The bed bugs are coming.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) worries about bed bugs so much that they hosted the very first bed bug summit yesterday. This scary news was enough to make me come out of my long blogging hiatus.

They are like vampires! Bed bugs feed on human blood and are virtually indestructible. There are currently no pesticide or spray that can kill them so prevention is key.

I hate learning about this. One must not underestimate the power of suggestion. I bet I'll be itching and turning in my bed tonight.
