A recent study found that while bed bug infestations are a year-round phenomenon, six out of ten pest control professionals noted that peak season tends to be the summertime. Burr Pest Control has seen the same trend in our local area including in Rockford, Beloit, Freeport, Dekalb, and Janesville.

The increase of bed bugs during the summer months occurs because people are traveling more frequently and don’t always know to look out for bed bugs when they get to their destination. As a result bed bugs hitch hike their way back home with you and cause a bed bug infestation.
