Bed bug infestations in the Northeast Ohio area are on the rise. Cleveland ranks #8 in a list that ranks the top cities in the country for bed bug infestations. The list was compiled by Orkin, for their 2022 Top 50 Bed Bug Cities List. The rankings are based off of Orkin appointment data in city areas and measures the time frame between December 2020 to November 2021.

Cleveland was not the only Ohio city in the top ten. Columbus ranked number 9 and Cincinnati number 10.  But these Ohio urban areas had tough competition, and did not beat the major cities overall. Chicago followed by Philadelphia and New York made up the top 3. Smaller cities such as Detroit and Baltimore also made the top ten and beat Cleveland from their positions at #4 and #5 respectively.

What are bed bugs? Bed bugs are parasites that feed off the blood of their hosts while they sleep. About the size of an apple seed, they spread to other areas through furniture, purses / bags, and clothing. If you think you have a bed bug infestation, it is important to start a treatment plan as soon as possible. Waiting for the problem to resolve itself is futile. Bed bugs can survive months without food. Furthermore, a female bed bug can lay 200-250 eggs in its lifetime so it is crucial that steps are taken to prevent a full blown infestation.
