Sleep Tight and Don’t Let the Bedbugs Bite

When I was growing up my mother would tuck me into bed every night and whisper, “goodnight… sleep tight… don’t let the bed bugs bite.” Until recently, I always thought that the saying was just an endearing bedtime phrase that didn’t mean anything. Well, those days are over. After nearly sixty years of living mostly bedbug-free, the US is facing a national infestation. Bedbug infestations have risen 500% in the last few years alone, and they’re not just in dirty hotels – they’re at the 5-star ones as well. They are closing down businesses and can be found at your local movie theaters, airports, and retail stores as they inch closer and closer to your home. They are quite easy to bring home if you have been near them.

The occurrence of these tiny, blood-sucking pests has been reported in every kind of neighborhood, in every state across the country including Oklahoma. What it means is that you’re at risk right now. Here’s a beautiful infographic that illustrates the rise of bedbugs, the most infected cities, the difficulty of controlling them, and what to do about them:
