The Bedbugger Blog took its name from the Yahoo Group of the same name which was, in turn, started as a discussion group for readers of Caitlin’s Bed Bug Blog. The Bedbugger blog is in no way connected to the Yahoo Group or The Bed Bug Blog.
Complicated? Think of it this way: bed bug discussions spread as fast as the monsters themselves. Bed bug bloggers are springing up everywhere. Like bed bugs, but way cuter, and entirely benevolent. We’re sorry you’re joining our club. But if you have to fight a war, don’t do it alone.
Nobugsonme (who lives in NYC) wrote most of the posts and FAQs.
Jessinchicago (Chicago) and Bugzinthehood (NYC), Parakeets (Boston), and NYC entomologist Lou Sorkin, were contributors to the blog when it started. Lou and Parakeets are still participating actively.
More recent blog authors have included S., Hopelessnomo, NYC PCO / entomologist Winston O’Buggy (not his real name), and our brilliant-yet-anonymous Spanish translator “Tranduc”, without whom we would not be able to provide any Spanish FAQs. (The weird foreign characters that sometimes pop up are not Tranduc’s fault, but that of some rogue WordPress issues, and we’re working on them!)
Countless others have generously contributed their ideas, stories, and suggestions via the comments in the Bedbugger blog, and the posts and responses in the Bedbugger forums. I’d love to thank many of them individually by name here, but I would undoubtedly leave others out (undeservedly so).
All posts and FAQs are authored by the person whose username is at the bottom of the posting, except for a couple of FAQs that were written and compiled by other writers from the Bedbugger yahoo group (which is otherwise a separate entity), and this is clearly stated where relevant.
