Bed bugs are becoming such a common occurrence in the U.S. that their discovery no longer makes the evening news; but these blood-feeding parasites are still out there. Bed bugs could come home with you from the health club. They could follow your children home from summer camp. You could bring them home from a store or the dry cleaners. In large metropolitan areas like New York City, 1 in 5 residents has experienced a bed bug infestation at home, work or a hotel or knows someone who has battled bed bugs.
