We all like a bargain… or to think we got a great deal on the things we purchase. Flea markets, estate sales, garage-sales, used furniture stores and other “trash-to-treasure” opportunities CAN be a great way to find something you need [or always wanted, like the MONKEES lunchbox I always wanted as a kid].
The problem is: Unless you are careful, you could get “more for your money” than you expected.
Hello my tasty-human friends. I’m MrBedBug, Chief SpokesBug for FLfresh.com and EcoBugFREE, the BedBug Eliminator. I am a TV star on MrBedBug-TV on YouTube and Editor of the BedBug News Reports.com
Every time I post, I get some comments along the line of [“you are trying to create a panic”] It’s just not true. Have you seen the list of America’s Top 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities? Read the list HERE. I’m not the only one to warn of this. The article we see at the Bedbug NewsReports.com are usually “scandalous”, trying to grag a headline, instead of really reporting “news”. “awareness” articles do pop-up from time to time, about Bedbugs in flea markets.
BedBugs are hitch-hikers. They cling to anything [mostly fabric or dark places] that smells like a tasty-human. [that’s why I always start these post, with the phrase I use]. BedBugs get into your life because you’ve bumped into them at the movie theater, the DR office, on a bus, in the workplace, or had other contact. If you believe that BedBugs only live in low-rent motels, on the wrong side of town, you are sadly mistaken. You are not alone in that belief. THAT is the very reason major cities in this country will NEVER get off the Top 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities list. They refuse to treat this as a public health issue.
The GOOD NEWS is: BedBugs do NOT spread disease. Make no mistake, they are annoying, disruptive and a hassle, but they won’t kill you [in fact, its unlikely they will even make you sick].
The BAD NEWS is: BedBugs are a public policy “health” concern, because of the disruption, anguish and economic impact they have on cities. Do YOU want to go to a convention city where you “know” BedBugs are waiting for you in the local convention center, restaurants, and yes, hotel rooms? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
Communities need to work together to greatly reduce the BedBug infestation frequency. That starts by de-stigmatizing BedBugs. BedBugs can infest the best homes, the fanciest restaurants and the “nice” parts of town. It only takes one…. [actually two… ya know, that whole “two by two”/Noah’s ark thing] It only take one [pregnant female] BedBug to start a new “nest” [called a harborage] in your home, business, or favorite recreation spot.
The earlier a “nest” is discovered the easier it is to stop the infestation [and as a by-product, stop the spread to other places too. ] Cities and Counties should offer REAL assistance, without guilt or shame, to anyone who suspect they have a BedBug infestation. This is one of the reasons I [the famous Mr Bedbug] write these post, and edit the BedBugNewsreports.com. There is A LOT of bad info floating around about Bedbugs. Some of it is folklore, but some of it is also “scare tactics” from companies selling products of varying degrees of effectiveness.
