Tampa Ranks In Top 20 U.S. Cities Infested With Bedbugs

A trip to Tampa could leave you scratching your head... and possibly tons of other body parts.

The city comes in at 18th on Terminix's top 20 U.S. cities with the most bed bugs.

The pest-control company says bed bug infestations have significantly increased since the late 1990s and factors could include increased international travel and insecticide resistance. 

Without professional interference, bed bugs can hide undetected for months. 

Signs of an infestation include reddish-brown blood spots on sheets or mattresses, a musty odor or sightings of the pests themselves, which are the size, shape and color of an apple seed. 

The top three cities for bed bugs are Cleveland, Cincinnati and Detroit.
