Yes, bedbugs are making


Yes, bedbugs are making a comeback in hotels, according to experts. No, these are not lice, fleas or scabies. These are those old bugs from medieval times that likely spawned the phrase "sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite."

Bedbug experts cite several reasons for this resurgence, including increased travel.

"Homeowners are staying in hotels, picking up bedbugs in their suitcases and bringing them home," said Cindy Mannes of the National Pest Management Association in Dunn Loring, Virginia, outside Washington.

Feelin' strong? Keep reading then...

Bedbugs are small flat bugs about the size of an apple seed that live in cracks and crevices of beds. They only come out at night to feed on people's blood with a painless bite. The only way to know about a bite is when you see the red, itchy welts on your skin in the morning.

"You'll also see dark red or black streaks of digested blood on the sheets along with a very distinctive, sweet smell which is the telltale sign of bedbug infestations," said Ludek Zurek of the Kansas State University's Department of Entomology.

Happy Travels! ;)
