BedBugs are hitch-hikers… I say this all the time. Would you let family members visit YOUR home this holiday weekend, if you knew they had BedBugs in THEIR home?

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

I get lots of e-mail questions [to MrBedBug@FLfresh.com ] The one I see most often around every holiday is:

“Dear MrBedBug, The entire family is visiting for the [insert holiday here] weekend. I have just been to by [insert gossip’s name here] that [another relative] has BedBugs in their [apartment/home/condo/ homeless shelter or college dorm].
Can I ask them not to come into my home?”

My response is always: HELL, YES. It’s YOUR home, “exclude” away, but do it in a polite way.

The reality is: BedBugs can be anywhere and are non-descrimanitory. “We” will feed on any human, rich/poor, city slickers or county-bumpkins, white/black/hispanic/asian/ ancient Greek and Cave-men too. We think you are all SO tasty.

BedBugs spread infestations by following one tasty-human to places where more all-you-can-eat-buffet opportunities hang around. [That’s how BedBugs think of you tasty-humans… a buffet opportunity]. Bedbugs are found in any public place, where people gather. Movie theaters, DR offices, in the common areas in condo complexes, sports gyms, the kids school and taxi/bus/ airplane and train seats too.

I am sure it won’t matter to your family that you got advice from me [the famous MrBedBug]. Other family members will say you are “mean” or “rude”, but the reality is, until ANY BedBug infestation is taken seriously by EVERYONE, no one is safe from my BedBug family. Ask anyone who lives in one of the TOP 50 Most BedBug Infested Cities how they like knowing there are BedBugs “lurking” around every corner. You think Grandma will be mad that you dis-inviting her to the family meal? Ask the Chamber of Commerce, of those 50 cities, how expensive it is when major conventions don’t come to town and employers think twice about relocating.
–Yes, it really happens.

Killing BedBugs is a community effort. The shame and embarrassment is unnecessary. BedBugs DO NOT spread disease. Mosquitos, ticks and roaches do that. Do NOT look down on someone whose been exposed or has an active infestation in their home. Take action and help. Early detection makes the [not easy or quick] job of cleaning a Bedbug infestation less of a “chore”.

Ignoring Bedbugs doesn’t make them go away. Like teenagers at an all-you-can-eat ice cream social, they will eat and eat, until someone tells them to go away and DIE [the BedBugs, not the teenagers] LOL
