Letter to the editor: Battling bedbugs

To the editor:

Where do bedbugs come from? People with bedbugs carry them into your house. Who has bedbugs? Anybody, with a lapse of luck, can have bedbugs. Who still has bedbugs? People too poor to pay for the heat treatments. If you see a bedbug running across the floor there are lots of ways to kill it. If the bedbug gets to his hiding place, the heat treatment is the only effective tool. This is a job for government! Our taxes should pay for bedbug irradiation. The best way to keep bedbugs out of your house is to get them out of everybody’s house.
