The BedBug News Reports is here to help you learn how to avoid Bedbugs and kill an infestation in your home, apartment, condo, hospital, ALF or other living facility. Because we “experts”, who follow the media, we see lots of dumb [or incomplete] news reports about even dumber stuff that happens. Todays episode is a great example. I understand the local TV news business, and every item can’t be a 60 Minutes-style investigative news report, but shouldn’t your local station at least ask obvious questions?

Hello my tasty-human friends. I’m MrBedBug, Chief SpokesBug for and EcoBugFREE, the BedBug Eliminator. I am a TV star on MrBedBug-TV on YouTube and Editor of the BedBug News

The local TV station [NewsNet5 /WEWS TV ] has a report about BedBugs in Cleveland. Since the city is on the Top 50 Most Bedbug Infested Cities in America list, the police need “protection” too.

Here’s the news report that caught our eye.

The problem is: There is NO topical spray that kills Bedbugs in the way that is described here. Either the reporters/anchors at NewsNet5 / WEWS got it “wrong” in the report, or the Police Chief was “sold a bill of goods”.

Ohio is one of the few states that created a “Bedbug Task Force” to deal with the issue and make recommendations to local authorities. NO one is suggesting the solution is BedBug Cops ? [insert theme song from my new TV show idea HERE– “BED bugs, bed BUGs, whatch gonna do? whatch gonna do when they come for you”]



Bedbugs are hitch-hikers. [You know this if you’ve read any of the pages here at the ] They will cling to any fabric that smells like a tasty-human. That’s how they [“we”] move from place to place. The ONLY food source for a hungry BedBug is a human all-you-can-eat- buffet opportunity. Ants, roaches and spiders are STUPID. They will eat any filth or grime. Most over-the-counter “Bug Sprays” will NOT kill them. [EcoBugFREE, the BedBug Eliminator is different, it’s not a toxic poison and is very effective, but in a different way].

BedBugs are SMART, and they are becoming ever-more immune to the toxic sprays that [STATE-Licensed and highly-trained] professional pest control technicians use. Are the Cops in Cleveland trained to kill Bedbugs? Are the officers “state-licensed” to carry BedBug spray….as well as their gun? We don’t think so…..and the tip-off is the comment that the small spray bottles will be kept in the patrol-car glove box. Even the BEST commercial, [and toxic as hell] chemicals used by professionals is unstable at high and low temperatures…like a hot patrol-car in a Cleveland summer or a cold winters day.

I understand that the Police Officers don’t want to bring home BedBugs in Cleveland, or any of the 5 other cities in OHIO [Dayton, Akron, Canton, Cincinnati and Columbus] that help the state earn the distinction of being the “Most BedBug Infested State in the USA. … but lets either be honest about the State-wide problem with Bedbugs in Ohio, or stop pretending that some stupid “magic” Bedbug spray will protect the Cleveland police force.

PS- Yes, I have sent a note to the Public affairs office of the Cleveland Police Dept. I’ll update this story if I get a response.

If you are an average citizen, learn to protect yourself from BedBugs in Cleveland. They are not just under your bed. Bedbugs can be “lurking” anywhere humans gather. We see reports of Bedbugs in movie theaters, DR offices, the kid’s school, the College dorm rooms, ALFs, hospitals, and many work places too. Bedbugs are the insect-world’s greatest “Hide&Seek” game players.
