I was just listening to a radio show talking about the increasing rise of bedbugs all over N.America in hotels, movie theatres and taxi cabs. They are apparently extremely resilient too and hard to get rid of. It used to be at universities that on moving day everyone just put the furniture they no longer needed or wanted out on the curb and whoever needed/wanted it could take it away. Now, I don't think I would do that.
Do you have any experiences with them? What do you think about reintroducing the use of DEET? Do places like Europe and Australia have this problem too? I don't remember hearing anything about bedbugs until about 3 years ago when a Winnipeg hotel that I had stayed at was said in the newspaper to have had a big outbreak.
