  In 2012, a proactive bed bug suppression program was implemented in a low-income housing facility and evaluated over the course of one year. The mean treatment time and application cost were calculated for each unit. In 2013, both the number of initial infestations and the costs associated with bed bug treatments decreased by 26%.
