Bedbug Facts & Information

The common Bedbug (Cimex lectularius) is species that most frequently feeds on the blood of humans. Bed bug’s interactions with man dates back to early civilization and were probably introduced to the US by very early immigration. Cimex lectularius was believed to have been eradicated from America in the 1950’s due to several factors including the use of insecticides such as DDT and malathion.

The Rise of Bedbugs Within the NYC & NJ Metro Area

Since 1998 bed bug populations have been rapidly expanding. Within the last few years, bed bug infestations have increased significantly in all sectors and aspects of life so much so that New York City is currently experiencing a bed bug epidemic. New York’s densely populated buildings, recycling of infested items and constant people movement; make it a perfect habitat for bed bugs to thrive in. In response, The New York City Bed Bug Advisory Board was created to map out a comprehensive strategy and best practices to enable New Yorkers to take back the night.
