Two Indiana cities make ‘bed bug’ list

Two cities in Indiana are on a list that most people consider gross and undesirable. Indianapolis is 9th worst in the country for bed bugs, said a study by Orkin.

Ft. Wayne also made the list. Bed bugs, which are typically 4-5 mm in length and red to dark brown in color, can travel from place to place with ease, including luggage, purses and other belongings. And they are expensive to get rid of.

Hotels spend an average of $6,383 per bed bug incident, said the “Bugs Without Borders Survey” by the National Pest Management Association.
