Most commonly found bed bug species in Hong Kong that readily bite humans are Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus. Although bed bug infestations are at higher risk in public accommodations where people lounge, sleep or sit such as hotels and cinema, it not unusual to find them at your homes. This is because bed bugs can be brought home through your luggage, clothes, bags etc. and by carrying just 1 single surviving female bed bug home, it can spell disaster.
Luckily for you, we have loads of tips to help you identify signs of an infestation and how you can deter from bringing home any bed bugs from your travels. It is a traveller’s biggest fear: waking up in a hotel bed (or even your own bed!) with the telltale bites and droplets of blood on the sheets.
Bedbugs are becoming a significant problem in this country and around the world. They are easily spread and difficult to treat resulting in a rapid growth in the number of bedbug outbreaks. The key to beating this problem is to raise awareness of what to look for and to ensure bedbugs are dealt with quickly once discovered.

Bed Bugs Are Back - Rentokil
Hong Kong is on the verge of a major bed bug epidemic, a pest control professional technician claims that ”There are only two types of households in Hong Kong - those who have bed bugs and those who will have bed bugs.”
During the last few years, the world has experienced an explosion of bed bug infestation. Hong Kong is not immune and has seen a continuous increase in bed bug cases.
One assumption about the spread of bed bugs in Hong Kong is that they are “imported” from the domestic helpers, where usually travel to Hong Kong from home town with luggage that spread the pests rapidly across the city. They have also stayed in hostels and dormitories, which are often infested. In addition, bed bugs are a common problem for people living in public housing estates, because of the population density.
Whether they’re in your home or hotel, bed bugs are an unwanted (and terrifying) guest. All ‘beds’ are at risk, especially those accomodation places with a large number of international travellers, or if you’re a frequent traveller yourself.
