Bed bugs aren’t a particularly exciting topic, but my family and I are more familiar with them than we’d like.
Whilst holidaying in Sacramento some years ago, we realised we’d picked up some bed bugs from the hotel we were staying in. Now this was a fairly nice hotel, so we were surprised. It wasn’t until weeks later that my wife and started noticing lesions on our skin, and the kids had them too. We started seeing evidence of the bed bugs in the bedroom too – we’d never seen anything like this before.
Anyhow, turns out bed bugs are on the rise, and that the critters are mostly immune to the pesticides which almost wiped them out some decades ago. But we didn’t want pesticides in our home anyway, so we sought out alternatives.
It took ages to get rid of them, and we learnt a lot in the process. I created this site so that you don’t have to go through the work and frustration we experienced in ridding our household of bed bugs.
All I can say is, don’t stress! You’ll be rid of them soon enough! There’s plenty of info on this site which will help.
Good luck and happy bed bug hunting(?!)
