2 Tennessee Cities Named Among The ‘Worst Cities For Bed Bugs’ In The U.S. | 1075 The River – 1075 The River

If you're squeamish about bugs or tiny crawling critters, you may want to look away. A new report lists a couple of cities in Tennessee as being some of the worst places in America for bed bugs.

Pest control company Orkin released its annual list of the U.S. cities with the most reported cases of bed bugs, using data gathered from December 1, 2022 to November 30, 2023, of cities with the most bed bug treatments. Two cities city in the Volunteer State are among the worst in the country for bed bugs:

Bed bugs are typically around 3/16 inch long and red to dark brown in color and are mostly nocturnal, coming out at night to "take blood meals from sleeping humans," the site states. A bed bug fiasco in Paris last year had people more concerned than ever about the pests. Orkin entomologist Ben Hottel notes that while people may be aware of the bugs while traveling, it's important that they also take precautions at home to ensure their space stays bed bug-free.

"Second-hand items such as clothing and furniture are also common bed bug hiding places, allowing pests an opportunity to hitch a ride home with new consumers," said Hottel. "Examining any new items before they enter your home will help you catch a bed bug infestation sooner, rather than later."

So what else should you do to minimize the risk of infestation? Orkin suggests regularly checking your home for signs of bed bugs, inspecting mattress seams, headboards, baseboards and even electrical outlets and picture frames. Experts also recommend decluttering your home to make spotting the insects even easier.

These are the Top 20 "worst cities for bed bugs," according to the report:

Blind woman thankful for the help after bed bugs invade home

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) A blind woman is grateful to the Federation of the Blind for helping her after she was threatened with eviction.

Last month when bed bugs had infested Monica Joness apartment. The management at her government-subsidized apartment sprayed, but it did little good. She was then told, to either get rid of the bugs and furniture or she could lose her apartment. Thats when an advocacy group for the blind stepped in.

The problem was bed bugs. Weve had this issue before. Theyve come in here, boomed and sprayed, but theyve never threatened me like that before. This is not something that I brought here. Its something thats been here, said Jones.

When I first heard about this my first thought went to Under normal circumstances, eviction is a horrible thing. But when you are dealing with blind people and finding temporary shelter, its more difficult, said Yvonne Neubert, the president of Tennessees senior division of the National Federation of the Blind.

Neubert says she reached out to the blind community and others to assist Jones, it paid off.

Fortunately, I have a great network of friends and associates and I put a post on Facebook. And people began donating to help with this situation, said Neubert.

Last week, the company Junk Galaxy came in and removed Monicas bug-infested furniture and the threat of eviction was called off.

Im going to give a plug to Junk Galaxy. When they heard about this situation, they gave a friends discount,' said Neubert.

Well, Id like to have another chair to go in the corner, Id like to have a couch. And, Id like to have a bed, said Jones.

Everybody has a community, the blind people, we have our own community. But we are also an active engaging part of the community as a whole. I would like that message to really be heard, said Neubert.

Jones is grateful to those who have assisted her. It touched my heart. I wasnt expecting all of that when this first started.

As Jones is grateful, Neubert says she is thankful to the Golden Age Retirement Village for working with her, as they try to assist Jones.
