Why are bed bugs back?
Bed bugs have enjoyed a resurgence worldwide over the last two decades, as the use of more harsh pestides was curbed for environmental reasons (DDT, Chlordane, & Lindane particularly). The lack of suitable, environmentally friendly pesticides, increases in international travel, and local geographic factors have allowed the bed bug population world wide to explode. Based on the sheer numbers in the population, the liklihood you will contact bed bugs in your life is fairly high.

Please relax, understand you got nothing more than the medical equivolent of a mosquito bite, and you are allergic to them. There are concerns, but they are not life threatening in any way.
