    Bed bugs are now snapping at the heels of deer in the insurance claims stakes:

    Bedbug bites and infestation were the second highest animal-related cause of liability loss (21%), according to a new report on liabilities by Munich, Germany-based insurance firm Allianz AZSEY, -0.08% , following deer incidents (such as vehicle collisions) at 58%. New York alone saw a 44% jump in bedbug incidents from 2014 to 2015, a peek into a growing trend the insurance industry has seen the past several years.

    The article seems to be based on hotel insurance claims, which makes sense. Homeowners are almost never covered for bed bugs.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
