Don’t Like Bed Bugs? Avoid These Cities
I don't know about you, but when I travel I'm always on the lookout for bed bugs and I make sure I never put my suitcase on the bed. Then when I'm home I wash everything I took with me (whether I wore it or not).
Here are some cities you either may want to avoid or take extra precaution if you are visiting them this summer. Thankfully, there are no Montana cities on this list.
Orkin, a pest control company, has named the top 50 bed bug cities in the United States. You can pick up bed bugs at stores, offices, and on your luggage when you travel. They are a reddish brown and can vary in size from the size of a head pin to and apple seed. Bed bugs thrive at night and feed on blood. Gross!
