文献摘要

  “Good night, sleep tight; don’t let the bed bugs bite; If they do, let them chew, because they need to eat too.” When the anonymous author of this poem sarcastically advised the reader to “let them chew,” that poet certainly could not have anticipated the cataclysmic rise in today’s bed bug population or the ensuing havoc and real turmoil that bed bugs are causing in our modern society. Unfortunately, bed bugs are back and influencing the way we live, work, and travel. With the stories of lives turned upside-down by bed bugs—fueled by a willing and able media sharing disturbing bed bug-related stories—bed bugs are getting all the attention these days and, perhaps, rightfully so. No one is safe from the bed bug epidemic that has invaded our daily and legal lives. In fact, even the methods used to kill bed bugs are causing devastating problems. There are reports that chemicals used to treat bed bugs overseas have killed tourists, while high-powered convection heaters used to kill bed bugs recently burned to the ground a house in Ohio. Hence, this Article is designed to provide factual information about bed bugs to protect our families, colleagues, and clients from these pesky little creatures and the devastation they leave behind.
