Nearly eradicated in the United States 50 years ago, resistant strains of “super” bedbugs are infesting mattresses at an alarming rate. In what’s being touted as the biggest mystery in entomology, all 50 states are reporting outbreaks of the blood-sucking nocturnal critters.
I read whispers of bedbug infestation stories in guidebooks. But to be honest, this isn’t an issue that I’ve seen widely discussed on travel forums and blogs. I’m not sure if that’s because the existence of bedbugs isn’t widespread. Or that their existence is widespread, but the issue of dealing with them is a non-factor.
To my well-traveled readership, what have your nocturnal experiences been with creatures of the multi-legged variety?
