Chicago was the scene of the latest attack against bed bugs. Many of the leading bed bug exterminators as well as companies that provide bed bug related items met in Chicago for the Bed Bug University North American Summit.
The Safer Pest Control Project has been monitoring pest activity in the Chicago area for 17 years. The project reports bed bugs are particularly a problem in multiple-dwelling structures — public and private.
The project’s executive director says, while the beds bug may not lead to the health problems of other pests, controlling these particular bugs can be more expensive.
