Ellen’s theory as to how bed bugs came back

in bed bugs, celebrities with bed bugs, tipping point

We know the theories as to why bed bugs came back (and by these, I mean: the end-of-DDT, increase in international travel, no-more-routine-baseboard-spraying), but you may enjoy hearing Ellen DeGeneres’s theory about the logistics of how bed bugs came back.

I’ll count it as a “tipping point” that bed bugs are now the fodder of talk show opening monologues. I am still waiting for Maya Rudolph to appear in a smart Saturday Night Live sketch about them, but I suppose she is still healing. I do understand.

I don’t know. The video was posted on youtube on 6/10, but who knows when it aired. There may have been an LA-area broadcast. Or maybe Brian Williams finally aired his bed bug segment and we all missed it? 😉

A lot of people still do not know about bbs and what this is causing people, even with media exposure. I just phoned my son’s school which is 100 miles away and they had NO CLUE about bbs when I told them that I had them and that I did not want my son on home visits until this was resolved.

Hi Anonymous,
That’s why more media coverage is SO important. The more, and the more accurate, the better!
