Bedbugger in the Press
Bedbugger.com has been featured in the press, including online, print, and broadcast media. Here are some examples:
- The Daily Dot explored “The bizarre and fascinating world of bedbug message boards” (12/2014) in an article written by a Daily Dot writer who was also a Bedbugger Forum user.
- The article “Six Horrific Realities of Living with a Bed Bug Infestation” (2/2014) described the author’s use of this website:
For support, I found myself reaching out to the only group who could truly sympathize: other people living with infestations. They are clustered on a little island of sanity in the middle of the Internet called BedBugger.com. As a source of news, information, commiseration, and (somehow) rationality, I can confidently say that they are totally responsible for what tattered shreds remain of my sanity (shortly after I joined, one long-term member actually let me call them in the middle of the night and panic). Just knowing other folks are going through the same thing makes you feel less alone. Not that I ever really felt “alone” with the 7 million other inhabitants in my apartment.
