    A Kenyan PCO talks about the bed bug situation in his country:

    “Eighty per cent of our work involves bedbug eradication. In Nairobi alone, we fumigate more than 10 houses infested by bedbugs, every” says Mr Naibei. He attributes the increase in infestation to the country’s high reliance on a public transport system. “Many people unwittingly pick up bedbugs from matatus – and even airplanes. We fumigate matatus frequently. Just last week, we were at an airport getting rid of bedbugs from more than a dozen planes belonging to a local airline!” he adds. Also contributing to the spread of bedbugs is the second-hand clothing (mitumba) market, he says. “Some of these imported clothes come with bedbugs, so we visit godowns in Gikomba and Muthurwa markets every weekend to fumigate the clothes before they hit the stalls,” Mr Naibei reveals.

    The relative severity of the problem there can be seen from the fact the country is in the top 5 in google trends for "bed bugs".
