in bed bugs

Did you ever notice that the bug sprays are in the same part of the supermarket as the religious candles?

I have seen this, too, and feel it represents an obvious prejudice–that marketing executives believe that the same demographic groups that light these candles are the demographic groups that have bedbugs. No! Everyone can have bedbugs. However, I do feel wealthy people who have bedbugs might be less likely to admit it.

It’s a good point you make, Parakeets.

It’s worth noting none of these sprays are labeled for bed bugs, but it is true many will try and use them for bed bugs anyway.
