Map of the Week: Bedbug reports
This week's map looks at bedbug problems reported to Toronto's public health department as a rate per 1,000 households by postal code.
The map shows a clear pattern, with bedbugs concentrated in a cluster of neighbourhoods in the east downtown, and then stretching into the east end as far as southwestern Scarborough. Parkdale also has high rates.
Shoreline Etobicoke and the Jane/Finch-Black Creek areas are also afflicted, at a lower level. The Annex, the Junction/High Park and Cedarvale also pop out on the map as one-offs.
The data was released by the City of Toronto in response to an access-to-information request.
