Travellers beware as Toronto ranks first for the fourth-straight year on Orkin Canada's 2022 list of the nation's bed-buggiest cities

MISSISSAUGA, ON , March 21, 2023 /CNW/ - Orkin Canada has released its annual list of the "bed-buggiest" cities in Canada for 2022.

In the top spot is Toronto, followed by Vancouver (up from third in 2021), and Sudbury (down from second), rounding out the top three. One significant newcomer to the list was London, Ontario, which went unranked in 2021, and rose to eighth in 2022.

The top 10 bed buggiest cities in Canada in 2022 are:

  1. Toronto
  2. Vancouver
  3. Sudbury
  4. Oshawa
  5. Ottawa
  6. Scarborough
  7. Sault Ste. Marie
  8. London
  9. St. John's
  10. Hamilton

Bed bugs are known to live where there is a steady supply of food, and move from room to room through clothing, personal belongings, vacuum cleaners and infested furniture, making homes, hotels and businesses ideal spots.

As Canadians begin to plan their 2023 adventures, Orkin Canada wants to remind travellers how to recognize signs and traces of bed bugs, so that you can avoid bringing any unwanted hitchhikers back home.

The findings by Orkin Canada are based on the number of commercial and residential bed bug treatments carried out by the company in 2022 (January 1 – December 31).
