Bed Bugs Are Crawling This Fall Through These 2 Illinois Cities
These Illinois cities are full of BED BUGS and the folks at Orkin can prove it...Hell, that's their business!
Eww. Gross. Disgusting.
What is a BED BUG, besides gross...A Bed Bug is:
Typically 3/16 inch long, red to dark brown in color and are mostly nocturnal insects that come out of hiding to take blood meals from sleeping humans. These pests are hematophagous, which means blood is their only food source. ORKIN
Now let's talk location, location, location...When it comes to these disgusting little things, there's one place CLOSE TO US that they apparently love. Scary, right? CHICAGO.
Chicago is the #1 city in America for bed bugs...#1. :(
But wait, there's more...Coming in at #11....Champaign, IL! So the Land of Lincoln is apparently ALSO the land of BED BUGS!
Here's the actual list, right is front of you...hopefully not crawling by you:

“Bed bugs are extremely resilient, making them difficult to control. As people begin to ramp up their travel plans this year, it’s important they know how to protect themselves through pest identification and proper control, Contrary to popular belief, bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, but are excellent at hiding. Involving a trained professional at the sight of a bed bug introduction is recommended.” - Ben Hottel, Orkin
I've never dealt with these gross creatures, and I hope I never do!
Way to go Illinois, two different bed bug hot spots. Yuck.
