In recent months, Paris has had a very unsavory problem. Videos circulating on social media have shown bed bugs crawling across seats on trains and buses. They have been spotted in restaurants, hotels and even at Charles-de-Gaulle Airport. However, such outbreaks are not just a problem for the French.
