These 2 Texas Cities Made the List For The Cities With The Most Bed Bugs!
Bed Bugs suck! Lol Let's be real, no one ever wants to deal with bed bugs. And. most of the time when you think of bed bugs, you think of Hotels or Motels. But, not only is it commercial properties like hotels but also residential. Orkin made a list of the top cities that have a bed bug problem, hey they should know, and two Texas cities made the list.
#17 DALLAS-FT.WORTH, TEXAS
Not high on the list, so that's a good thing, but Dallas-Ft. Worth Texas made the list on Cities with Bed Bug problems.
According to usatoday....
Bedbugs can travel quickly and have an ability to latch onto furniture and other items.
The critters can be brought into the home from places where people are dormant for periods of time, like bus seats, airplanes or theater cushions, etc.
They can sneak into your home through purses and luggage as well. Once they are in the home, they can hide in bedroom furniture such as a mattress, box spring and bed frame.
#44 HOUSTON, TEXAS
Houston, Texas is the only other Texas city to make the list. Not surprised 2 huge Texas Cities are on the list. More people, the more bugs, you would think.
