    The above headline is misleading at best because it is only based on one provider's customers. It would be like Southwest Airlines saying that Midway is the busiest airport in Chicago because they do more business at Midway than O'Hare. While the underlying fact is true for Southwest, the conclusion being drawn is false.

    Chicago is a very developing country and having such rate of bed bugs in the city is bit of a concerning condition. For pest Control Company this is a great chance to increase their spray selling. Thanks.
