Honolulu drops on Bed Bug Cities List

By Erika Engle

LAST UPDATED: 12:39 p.m. HST, Jan 16, 2014

The number of bed bug infestation treatments performed by Orkin in Honolulu decreased last year, putting the city at No. 45 on the company's national bed bug rankings list.

Honolulu's 45th-place ranking is down eight spots from last year, while Chicago has the disturbing honor of being in first place.

In a statement, Orkin noted that the Chicago City Council passed an ordinance in July requiring condominium associations to have a formal bed bug management plan in place for detection, inspection and treatment of the pests.

The Bed Bug Cities List is prepared by Orkin according to the number of treatments the company performed during a calendar year, compared to the number of treatments performed in the previous calendar year.

Self interest for rating cities with the most bed bugs. However, who know best the rate of infestation other than the victims.

Guaranteed you were bitten and just do not realize it. Having bed-bugs is the norm. Not having them would be uncommon. You'd be surprised how many microscopic animals not only survive in the bed, but also on the body itself.
