Cincinnati's Bedbug Outbreak: New Map Shows City's Itchy Neighborhoods

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- A few clicks here will take you to a Cincinnati Health Department report about the city's plague of bedbugs. The document includes a map showing neighborhoods where infestations have been reported over the past 13 months.

The map is at the end of five pages of material filed today at City Hall. You can access it by first clicking "get documents" on the city's e-gov link, then "communication " when those words appear in the windows. The map is compiled from a database of calls to the Health Department, and it shows the pests are everywhere, sparing neither high-income nor low-income parts of town. Yes, even upscale Hyde Park and Mt. Lookout have bedbugs these days.
