Bed Bug Removal NYC | Long Island | Brooklyn | Queens


Bed Bug Infestations Increasing in New York

Bed bug infestations have grown dramatically. Just five years ago, bed bugs on Long Island, New York City, Westchester or Rockland County were rare. Since then, bed bug infestations are up over 125%.

The National Pest Management Association’s bed bug study “Bugs without Borders” has been tracking the trend. In 2001, only 11% of pest control companies nationwide had responded to a bed bug call. By 2011, more than 99% had dealt with bed bug infestations. 84% say calls for bed bug treatment are increasing.

  • 82% increased travel
  • 66% lack of awareness and vigilance
  • 57% changing pest control method
  • 50% resistance to insecticides

Bed Bugs Move Beyond Beds to Infest Commercial Properties

Bed bug infestations are now common in places of business.

  • 90% of pest control companies have treated bed bugs in apartments, condominiums and single-family homes
  • 80% in hotels and motels—up 67% between 2010 and 2011
  • 54% in college dorms—up from 35% a year ago
