Bed bugs have become a significant problem in Canada and around the world. They are easily spread and difficult to treat, resulting in rapid growth in the number of bed bug outbreaks worldwide. Since bed bugs can be transported via clothing and luggage, they are not exclusive to hotels and motels. These transient pests can be carried into homes, apartment buildings and businesses of every kind.
The key to beating any bed bug infestation is to raise awareness of what to look for and to ensure bed bugs are dealt with quickly once discovered. Rentokil has a dedicated team of experts equipped to provide a quick and efficient response to your bed bug issues.

Increased global travel is one of the biggest factors contributing to the increase in bed bug infestations in Canada, with the blood-sucking pests making a revival over the last decade. Lack of awareness and the “it will never happen to me” attitude have greatly contributed to the spread of bed bugs.
Bed bug infestations can often be traced back to hotels and motels, which host travellers from all over the world. Bed bugs get into clothing or suitcases and are then transported to homes and businesses. If there are any signs of bed bugs when staying at a hotel, particularly if you notice bites or see blood spots on sheets, take great care in bringing your personal belongings home.
Bed bugs usually enter a property by being carried on poorly inspected clothing or furniture. Bed bugs can survive for many months without a blood meal so simply isolating an infested piece of furniture will not get rid of bed bugs.
Homeowners often unintentionally bring bed bugs into their homes by picking up infested, discarded furniture on the curb and bringing it inside.
