Can I buy insurance to cover a potential bed bug infestation in my home?

According to a 2011 survey released by the National Pest Management Association, one out of five Americans has had a bed bug infestation in the home or knows someone who has encountered bed bugs at home or in a hotel.

Some insurers offer bed bug insurance, however it's primarily for hotels, landlords, student housing operators, and businesses. If you have a standard home or renter's insurance policy, check with the insurer to find out what bed bug coverage, if any, is available.
