Rogers Park Bed Bugs

I posted a story on the increase of bed bugs in Rogers Park last week. The story was quickly picked up by Curbed Chicago due to it's relevance in our city.

Upon two of my Rogers Park friends bringing up personal bed bug stories in their buildings today,  I decided to elaborate on how wide-spread these blood suckers have become in our community.

A quick search of The Bed Bug Registery, produced reports of at least 36 incidents and counting, within Rogers Park's borders.
