In a recent list compiled by Terminix, Minneapolis Minnesota was ranked the country’s 15th most bed bug infested city. Major cities and even smaller communities in Minnesota, Nebraska and throughout the country are being infested at an alarming rate. Bed bugs are being detected in residential dwellings, multi-unit housing complexes, hotels and hospitals. These nighttime pests are shutting down retail stores, office buildings and other commercial operations and are hitching rides on public modes of transportation.
Before the ban of DDT, the chemical was successful in the near-eradication of the pest in the 1940s and 1950s. Nowadays there are several treatment options available and while they are all reported to be effective in getting rid of bed bugs, some options are a better choice for complete elimination in one treatment than others.
