Just as students head back to college and families finish summer vacations comes the latest bad news from pest control companies: Bedbug infestations are getting worse and becoming more common in some places, including dorms, hotels, nursing homes, hospitals, office buildings, and schools and day-care centers.
According to a survey released Wednesday by the National Pest Management Association and the University of Kentucky, pest control companies say there has been double-digit growth in infestations in the past year.
About 54 percent of pest companies reported treating bedbugs in college dorms, compared with 35 percent in 2010; 80 percent reported treating hotels, compared with 67 percent the year before, and 36 percent report treating schools and day-care settings for the bugs, more than triple the 10 percent in 2010.

Don’t let the bed bugs byte....
The one person who finds out how to put a stop to this will become very, filthy, rich.
No useful information, just fear mongering.
Another wonderful side-effect of multiculturalism, diversity, and a sincere lack of immigration screening.
We HAVE the answer to this problem but won’t use it.
Dursban or DDT fer cryin’ out loud!!!
DDT. But we can't do that any more.
Well, we don’t use silly things like common sense anymore, so someone will have to come up with another solution.
DDT! Where's my money??
I hope these crawl into the beds of lots of Democrats.
Only a matter of time really, only a matter of time.
The turd worlding of America rages on!
Just infesting the beds Americans refuse to infest...
IIRC the problem with bed bugs isn’t Nixon’s DDT ban, but Clinton’s EPA’s ban on a couple newer pesticides. DDT had worked on them in 1950s, but they’ve since developed resistance.
Bedbugs, tuberculosis, STDs and AIDS are all part and parcel of the transfer of the USA into a third world nation by the Democrats via their immigration policies, and entitlement programs.
Environmentalists will be opposed to pesticides because of their belief in the intrinsic value of nature and the nonvalue of man, and so they won’t care about his well being and quality of life.
I have a sister-in-law who is leaving the apartment she just moved into a few months ago due to a continuing bedbug infestation. She’s fought them constantly since they appeared, and it sounds like an utterly miserable experience. The suckers go for clothes, beds, books - basically you end up throwing a lot of stuff away. Sounds like we need to bring back DDT pronto and stop catering to the environazi lobby.
