And yes, Bed Bugs are very bad here. We get about 3 to 5 calls a week regarding them.
Oh noooooo. I asked you not to tell me that....didn't I? Well, I meant to. I'd hate to see them get started here like they are in NY. We had them once when I was little. My mom burned them out. Glad she didn't burn up the mattress.

LOL, sorry. But yes they are getting so much worse then a couple of years ago. We actually found them in our hotel room in Laughlin. Luckily that is one of the first things we check when we stay in a hotel.

We have customers who have gotten them from work, hotels, guests, children staying at other peoples homes, and probably more, but can't think of them right now.

Your telling me. If hubby has a bad job that day, due to roaches or bed bugs, he will have clothes waiting for him in the garage. His work clothes go directly into the washer on hot. I will not take a chance of getting those nasty things in my home.

Google Bed Bugs, that will give you good pictures of what you are looking for. Look around the seem of the mattress and also underneath the bed and bed skirt. Also check for blood marks. When you move around and if you squish one and it has had a meal, it will small blood marks on the bed. Also make sure to check behind the frame of the bed. If they are really bad, they will also be there.
