life is like the tide…it comes and goes on its own time

don’t let the bedbugs bite

they’re baa-aack! , that is. as if we don’t have enough to worry about in life, we now have to worry about a new epidemic of these pesky, blood-sucking parasites infesting hotels, dorms and, maybe, even your own bed!

startling factoids:

  • they are nocturnal
  • they may be associated to the Hepatitis B virus
  • they are abundant in warm climates
  • they hide in places other than your bed
  • adult bedbugs can live several years without food
  • you might mistake the bite as being from fleas or mosquitos, they look similar
  • they are difficult to exterminate

what you can do before calling in the exterminator:

  • wash your bed linens in hot water
  • clear the clutter off your nightstand
  • vacuum your mattress very well
  • keep the baseboards dusted and any cracks sealed
  • practice feng shui

nighty night,
sleep tight…
