Mbanza Congo Detroit Councilwoman Brenda Jones was itching to address the situation during a recent meeting. She explained she had been told by a young woman that these bugs have become quite a nuisance recently and was wondering what steps were being taken to address and solve the issue.

There are plenty of options to get rid of bed bugs, but not all of them are very effective in preventing the bed bugs from returning. Modern bed bug populations are often very resistant to insecticides used for their demise. However, there are non-toxic options, such as thermal remediation, that has been proven to populations of the bugs for good.
“If customers find a problem with the bus, just call the station… and we’ll take care of it,” said Dirks.
A new approach or method of extermination may be in order, since this is not the first report to roll in about the pests on public buses. In 2012, nearly 50 drivers reported they had been bitten by bed bugs.
One out of five Americans has had a bed bug infestation in their home or knows someone who has encountered bed bugs at home or in a hotel, yet now the American may need to add public transit to the list of common places to encounter these critters.
