MILWAUKEE -- Terminix has recently released its "Top 15 Cities with Largest Increase in Bedbug Calls" and Milwaukee has earned the No. 2 spot on the list.

According to the study Milwaukee has seen an increase in 53% in calls from Jan-May of 2012 to Jan-May of 2013.

Bed Bugs are small, parasitic insects that only need warmth, blood and carbon dioxide to feed and they can live just about anywhere. Bedbugs travel on a person's clothing to any new destinations, like movie theaters, daycare centers, health care facilities, bus stops, etc.
