Bed Bugs and The City, Top 10 Cities for Bed Bugs in 2024. HowToPest.com

Guess who’s back, not taking any breaks? Even though our globetrotting plans were put on pause in 2020 due to the pandemic, and there was a tiny dip in bed bug incidents, these determined little critters kept partying on. Shockingly, they were multiplying faster than a game of Tetris on expert mode, pandemic or not! They were even outpacing Samantha Jones from “Sex and The City” on a Friday night – a fun pop culture nod to highlight just how fast these little pests have been making themselves at home!

As travel has continually ramped up through 2021, 2022, 2023 and 2024 the infamous “hitchhiker” began to rear its ugly head, and with a shortage of staff in businesses such as hotels it has been difficult to monitor for the signs of bed bugs, thus allowing their numbers to grow exponentially. Just recently, with all the major events in Las Vegas, NV, such as Formula 1 and The Superbowl, several Las Vegas hotels are reporting bed bug sightings and infestations!
