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.

I think i may have made some posts here or a related site a few years ago but the site has grown amazingly
i am a board certified entomologist and licenced pest control specialist in Toronto Canada.. been at this for nearly 30 years…
i manage an IPM based group for a major housing organization…
lots of great stuff here…. the scope of this site is truly amazing… hope i can contribute some insights … lots of areas that are still very controversial so when i have some time to scout around on the site i will see if i can add to the nuances…

Dear Sirs:

Now that it has been shown in two peer-reviewed journal articles that sulfuryl fluoride is a greenhouse gas, perhaps you would be interested in advocating the use of methyl bromide with proper environmental – scrubber – controls as shown at

I keep finding one bed bug in the bathtub once a day and I was inspected today by the pest control company that is here at my building every Thursday. I was told that it was weird to see them in the bath tub and it wasn’t likely that they would leave their food source after the person under me was sprayed. Thus, I was cleared for not having bed bugs, but it’s almost 4am and I just killed one that i found in the bathtub. Why is this happening and how can I protect myself? I’ve filled all the holes where the pipes out under the sink and have chalked up the entire bathroom myself as well as I keep all my plugs in. This is driving my crazy and sending my anxiety through the roof! I’m just so concerned that they will spread! Could they maybe be coming out of the taps???

Hi Megan,
The best person to answer this may be a pro, and they may not see it here.
