This YouTube video appears to have been taken by a PCO during a second visit to a badly infested apartment.

The person who posted it, iamyournot, said in the comments,

The Video doesn’t show how bad it really was, I had to stop taping because there were thousands of bed bugs running over the top of the bed, after the opening shot, the video was taken on the second visit, the room was clear by then, it took three visits to totally clean out this apartment of bed bugs.

It sounds like it was a thousand times worse in the first visit. It’s hard to believe someone could have an infestation this bad. If they did not react to bed bug bites, they must surely have seen the bed bug feces everywhere– let alone “thousands of bed bugs” running around– and wondered what was up?

I also found this lovely ad for PCI (Pest Control India):

And this one, from Suburban Exterminating:

And finally, though Harris Pest Control in Detroit makes no mention of bed bugs in their ad, this was priceless and delightful:

Nasty. The video demonstrates that many tenants are asleep at the wheel. It also suggests the true victims of bed bugs — people who live next door to slobs like this guy. Yes anyone can get bed bugs as NB always reminds us, but only slobs let it go this far.

totally agree with James,
aaannd these ads are priceless.
however i refuse to watch the one about the apt being TAKEN over, b/c that just boggles my mind. imagination will suffice just fine. the ones of the couples in bed are hysterrriiicalll. see, humor helps with EVERYTHING IN LIFE.
