Ok, probably a dumb questions...but what do the bites look like? People probably think that they were bitten by a mosquito.
Perhaps you should READ the article and look at the picture that's there too?

Just a thought.

If you read the post your were snarling at, you would see she asked what the *bites* looked like. The article doesn't say what they look like; it says what the *bugs* look like, and that's what the picture shows. Perhaps she was reading quickly ... like you were.

I'm sad to see that the author's brief and not totally informed comments have set off a spate of hateful "foreigner" responses. Bedbugs are completely racially, nationality, and gender blind.
They only care about warm bodies with blood. Lighten up. Also DDT was proven to thin bird eggs shells.

The BITE can look like a mosquito bite on someone who is not very allergic. On very sensitive people they can welt up into a large swollen area the size of quarter or bigger and be EXTREMELY itchy. A person can lose a lot of sleep also by being bitten or by trying not to be bitten.

The hole Rachel Carlson book was a hoax. Below is just one of thousands articles proving DDT to be basically harmless

www.lewrockwell.com/rockwell/silent-spring.ht...

And why does the writer jump to the conclusion that we are the ones bringing it back from abroad. Have you been to LA lately. Mexico has moved about 200 miles north.

Everywhere you look, illegals are here doing work we won't. Or so they say. Which goes back to the last article about shrimp and the guy said there are people hungry enough to steal food.

Hell's bells, the illegals walk a thousand miles to eat your food and leave bugs in your beds.

There should already be a program in place for hotels and WHO CARES if they are in jails. Prisoners are already treated to good. Lets put the money into schools so we can educate our children.

My daughter took a trip to the doctor in January for a skin infection. I learned then, after they ruled out the bed bug possibility, that bed bugs bite in threes. "Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner" is what I was told. Don't know if that helps with the bite description, but yuck!
