Bed bugs are on the rise all over the US. They infest homes, businesses and even public transportation. Some cities experience such widespread infestations that even the buses and taxis end up as homes to bed bugs.
City management must be extra vigilant when it comes to bed bugs on public transportation systems. Early detection is the best way to avoid an infestation on your entire transit system. These pests can easily gain access to buses, taxis or shuttles by hiding in the clothing of passengers.
Bed bugs are small, think less than the size of an apple seed, making it easy for them to avoid visual detection. They can easily hide in small cracks and crevices, as well as in between seat cushions. Then, while commuters catch a ride to work or a city event they can unknowingly become a buffet for these vermin.
Considering how easily bed bugs can find a home on busy transit systems, regular screenings are an important step in fighting off infestations and a loss of faith in your city’s infrastructure. It only takes one bug to create an infestation.
