Bed Bugs On the Rise in Dorms, Day Cares
Posted by Shifrah on Monday, August 22, 2011
You may think that the resurgence of bedbug infestations has died down, but unfortunately that's not the case. In Bedbug infestations growing in certain settings, survey finds, the Washington Post reports that bedbug problems continue to plague people across the nation.

The National Pest Management Association and the University of Kentucky recently released a survey of more than 400 pest management companies that indicates a double-digit growth in infestations – in just the past year alone. Specifically of concern to the thousands of children of all ages returning to school (and their parents) is that 54 percent of pest companies reported treating bedbugs in college dorms, compared to 35 percent in 2010. In addition, 36 percent reported treating schools and day cares for bedbugs, a figure "more than triple the 10 percent in 2010."

National Pest Management Spokeswoman Missy Henriksen says the reason for the increase in treatment for infestations is likely two-pronged: Bedbug populations are on the rise, and people are more aware of the problem. She adds, "With bedbug populations spreading, it’s important that people understand each and every one of us has the potential to get bedbugs."
