How common are bed bugs in the UK?

Bed bugs can be seen all around the world, from the most isolated places, to the most crowded ones. This insect has been known to live in the UK since after the WWII, where it started spreading more and more. In those times, it was pretty normal to find them, as heating systems bring warmth and give the best conditions for these disgusting animals to thrive.

This didn’t stay in the past. Nowadays, it’s pretty easy to find them since their population has increased over the last 10 years, which is pretty alarming. The large majority of pest services has had to deal with these scurry insects along the past few years.

There are different places where they can be seen, however, it varies depending on the location. For example, when it comes to finding them, you’ll most certainly see them in flats (95%), family homes (93%) and also in hotels (75%). Even though hotels can host for many travellers and people, they seem to be the lowest as they are constantly being treated and cleaned.

In houses and flats, there is a high chance for these bugs to appear since generally people come and go, and for them humans are food, so it is easier to get to them during their sleep as these insects crawl out of their crevices and feed off them. Generally, this happens also because of the warmth that allows them to thrive. Moreover, with them being night creatures, this can make it more difficult to identify that they have infested the house and this helps them increase their population.

You can find them where crowds or people usually gather, this can be either a hospital, offices, schools, dormitories, and hospitals. You could find them everywhere waiting for a host to come so be attentive. In the summer is when you can see many infestations due to the moving from city to city of their hosts, transporting, going places gives them a chance to reproduce and feed, since they have a wide variety of hosts.

The levels of bed bugs are high across the country since they have rapidly evolved, leaving those pesticides behind and be immune to most of them, so they are harder to eradicate or remove, this is why humans are creating more poisonous and efficient ways to get rid of them.
