bed bug infestation.

You would think that swimming across the Rio Grande would get rid of them.

One more reason to close the borders. Hotels should throw away the mattresses if used by a traveler from out of this country-and bill them for a new one.

Let's throw some more money into an awareness program that will do NOTHING but make some bigwig even richer.

STOP MORTGAGE SERVICING FRAUD.

Throw some money at PREDATORY LENDING.

I'm really scared now. I hope 'Raid' and 'Black Flag' don't let me down. Wouldn't an ordinary 'flea bomb' wipe them out?

Jails, eh? Watch how quickly that gets dealt with once inmates start filing frivolous lawsuits about it.

How about legalizing DDT again? So what,'Silent Spring'? Birds are loud and annoying when you're trying to sleep in Sunday morning. Who cares if two headed frogs start showing up?

I'm curious to know what the all-knowing authorities exactly plan to do about it.

They come in tracks, not unlike say, the local herion addict's wounds. Very linear. Had the misfortune of renting a house with the bed bug's cousin, the bat bug, and it had a major infestation. As you might suspect, the house had a bat problem. Anyway, they need a magnifying glass to see the differences, but they were not bed bugs but their cousin. Bat bugs are more easily receptive to comon exterminating techniques.
