National action urged over Swiss bedbug infestation | WRS | Articles


A Geneva politician is calling for federal action over bedbugs.

Guillaume Barrazzone says there needs to be national action as the country is in the grip of an infestation.

He says the critters ignore cantonal and communal boundaries. In Geneva there were nearly 5,000 reports of infestations in 2014, in Zurich there were 100 reports last year– when the average was just 20 a year up to 2005. In Vaud 250 army recruits had to leave a barracks because of the bugs.
