Bedbugs On The Increase

 

 

For reasons not fully understood, bedbugs are making a return to all parts of the United States but the northwest seems to be experiencing the most problems.

Experts theorize that bedbugs are developing a resistance to insecticides.

When visiting hotels check the mattress under the sheet as that is the most likely place they will be. Bedbugs travel on clothing, linens etc. so thoroughly wash belongings in hot water when returning home.

Bedbugs can be killed with all natural insecticides that they haven't developed a resistance to.
