There is nothing like your first night in a new house or apartment. That is, of course, after you have unpacked and organized all of your belongings. The question remains though: Have you checked for those creepy critters called bedbugs?
It's no secret that bedbugs are running rampant throughout colleges, homes, offices and hotels across the country. These pesky creatures have worked their way into the cracks and crevices of our beds, offices and cars, and spread like wildfire.

Why are these little bloodsucking critters not going away? It would seem that with all the news stories, we as a public would know the precautions needed in place so that we don't find ourselves battling a case of the bedbugs.
With all this talk of bugs in beds, we know that the clean freaks in the kennel are probably ready to jump off the pet parent bandwagon, but never fear, because pets cannot carry bed bugs.
Last year, some friends asked me to come spend a week with them at their new home in Mexico. "There's just one thing," they told me. "We don't have any furniture in the guest room yet, so you'll be on an air mattress. You don't mind, do you?"

While most of us are worrying if our flight will be on time and if we remembered to pack enough socks, bed bugs are making their way into our business class seats.
