This Nation’s bedbug problem is real, and a growing area of concern in Las Vegas, NV. A consumer report, reported by ABC News earlier this year, ranks the city of Las Vegas as the 16th most infected bedbug city in the United States. The cities of Cincinnati, Chicago, Detroit, Denver, and Los Angeles make up the top five most infested cities in that order.
Bedbugs were thought to be a thing of the past, but now every state has had reports of the tiny pests. Since exterminators can no longer legally use the same pesticides they used in the 1950s to get rid of, they now must get creative to stop a bedbug epidemic. Here’s an informative graphic that helps us understand this growing epidemic even more:
For those of you concerned about bedbugs in one of the major Las Vegas hotels or resorts, rest easy. Many of the bedbug reports are coming from private residents. These resorts take great measures in assuring their rooms a bedbug free. If you are doing some traveling to Las Vegas in the near future, and are worried about the possibility of bringing bedbugs home with you, check out the website BedBugRegistry.com. The website allows you to check and see if your hotel has had any recent reported bedbug activity. Make sure to keep in mind that just because a hotel had a bedbug report once, it doesn’t mean it has a widespread problem. Also, understand that these are all personal reports by travelers and the ability to authenticate each and every account is impossible. What might be a harmless insect to a professional can be a bedbug to a worn out traveler.
If you are a Las Vegas resident, and suspect that you have brought bedbugs into your home, it’s best that you call a professional pest control company immediately. Bedbugs are very difficult to get rid of, and even scientists have discovered that the bugs are now more resistant to once effective pesticides.
