    You can fight them with Diatomaceous Earth too. A 40lb bag of the stuff (which I can testify works incredibly well) is only 20 bucks at Tractor Supply. MUCH more difficult if you have kids though, because it’s a long-term battle. You gotta dust your bed basically every night….for a year or so. You’re setting a trap for the bugs- if they walk through the DE, it’s a slow-acting death sentence for them. You uh…. have to be the bait though.

    Kids make this difficult because it’s more beds to dust. And you gotta keep your bed away from the wall- if one is safely on the bed, on you, and can then travel across your pillow onto the wall, they’ll just do that instead of walking through the DE (they’re actually smart enough to avoid the DE if it’s applied too heavily. I have seen it.)

    Here’s another fun fact! They can crawl on ceilings- and detecting your CO2, they’ll drop onto you. Seen this as well. Weee!!

    A lot of this is just putting bits and pieces of truth together to make a list. House wide heat treatment can kill them. They don’t transmit diseases, and you can take control of the situation a lot faster and easier than this story would have you believe. Fear doesn’t make it so.

    MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) is a bacterium and not a virus. Furthermore, antibiotics do not work on viruses. I just wanted to let you know.

    If you want to know another disturbing fact, look up “traumatic insemination”. That’s how bed bugs reproduce.

      Wow. Apparently there is absolutely nothing remotely warm or fuzzy about these creatures.

      I was really surprised that wasn’t on this list. Definitely evil.

    My recommendation?

    Constant ridiculously high BAC (1st layer chemical warfare) and plenty of spicy pork rind farts (2nd layer chemical warfare). Any bedbug that can live through my average BAC and a dutch-oven of spicy pork rind poots has earned not only my blood but my respect.

      277Volt, that has got to be one of the best ideas I’ve ever heard of! I’d substitute spicy pork rinds for a spice beef and bean burrito! BWA HA HA HA!

        Yum yum! Great pointer! Although if they survive that nothing kills like a good strong curry especially with coconut milk.
