Bedbugs: City Rankings (Now I itch!)

I’ve written about this in the past and each time, as I am reading the article, I develop an itch…like a pin prick somewhere on my body. Psychosomatic disorders is another topic for later perhaps?

“It is said that bedbugs are not a health hazard and they can’t transmit disease. But I believe they are talking about a bedbug transmitting disease from injecting saliva into your skin during the initial stages of feeding on your blood.

After a bedbug has finished feeding (about fifteen minutes), it is engorged with human blood. The slightest pressure will cause the bug to burst open and spray blood in all directions. Picture of a bedbug that popped and was partially filled with blood can be found at http://www.badbedbugs.com/bed-bug-bites/(X)

Here is a list of the top, frequent U.S. cities with bedbug treatments. Now I’m itching again! Nasty little critters, but beyond itching and the mental imagery of blood bloated crawlies around your face at night, they allegedly do not pose a disease hazard, just that bite/itching thing. Damn, now I’m itching again! Consider this a non-flyfishing entomological lesson, of sorts. Dust mites, bed bugs, spiders, fleas….it’s a wonder we get any sleep.

Bed Bug Love & You

BedBugger.com is a hugely popular site and consistent referrer to SwittersB because way back I wrote about the more common than you want to think pest. This week, Bedbugger passed the 14 million visitors mark, a true indication that I am itching right now just typing that. Bedbugger is a good resource to research these prevalent pests. Geeze, you are probably itching how…your scalp, your face, you hoohaw? Sorry! Landlord/Tenant, Multi-Lingo Resources. Geeze my nose itches now!
