BED BUGS: They’ve Gone Buggy All Over You!

Bedbug Registry: 

Bed bugs love to travel - they too pride themselves on being seasoned travelers.  They do not discriminate on their preferences for residing.  They are present in all states and manage to both exist and thrive worldwide.  Their numbers are alarmingly increasing rather than diminishing.   

Do you wish to become infested and bring one home as a pet?  Bed bugs easily can get into your luggage and clothing, and presto, you not only shared a room with them on vacation, but they liked you so well they accompanied you HOME! 

The pesky critters tend to overstay their welcome (as if they ever had one) and are not easily eradicated, so why knowingly invite them in the first place?  The Bed Bug Registry is not an honor most lodging properties actively covet.  Multiple incidents reports?  You may wish to look elsewhere for your choice of lodging. 

Adverse publicity of an infestation of bed bugs rivals incidents of Legionnaire’s disease as a guaranteed business reservation killer.  You do not necessarily have to get down and dirty at the Twitching Eye Motel or Scratchey’s Inn to encounter these pesky devils.  Even the best of the world’s snooty high-end hotels and resorts are not immune from these uninvited guests.  You’re not even safe in a supposed sterile hospital. 






Egad: The pesky little critters are being discovered literally everywhere, even the Empire State Building, the Ronald Reagan Building in D.C. and the prestigious Lincoln Center in NYC!   Nothing like opera or ballet with free bedbugs thrown in as a take-home momento that will teach you not to purchase the cheap seats!!








Man successfully eradicated the pesky buggers several decades ago.  The do-gooders and environmentalists, however, succeeded in banning the use of the bedbugs arch enemy, pesticides including DDT.  (Yes, we know.  DDT is very bad and we don't hope for a revival, but a replacement maybe?)   Presto, THEY’RE BACK!  The bedbugs are microscopic Draculas that thrive on your blood.  They can survive for an entire year without food, but when they spot you - it's feast time!  Have a nice night’s rest and don’t let the bedbugs bite.
