Bed Bugs

O.K. I know I have a strange sense of humor and probably have been known to laugh at inappropriate things at times, but I have got to tell you that I got such a chuckle out of this that I just had to pass it along.  We all know that we are in the midst of a crisis in this country with bed bug infestation.  From what I hear, there are now bed bug sniffing dogs that have proven to be the most effective means of getting rid of the little critters.  Contrary to what we might think, the dogs find the little pests in corners in rooms and behind draperies and such. Sounds to me like the little buggers are smarter than the average nuisance because we tend to think we might locate them hiding beneath our lovely down comforters not holed up in the dark corner of the room.  Well, anyway, I do hope I never have to go in search of these canines for a problem in my own house.  Do keep in mind though when you might be tempted to purchase something in a consignment store, you never know what unwelcome guests might be following you home.

I’ll get right to the point here though and that is – should you ever have reason to suspect that you are hosting these offensive buggers, do not, under any circumstances, try to eradicate them yourself. I am here to tell you that you will be taking your life in your hands and that would be much more painful than a few red welts covering your assets. Just this morning, I read that dozens of Americans have fallen ill from using insecticides on their own.  As a matter of fact a North Carolina woman actually died after using 18 cans of chemical fogger to attack the tiny little blood suckers. I wonder who croaked first – her or the bugs.  Try to imagine breathing in that bedroom and run for the gas mask. Sad that the federal health officials have to issue a warning for consumers to be careful when attempting to kill the reddish brown little insects.

I’ll close by saying that though their bites cause itching and welts, they are not known to spread disease. They are a major hassle. In recent national surveys of exterminators, bed bugs were named the toughest pests to get rid of. I wonder if I could find a way for those sniffing dogs to train me. Makes you think twice about which hotels you stay in doesn’t it???

  1. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
