    There's a new video from CBS Early Show today about a journalist who got bed bugs, warning consumers about bed bug treatment scams.

    I comment on this as well as on a misleading article which hints at a connection between La Nina and bed bugs, as well as on the seasonal nature of bed bug media reports.

    Please have a look and if you have comments, please leave them on the blog article! Thanks!

    For the record, Action Pest Control was the team called in to inspect/verify an empty "set up" apartment in NYC. Not sure why all the results were edited out and only the San Diego location was featured. This was done in a Chris Hanson style and while "most" PCO's in NYC were honest, there were a few who were not. Perhaps that footage is being held for a later airing.

    This was one of many feature stories that we have been a part of and each time we have strongly stressed the importance of verifying all alerts...only to see the final airing and those important words left on the cutting room floor... not catchy or important enough to the story I guess.

    Thanks, Todd.

    We've heard this before from lots of people who've spoken to journalists about dogs (it's happened to me too).
