Monitoring Phoenix Bed Bug Infestations

Over the past few months, we have been monitoring the Bed Bug Registry to watch for infestation outbreaks throughout the entire country. Right away, you’ll notice that most of the infestations are occurring in the Northeast part of the United States, but many are still appearing in Phoenix and Tucson.

Notice anything unusual with the map above? (Each red dot indicates an infestation at an apartment or hotel.) It appears that the infestations are aligning with our highway system in Phoenix! If you think about it, this makes perfect sense. A good amount of travelers from other states use our highway systems and tend to make use of the hotels that are right near the highways. When they arrive, some tourists bring their bed bugs from out of state which spreads the pest’s reach.

What can you do to protect yourself? Before you check-in to a hotel, check the registry to ensure there have not been any recent infestations. Avoid the hassle of dealing with bed bugs!
