There was no escape, my Grandfather had to erect another house on the other side of his land , burn down the old house after he had built a new one. Thats the only sure fire method of getting rid of them, Clothes , furniture, everything had to be burned, That may sound drastic but what or you too do, This was the 50’s and 60’s, hadn’t heard of them since, now they or back with a vengeance . What I would like to know or they originally from North America or were they brought over here like the Black Rat? One more thing , cold will kill the, you can put your clothes in a commercial dryer , the heat will kill them , the home dryers may not get hot enough. But who has a freezer big enough to put your clothes in.

In reference to the growing bed bug infestation, I would refer you to the following links:

I am not minimizing the flea infestation problem in any way. The issue with bed bugs is that many people use inappropriate measures to fight the problem which are proving ineffective and actually harmful to humans and pets.

Besides not causing/carrying disease, it seems as if there would be over-the-counter bedbug remedies sold and media advertising for these products as well. The only reference to bedbugs I, as well as several people i spoke to about this can bring to our memories is the rhyme quoted above. Flea infestation seems a bigger problem. Maybe I’m biased because I volunteer for a nonprofit animal rescue organization and have to deal with flea infestations often

There are wildlife in the universe among much species, that strongest can eat “the weak” species. Human, until now, is the champions than, for example, dinosaur that its strongest animal. All are in this universe scared to the human, because they are, beside has brainpower, is also have solidarity. Next, after the human is the winner, they will be intrigue among them, and the best brainpower will be set our universe. Who ? Us !….
