Dogs and deer might wreak the greatest havoc for insurers, but according to Allianz Global & Specialty, bedbugs are a growing liability as well.
According to Allianz’s analysis of 470,000 claims filed over a five year period, bedbug incidents of bed bug bites and infestations accounted for 8% of animal claims, leading to losses of $2.84 million. The stat is mostly worrying for the insurer because it is a growing liability. The insurers analysis reveals a gradual increase in the number of related claims over the past five years.
Findings of a 2018 survey by the National Pest Management Association supports this rising bed bug trend as well. In the NPMA’s Bugs without Borders survey, almost all (97%) of pest professional have treated bed bugs in the past year with the majority of them saying that overall bed bug service work and the prevalence of these pests are increasing.
Hypothesized reasons for the increase include global awareness of damaging effects of pesticides on human health and the environment, increased world-wide exposure through travel, and urbanization which brings infested household in close contact with others.
Bed bug control should include a comprehensive plan of protection, quick action if infested, and then ongoing maintenance. Heat treatments should be a vital part of your bed bug plan.

Don’t take our word for it
A couple weeks ago our son brought home some bed bugs from one of his friends house and knowing how quickly they can spread and infest, I immediately started to search for an exterminator to come in and exterminate them. I ran into TRS on Google and read their reviews which were very good. I called them and spoke to Kelly and she was very helpful and informative. They sent one of there exterminators to my house within one day to check our house and his name was Mark - Mark did a very thorough job looking over the house and discovered traces of bed bugs and went over what needed to be done to extinguish them. After he was finished, he called his office and they were very good about making sure they could bring their crew in as quick as possible to take care of them. They were able to come in and do the work within just a few days. The owner even called me direct to speak to me and go over the process with me on the phone. They have now come, treated my house and so far see no more traces of bed bugs. I would like to recommend TRS to anyone have pest problems because they showed me that they cared about my problem and were willing to do what ever they could to make sure my needs were take care of. Their customer service was top of the line. For the actual work, Mark and Ryan came in and took care of everything. - Thanks so much TRS.
