Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite

Seriously, don't let them! This ugly little parasite is all too real. The one pictured below is engorged on human blood, as evidenced by the red color. Nice.
They have made the news recently because 'authorities' are claiming that these insects are becoming a global crisis.

One sign that you might have a bedbug infestation is if you discover orderly rows of red, irritated bites on your skin. They prefer to live in bedding and mattresses, so I think I will sleep on my sofa tonight.

One positive thing is that they aren't considered dangerous, because they don't readily spread disease. But they are considered ugly.
