Creepy crawlers like Toronto the best.

The city has been named the bed bug capitol of Canada for 2021 the third year in a row its topped the ranking, according to Orkin Canada.

Orkin compiles the list based on the number of commercial and residential bed bug treatments the company carried out.

Taking second place last year was Sudbury, followed by Vancouver, St. Johns, Oshawa, Scarborough, Moncton, Saint John, Winnipeg and Edmonton.

Travel bans, stay-at-home orders, and a general shift to working remotely have resulted in fewer hitch-hiking opportunities for these critters, and yet they have found a way to stick around, Orkin said in a release. Bed bugs latch onto people, clothing, and furniture. All it can take is an airplane seat, hotel bed or even an office chair for these pesky bed bugs to invade your space.

Orkin noted the insects can travel up to 30 metres (100 feet) in search of a meal which for them is blood, mainly from humans and usually consumed between midnight and 5 a.m.

Due to their ability to double in population about every 16 days, it will not be difficult for bed bugs to regain their grip on Canadians, the company added.
