Homeowners’ Biggest Pests of 2018

December 14, 2018

The biggest pest of 2018? Bedbugs.


The second annual Terminix Entomologists’ Almanac took a look at the biggest pest trends from the past year based on social media chatter and internet queries. Bedbugs clinched the title for the second year in a row.


Americans searched for information about bedbugs more than 6.7 million times this year—more so than any other pest. Terminix, a national pest control company, says it has seen a steady increase in bedbug infestations since the 1990s.


Terminix revealed the following as 2018’s biggest pests of the year:


1. Bedbug


2. Opossum


3. Scorpion


4. Spider


5. Hornet


6. Mosquito


7. Silverfish


8. Squirrel


9. Centipede


10. Cockroach


Terminix also released findings of the pest-laden places in 2018, based on search data per capita.
The states with the most pest problems and searches in 2018 are:


1. District of Columbia


2. North Carolina


3. Massachusetts
