Bedbugs are a significant problem in India and around the world especially in heavily populated cities.
They’re hitchhikers, which means they’re able to spread easily to non-infested properties by
latching onto unwitting hosts. With thousands of hostels, hotels and shared accommodation located in
cities around the country, they are able to spread extremely quickly and can quickly overrun a home.
They are easily spread and difficult to treat resulting in rapid growth in the number of bed bug outbreaks. The key to beating this problem is to raise awareness of what to look for and to ensure bed bugs are dealt with quickly once discovered.
Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. While bedbugs can transmit disease, in India it is very rare. Instead, the primary concern is the irritation and distress caused by bed bug bites.
