You are an IDIOT and a biggot! Why would you automatically say something about illegal immigrants bringing them? What about American tourists that travel to other countries on vacation or on missionary trips? Grow up and get your head out of your *** and try to learn something besides hatred. IDIOT!

Don't buy furniture from yard sales or second hand for that matter. You can still get these in new furniture because of them in warehouses and being stored on containers and such. Bringing these used items in your home is not good.

I've seen bedbugs in 8500 square foot homes, and in 600 square foot subsidized housing... and just about everything in between. The one universal is that they need human blood. They don't care the color, nationality, or income of the person they are feeding on. They don't care if the house is spotless with weekly maid service, or so packed with personal effects and old food you can't walk through it. They just care about getting their next warm meal. And that is us. If anything, in cleaner homes they don't have to worry about as many insect predators.

Like many problems, once in place, the issue isn't where they came from... it's what do we do now that we have the problem. Actually, it's what do we do now that they have RETURNED. Prior to World War II, up to 25% of US households were infested. Back then it wasn't illegals, or poor people getting the blame. So we would be far better off figuring out ways to deal with this insect on a community level, instead of trying to assign blame on who brought them here.
