Bed Bugs on the Rise
Bed bugs have been causing a lot of concern in the past few years for residents all around Toronto as well as Montreal. Since July 2011 there has been nearly 23,000 residential bed bug infestations reported in Montreal alone, with no end in sight to the bedbug problem. According to François Saillant, spokesperson for housing group FRAPRU, the bed bug problem in Montreal has entered almost every Montreal neighbourhood reaching what he considers epidemic proportions. Saillant claims that the city is doing a great job to inform the public of the issue, however, they are not putting enough pressure on landlords to make sure that bed bug cases are properly dealt with. If you are travelling to Montreal from Toronto, make sure to stay weary and properly wash your belongings before getting back home.
