    My sister let me know about the article in Reader's Digest. Hope it's ok to post a link:

    http://www.rd.com/your-home/cleaning/insect-and-critter-control/yikes-i-think-i-have-bedbugs/article.html

    Some of the things said though are questionable. I don't like that they went and got packing boxes to put stuff in for one. I'm doing away with all boxes myself. Read it and let me know what you all think.

    In the local paper yesterday an associatted press article stated that bed bugs jump from person to person.

    Still seems like there is a lot of misinformation out there. Although it's good to see it showing up more in print.

    Ok so the reader'd digest ended up being put on main page. I ended up finding a link to the newspaper article from the assoiated press.

    Here it is:

    It's titled "New York battles bedbug invasion"

    http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/nationworld/sfl-fltribedbugssbjan28,0,7340582.story

    Pay close attention to the part, "they can hitch rides on clothing and jump between people in elevators and on crowded streets", well they got it partially right.

    Good catch, IveBeenBugged. They don't jump between people in elevators.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."
