Do you start feeling itchy every time an advertisement for a bedbug removal service comes on television?

According to this article in PCT Magazine, The Pest Control Industry saw a 3.4% growth in 2011 over the previous year. It would appear the reason for the growth overall could be attributed to bed bug treatments. Would you agree? Where do you see growth coming from this year? What about add-on services like wildlife control or bird control?
