Memphis, Tenn. (PRWEB) July 09, 2013

Additionally, reports of bedbugs are increasing in some areas of the country not previously prone to outbreaks, indicating they are on the move.

Terminix, the worlds largest pest control provider, today released its list of cities experiencing the largest increases in bedbug activity, with Sacramento, Calif. taking the top spot with a 54% jump in bedbug customer calls compared to this same time last year.

Bedbugs continue to have a significant presence across the country, in cities large and small, and pose concern for public health, said Stan Cope, PhD and entomologist with Terminix. There is now evidence  that suggests that severe bedbug infestations may be associated with anemia. Also, bedbug bites can result in secondary infections due to excessive scratching. Bedbug infestations are also known to have a psychological impact and can cause emotional stress and irritability, so if you think you have an issue with bedbugs you should immediately contact a professional to treat your home or business, added Cope.

Terminix created the list by compiling and analyzing bedbug-specific call volume to its more than 300 branches throughout the country. The rankings represent cities with the biggest replicas relojes percentage gains in bedbug customer calls from Jan-May 2013 compared to the same time period in 2012. Eight of the cities Columbus, Los Angeles, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, Baltimore, Louisville, Cleveland and San Francisco are also among the top 15 cities in total number of bedbug customer calls year-to-date for 2013. Once relegated to primarily major cities, bedbugs are good travelers and have been reported by nearly all of the Terminix branches throughout the country.

Bedbugs are usually transported from one location to another as people travel. They can travel in the seams of luggage, carry-on bags, folded clothing and furniture. Because bedbugs can go several months without a blood meal, its a good idea to thoroughly inspect luggage and mattresses when traveling. When bedbugs bite, they inject an anesthetic and anticoagulant that prevents a person from feeling the bite. Because these bites generally occur while people are sleeping, they dont realize theyve been bitten until small marks appear which are generally slightly swollen, red and may itch.

Terminix offers the following tips to mitigate the risk of being bitten or transporting bedbugs:

  •   Check hotel headboards, mattresses and box springs for live bedbugs, their exoskeletons and/or dark blood spots.
  •  Hang all clothing. Leave nothing lying on the bed or furniture.
  •  Avoid storing clothing in a hotels furniture drawers.
  •  Store suitcases on a luggage rack as far away from the bed as possible.
  •  Vacuum suitcases when returning home, and immediately wash clothing in hot water.
  •  Between trips, store luggage in a sealed plastic bag in a garage or basement, away from bedrooms.
  •  If you suspect you have bedbugs, have your home inspected by a trained professional. Bed bugs cannot be controlled by over-the-counter treatments.
