Basically, bed bugs love the DMV. But who doesn't?
Orkin provided a list of tips for keeping bedbugs at bay:
• Inspect regularly — including bed sheets, mattress seams, picture frames, outlets.
• Decrease clutter to make bedbugs easier to spot.
• Quarantine and inspect secondhand furniture before bringing it home.
• Dry infected linens, curtains, etc., on the highest-available dryer temperature to kill the bugs.
