New York City Bed Bug Epidemic

Infestations Serge in Metro NYC & Surrounding Areas

If you live in the New York Metro area you can't have helped hearing the ongoing news about the bed bug epidemic. Just this week there have been reports on the local news channels, newspapers and business journals about the bed bug crisis.

New York City announced they will be setting up a bed bug task force and naming a bed bug czar to spear head a group that will deal solely with the bed bug issue in New York City.

It is reported that one in every 15 New Yorkers has been personally affected by bed bugs. It is important to know that this problem is not just limited to the NY Metro area. The suburbs of Westchester, Rockland and Fairfield County are all also experiencing a huge growth in bed bug infestations.

What people and government bodies have learned in NY City is that people must be proactive about this problem. The earlier bed bug infestations are discovered the easier they are to eliminate. If you are commuting to Manhattan you may be bringing bed bugs home to the suburbs with you. Bed bugs travel on trains and subways and have also been found in many office buildings throughout Manhattan. Recently bed bug infestations have also been discovered in many mainstream retail stores in New York City.
