Guess who’s baaaaaack? While the pandemic stopped most travel for 2020, and there was a “short” reprieve in bed bug cases, it did not stop the dreaded bed bug. They were still breeding faster than Samantha Jones on a Friday night! (Sex and The City reference😂). As travel ramped up in 2021, the infamous hitchhiker began to rear its ugly head, and with a shortage of staff in businesses such as hotels it has been difficult to monitor for the signs of bed bugs, thus allowing their numbers to grow exponentially.
