Bed Bugs in Tennessee

Tennessee infestations of bedbugs

The only city with NO BedBugs, is Nashville

We talk a lot about where to FIND Bedbugs and often showcase the TOP 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities, but I know where there will be NO BedBugs, at least this week…. in Nashville Tennessee.

Hello my tasty-human friends. I’m MrBedBug, Chief SpokesBug for FLfresh.com and EcoBugFREE, the BedBug Eliminator. I am a TV star on MrBedBug-TV on YouTube and Editor of the BedBug News Reports.com

The hotels in Nashville Tennessee will be the cleanest places in the world, this week. The PestWorld / 2015 convention comes to town. With all the creepy-crawly experts, entomologist, and “bug-sprayers” in the city for a “How-To” get together you KNOW the place will be SUPER clean. LOL

I, the famous Mr BedBug sent a tweet to all my “peeps”. Get on the next bus, taxi, rental car or pedestrian out-of-town. I’m pretty sure Mr Cock-roach, Captain Ant, Mrs Millipede and the leader of the spooky-spider brigade did the same thing. HaHaha

PestWorld is the “big show” convention for everything “buggie”. All the manufacturers, chemical companies, service bureaus and industry reps all gather to learn and share the latest news and “best practices” for managing pest.

Don’t worry about ME. I go undercover as a human, to do opposition research. General George S Patton famously said: “Rommel, you bastard ! I read your book.” I like to think that is a great strategy, since I’m the resistance leader in the BedBug Wars.

If you are a retail consumer worried about BedBugs, the PestWorld event is where the big franchise service companies train and conspire to sell […]

5 things you need to know about hotel rooms article, includes Bedbugs [again] but not for the “right” reason.

USAtoday is out with [another] headline grabbing story. They hope it will grab readers [it must have worked, because here I am talking about it], but the facts are a little light. “McPaper” has always been accused of being light on substance in the “news” department, but this article seems designed to just be a PR/support piece for union-housekeepers in the major cities…. with a little “hate” for BedBugs thrown into the mix. I guess I’m overly sensitive, but these “5 myths about hotel housekeeping” do NOT really seem to be…. Umm… myths…. And the “facts about Bedbugs” are missing.

I’m not disputing the thesis that hotel housekeeping isn’t a tough and tedious job. Just like the old joke about how people drive rental cars, everyone uses hotel rooms like that too. I get it, but isn’t that the “job description”. Come on! We all know “sanitation engineers”, chemical plant workers and other “nasty jobs” exist. In fact, “TV regular guy”, Mike Rowe has found TV fame with a “Dirty Jobs” show on the Discovery Channel that does nothing but celebrate these “your life could be worse” jobs of all types. Watch episodes HERE

So back we return to the USA today article that you can read HERE. I spend a LOT of time in hotel rooms, both literally and figuaratively [since I am Mr BedBug after all] I do like the idea of a “tip envelope” for housekeeping, and […]

Top 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities in the USA

There is a scene in the Steve Martin comedy movie [called “The Jerk”] inwhich the character [Navin R. Johnson] is overly-excited by the arrival of the new phonebook. He thinks he is “somebody”, because his name is in print. The old saying, “any publicity is good publicity” does NOT always apply….. like when the new annual “Top 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities in the USA” list is published.

Contrary to what “Navin” believes [“This is the kind of spontaneous publicity that “makes people”] most Mayors, Chambers of Commerce and City Health Departments would rather NOT be recognized for the inglorious achievement of being on the list, but there they are. Both Orkin and Terminex play this game with PR/news releases as a way to hype the franchise pest control services they sell. The list are not really very scientific, but actually based of the number of service calls received in each city. This introduces reporting variables that have nothing to do with the level of BedBug infestations, but lets allow them to have their “fun” at the expensive of Municipal reputation all across the USA.

Here is the Top 50 Most Bed Bug Infested Cities List [per the newest Orkin press release.]

1. Chicago Il (moving up +1 spot to be the New #1, like Casey Kasum used to say)
2. Detroit MI (up +1)
3. Los Angeles Calif (up +2)
4. Denver Colo (holding steady at #4)
5. Cincinnati Ohio (down the list -4 places, but everyone else in Ohio is “catching-up” fast. )
6. Columbus, Ohio (still ranked #6, but workin’ hard to break that Top 5 goal.) […]
