Pest control experts said more people in the U.S. are affected by bed bugs than ever before and Ohio cities like Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati are at the top of the list for infestations.

Pest control company Orkin put out a list of where their crews performed the most bed bug treatments from December 2015 to November 2016.

Columbus is listed at number five in the nation, Cincinnati at number eight and the Cleveland area at number 13.

Terminix just released their list for the first half of 2017. It puts Cleveland at number one and Cincinnati at number two.

Bed bugs can be difficult to treat and often notice in the first place.

Experts said the first sign of an infestation can be the bugs themselves. Look for dark stains they leave behind as well as egg shells and feces.

Ohio State University experts said there isn’t a silver bullet to control them, suggesting you call a professional.

Bed bugs are not a sign that you or your home is dirty.

Check often for bed bugs.
