How many people are affected by bed bugs?

    There apparently aren’t that many statistics kept about bed bugs because they do not pose any serious health risks and infestations are relatively infrequent. But in a survey in December 2004 by Pest Control Technology magazine, about 40% of calls regarding bed bugs originated from hotels or motels.

    “In a 2006 survey of 700 client hotels, the pest-control company Steritech found that 24.4% required treatment for bedbugs from November 2002 to April 2006, though only .6% of 76,000 rooms were infested. Overall, the National Pest Management Association says bedbug reports increased 71% from 2000 to 2005, with member companies that had received one or two calls a year now logging 10 to 50 a week.”
