Florida Bed Bug Lawyer Craig Dell shares interesting facts and surveys about Bed Bug Infestation
According to the National Pest Management and University of Kentucky Bugs Without Borders Survey, 95% of the pest termination companies have encountered a bug infestation in the past year. Problems with Bed Bugs predominantly occur in suburban and urban areas with large populations of people who interact in congested spaces. The occurrence and frequency of Bed Bugs is three times higher in metropolitan areas than in rural areas due to the following factors: apartment living, increased mobility and larger population size, which are advantageous to the fast spread and breeding of Bed Bugs. Bed Bugs like to hitchhike on people and their belongings causing infestation to spread at a rapid pace in urban areas like Fort Lauderdale, Miami and Orlando.
