Bedbugs Are Back

After being wiped out in the U.S., bedbugs have been making a comeback. I've been following this story for a few years, but apparently the situation has become much worse, especially in the Northeast.

We were thinking of visiting the Northeast for a vacation this fall. Maybe we'll go somewhere else.

There are two big problems with exterminating bedbugs in the 21st century: the people who knew a lot about bedbugs are dead, and the chemical they used to kill bedbugs is banned.

Good night, sleep tight...

UPDATE 08/25/2010 - This topic is gaining traction -- the Chicago Tribune and Advertising Age have covered it this week. According to Terminix, Chicago is the fifth most bedbug-infested city in the country, so I guess it doesn't matter where we go on vacation.
