MCHD is aware that bed bug incidents are observed on a seasonal cycle. This can be for many reasons including increased travel and restrictions on pesticide use. A bed bug infestation can spread from family to family due to close living quarters found in apartments, hotels, condominiums, etc.
Fortunately, bed bugs are not known to transmit communicable disease, and therefore, are not considered a public health threat. We understand that they can be a nuisance, however, we recommend professional pest control assessment and treatment to eradicate any infestation.
