Statebeds, bedlamps and other electronic devices were the most common bed bugs found at the University of Colorado in Boulder, according to an analysis of a large sample of beds and bathrooms in the city’s downtown.
A total of 1,039 people in the survey reported having bed bugs, with more than half reporting that they had been in a home for a period of one week or more.
More than half of those with bed bugs said they had either been bitten or been sickened by bed bugs.
Bed bugs can carry disease, including pneumonia and meningitis, and have been found in more than 150 states and in Canada, the CDC said.
Colorado, Oregon, Utah and Wyoming are among the 10 states that had the highest rates of bedbugs found, according the CDC.
The rate in Colorado was 2.9 percent.
Colorado has the nation’s second-highest number of bedbug-related deaths, according in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which also says the state’s bedbug problem has been linked to high rates of air pollution, air quality, and air quality controls.
Bedbugs are also responsible for about 2,000 illnesses each year in Colorado, according health officials.
