Congratulations, Toronto. we are once again the top bed bug city in Canada.
Even with sightings down 20 per cent this year, Orkin Canada says that Toronto is still at the top of the list for the second year running. With bed bugs found in classrooms and on the TTC, this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise

While Toronto may be at the top, five other Ontario cities also made the top 10, with Sudbury ranking second, Oshawa in third, Scarborough in seventh, Whitby in eighth, and Ottawa in tenth.
Luckily bed bug sightings have actually gone down, likely due to the public health measures in place to fight COVID-19.
“Travel bands, stay-at-home orders, and a general shift to working remotely have resulted in less opportunities for these hitchhikers to move around, for the first time since Orkin Canada released its annual survey five years ago,” a press release reveals.
