“The work involved was intensive. The clients needed extra care. It was complicated. There were a lot of wrenches thrown into the works. But the family was deserving and grateful; it was satisfying and worthwhile. If there was anyone who deserved this, it was them.”
-Sonny Bukky, The Bed Bug Pros
The State of Ohio is consistently among the states with the most bed bug problems. In 2018, Cleveland and Cincinnati were the top two worst cities for bed bugs, based on service requests to pest control company Terminix. A nationwide 2015 study by PestWorld.org found that almost 100 percent of pest control companies had treated bed bugs within the past year; which was up from 10 and 15 years prior. Apartments/condos, single family homes, and hotels/motels were the three most common places for bed bugs to be found. However, 58 percent of pest companies also treated bedbugs in nursing homes in 2015; 45 percent treated them in office buildings; and 43 percent treated them in schools and day care centers. Remediators in the study agreed that among the pests they treat, bed bugs are generally the most challenging.
