Bed Bug Central’s North American Bed Bug Summit started today, and the news media has a new cimex-themed story to feed on.
Here’s a segment from The Today Show:
Note: from what I read and hear, people in “foreign countries” are as surprised by the return of bed bugs in their area as those of us in North America, and as unwilling to just put up with them.
Bed bugs may be “springing back” here and everywhere, but the evidence is they never entirely went away.
And here’s another from MSNBC:
Note: “checking” your luggage is not an easy matter. If you rely on a visual inspection alone, you may later be surprised to find you brought bed bugs home. For more advice, try the Travel FAQs.
One of the vendors MSNBC mentions is
Insect inferno. I do not know much about this product (beyond what’s on their website), but I am intrigued.
