Orkin Canada’s results are based on the number of commercial and residential bed bug treatments performed by the country’s largest pest control provider.

Orkin says that in less than two decades, Cimex lectularius, better known as bed bugs, went from a seldom-seen irritant to a major problem that thrives in clean and dirty homes alike.

What to look for:

  • Tiny dark spots, poured skins, or live bed bugs.

Where to look:

  • Mattress tags and seams, under seat cushions, behind headboards, folds of drawers, kinked wallpaper or carpets.

Prevention tips:

  • Dry potentially infested bed linen or clothing on the highest possible heat setting.
  • Check all used furniture before bringing it to your home.
  • Before returning home after the trip, check your bags, clothes, and other items for bed bugs.
