In a recent article published by king 5 news, it stated Seattle, WA was the 13th worst city for bed bugs in the United States. This came as a shock to Seattle residents as we are known for great coffee, beautiful summers and lots of rain.
At Redi-National we are not surprised to hear this statistic, as we notice more bed bug related calls every summer. This has to do with the influx of people we get in Seattle to enjoy our beautiful summer. Traveling people usually tend to bring whatever they have back home, in this case bed bugs. Bed bugs can attach themselves to luggage, clothes and shoes. When these travelers stay in our hotels or with friends we get a bed bug infestation. It only takes two bed bugs to become thousands if left untreated for months.
The top 10 cities for bed bugs include Denver, New York, Dallas and Chicago which took the first place in the list.
