Welcome to our Toronto bed bugs video education series. IN this video we will introduce ourselves and talk a little bit about how the bed bug problem in Southern Ontario and , in particular, Toronto has become so prolific.
You need to know that having bed bugs does NOT mean that you're a bad person or that you keep a dirty home! It doesn't mean that there's something wrong with you and, despite the very real social stigma associated with having bed bugs, many hundreds of people throughout Ontario get them every single day!
Regardless of your social status or socio-economic wrung in life bed bugs can and do effect people from all walks of life! The vast majority of people who get bed bugs go through feelings of shame and embarrassment even though it is quite unwarranted! Anyone can get bed bugs and by not talking about it we inadvertently make this problem worse!
Not that many years ago the bed bug problem in Ontario was primarily located in the Toronto area. Not anymore! We're seeing bed bugs migrate outwards from primarily urban areas to the suburbs and beyond. Now, it's not uncommon to find bed bugs in offices, public transit, hospitals and restaurants. These days, anywhere there iscists a place for the public to assemble, there is a real risk of being exposed to bed bugs!
