Gee golly and YUK. I read in the newspaper a few days ago that not only are bedbugs surging everywhere but also in the more unlikely places. Such as libraries!!!
I mean...libraries for pete sake. They come in on patrons but mostly on books that are returned. There will sometimes be bugs in the binding and eggs as well. Here you are, all unsuspecting at the library choosing some reading materials to take home and the books are sometimes infested.
The libraries, some anyway, are hiring personnel with bedbug sniffing dogs who alert on the bugs in the stacks and elsewhere in the building. I applaud their actions!
YUK! Motels/hotels for certain are too often affected-- and last summer on a trip it was good thing we checked the bedding before we went to bed, each of us in our rooms. My room was safe but my sons were bombarded with bedbugs. Luckily they saw them soon as they turned back the bedding. Oh how totally disgusting. Yes, they got another room but not the way you want to start the process of sleep and you fear equally for any other room you're in.
Too, you may get infested on a city conveyance..bus, taxi, train. They are in some department stores sometimes as well, as infested persons try on clothes and perhaps leave a bug in the clothing all unaware. It's not the store's fault. It makes you hate to sit anywhere if you allow yourself to think about it.
Those things are a scourge.
