In response to concerns being raised from several pest control companies across the country about the slow start to the 2013 bed bug season, Bedbug Central conducted a survey asking PCO’s about specifics on the trends they are seeing in their area.
It is important to note that 75% of those polled notice a seasonal trend in bed bug work in their area (typically June through October seems to be the busiest months for most companies). Of the 12 companies who report seasonal fluctuations in bed bugs work, 50% reported a slower than usual start in 2013.
“While we’ve known for years that bed bug calls spike during the summer months in most areas of the U.S. this survey demonstrates that bed bug service trends can differ by region in a given year” said Jeffrey White, technical director of BedBug Central. “While most companies in the Northeast are reporting a slower than average start to the bed bug season, there are other companies in other parts of the country that are familiar with the slow start to the season.”
