NJ and NYC bed bugs seem to affect people of all ages and income levels, which is the case all over the country. However, some experts predict that unless the Federal government comes to the rescue of its citizens that the low income people will suffer more from bed bugs.
The critters love the blood of the rich and poor and even the blood of rude people but wealthy and middle income people have the money to hire NJ and NYC bed bugs pest control experts. The low income families living in single unit houses often cannot afford the expense of bed bug eradication and have to adjust to having hundreds of annoying new roommates and hope they go away; perhaps by attaching themselves to a visiting wealthy person (perhaps not).
