Orkin Canada has released its third annual list of top bed bug cities, and Windsor has made the top 25 coming in 11th.

The findings by Orkin Canada are based on the number of commercial and residential bed bug treatments carried out by the country’s largest pest control provider.

Orkin says that in less than two decades, Cimex lectularius, better known as bed bugs, have gone from a rarely experienced irritant to a major problem thriving in clean and dirty homes alike.

What to look for:

  • Tiny dark coloured stains, cast skins or live bed bugs.

Where to look:

  • Mattress tags and seams, under seat cushions, behind headboards, creases of drawers, buckling wallpaper or carpet.

Prevention Tips:

  • Dry potentially infested bed linens or clothing on the highest heat setting possible.
  • Inspect all second-hand furniture before bringing it into your home.
  • Before returning home after travel, examine your bags, inspect your clothing and other items for bed bugs.
