Not long ago, pest-control giant Terminix released has released reports which showed that New York for the second year in a row is a city that most reported of bed bugs cases. But the actual report was not surprising because New York is a densely populated metropolis with well-publicized infestations everywhere from apartment buildings to businesses such as department stores, magazine offices, and even Lincoln Center.

Terminix reported an increase in bed bug infestations in most states during the past year (2010), partly because clients are more aware and on the lookout for the small insect.

1. New York
2. Cincinnati
3. Detroit

5. Philadelphia
6. Denver
7. Washington, D.C.
8. Los Angeles

This is the second year Terminix has put out a list. Baltimore, Dallas and San Francisco appear on it for the first time this year, replacing Indianapolis, Cleveland and Minneapolis.

Bed bugs have always been around, especially since strong chemicals such as DDT were banned But today people are more aware and communicating about the issue.
