Bed bug insurance is now being offered to the at-risk market.
Aon Risk Solutions has aligned with Global Excess Partners and Terminix to provide a bed bug insurance solution for hotels, landlords, student housing, corporate business and leisure travellers.
The suite of products offers an integrated pest management approach. It combines insurance coverage with Terminix’s specialist bed bug elimination resources, delivering cost savings and greater budgetary certainty, while at the same time successfully treating and protecting premises.
The following benefits would be offered, subject to policy limits, terms and conditions:
• Insurance to cover the cost of bed bug elimination.
• Insurance to recover lost revenue resulting from taking rooms out of service during bed bug elimination.
• Dramatically reduced need to destroy room contents. In many situations, contents can be successfully treated rather than destroyed and replaced.
• A new, non-toxic elimination treatment that can return a room to service in five or fewer days.
• Discounted rates for mattress encasements and bed bug kits for greater peace of mind.
• Tips to prevent further outbreaks.
A call to determine whether this coverage was available in Canada had not been returned as of press time.

    Bed bug insurance in Canada would be long overdue, as individuals are currently not covered with home or apartment insurance to replace their belongings or the value of their most vulnerable possessions and collections no matter who’s at fault for bringing in the bed bugs. Everyone no matter how much money invested in their wardrobe or textiles, etc. just gets the standard speech “put everything in bags wash hot water cycle, long hot one hour dryer cycle”. No one seems to care this will totally destroy most fine clothing and fabrics and it’s assumed the individual won’t mind everything they own could now be garbage.
