Just stay off the trade routes and you will be okay.

Wasn't there money in the stimulus bill to fix stuff like this?

Another example of the new socialism making our lives less civilized. Bed bugs, stink bugs, mosquitoes, we have the ability to make our lives better by getting rid of these pests, but our government, which always seems to know better than us, has deemed that we just have to suck it up.

As long as they don't snore and/or hog the covers...

Does PETA fight on behalf of bed bugs and dust mites?? There must be some lobby to protect them.

I'm more concerned with cooties.

My wife and I just returned from a vacation at the Grand Canyon. Naturally, we were very selective as far as the hotels where we stayed. We questioned the Hotel representatives and inspected the rooms before committing our dollars.

Probably because I don't ever wash my sheets and blankets.

Zombie bed bugs, yes. Normal bed buds, not so much.

Heck, I figure the brown recluse spiders will take care of them little bed bugs.

Nah, I know too many old farmers who never throw anything away. Surely a few of them have a few gallons of DDT tucked away for just such a situation as this.
