This infographic comes to us from NJ.com and features some unfortunate facts about bedbugs. A few months ago, we received a submission of a bedbugs infographic, but I must say that this one is far better, in that it actually looks like an infographic instead of something out of an old magazine. It’s unfortunate that a New Jersey focused site would have to put an infographic like this together, but it seems like the bedbug population has skyrocketed and is finding success in a plan to take over the world.

Upon submitting the infographic, NJ.com had the following to say:

The bedbug population is exploding across the country, and reports of outbreaks are instilling infestation paranoia. From cinemas to schools to apartment buildings, bedbugs are showing up all over the U.S., and particularly in hot spots like New York, New Jersey, Ohio, and Washington, D.C.

You may already know that bedbugs are incredibly difficult to get rid of, but how much do you really know about these pesky insects?

We dug into this nocturnal nuisance and are sharing what we learned in the infographic above.

One question I have: since when is Ohio a hot spot? I’m from Ohio, and there’s nothing “hot spot” about it… but now this infographic makes me afraid to go home for the holidays.

Overall, the infographic does a good job of making my skin crawl, as the title suggests it will. It has a really great flow to it, with a ruler at the top to show scale and a growing bedbug crawling down the page to make things even more creepy. All said and done, this is a disgusting infographic, which means it’s very good considering the topic.
