Tonight’s episode of Hoarders on A&E (Monday 10 pm, Tuesday 2 am EST) features a bed bug case. According to A&E,
Bob and Betsey’s home is filled with broken furniture, appliances, food, piles of clothes, mounds of books and toys. An invasion of fleas and bed bugs has forced them and their four children into a tent in the backyard where they have been living for the last two months. But with the dropping temperatures and growing fear of being reported to local authorities, they must clean out their entire house or risk losing everything.
This is not the first time we’ve heard of people fleeing into a tent in their yard to get away from bed bugs. (Note: bed bugs can infest tents, too.)
