Bed Bug Epidemic Discussed in Denver

500 of the industry’s leading Bed Bug professionals met in Denver, Colorado in the beginning of December, 2013. The big discussion question posed to all attendees was “Are we making progress?” The answer was yes and no.

Since bed bugs re-emerged in large numbers in the mid-2000s until today, great strides have been made in better understanding bed bug biology and behavior. Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) have also experienced success by refining training, policies and procedures and introducing new and innovative Bed Bug products.

However, the cases of bed bug infestations remain the number 1 problem for many PMPs. A survey was given to group of PMPs in 2010 that 76% responded that bed bugs were THE most difficult pest to control. The survey was repeated again in 2013, and again, 76% responded that bed bugs were STILL THE most difficult pest to control and were also being found in more non-residential areas. The survey asked only one question; “Where have you found bed bugs?”*

Hotels/motels – 75 percent (67 percent) +8 percent
College dorms – 47 percent (35 percent) +12 percent
Nursing homes – 46 percent (25 percent) +21 percent
Office buildings – 36 percent (18 percent) +18 percent
