Well now we find out that the ‘hairier’ you are, the less likely it is for bed bugs to attack you. Seems they are not only vile, parasitic vermin, but they are also lazy. Really hairy backs, arms and legs make for more difficult maneuvering. It seems odd that beggars really can be choosers!
And researchers led by Dr. Coby Schal at North Carolina State University have determined that bed bugs are very likely to breed incestuously with no harmful genetic effects. Most species will perish due to inbreeding when mutations doom the offspring. But not bed bugs – Mom can breed with son, brother with sister, etc. and they keep multiplying like parasitic rabbits. According to bed bugs, incest is best!
Do you see a pattern here? These creatures, kindly referred to merely as ‘pests’, just keep giving us bad news. And more reasons to shudder with disgust.
For those out there who think that bed bugs were a media hyped sensation that is so “last year”, get a clue. Get a very large, neon, in-your-face clue that bed bugs are growing exponentially and will be a part of your world very soon. And it is not due to your hygiene, your income, or the quality rating of the hotel you stay in. These bugs are everywhere – more places than the Kardashian family and more common than political rhetoric. They may be in your home right now and you don’t even know it!
It’s true. They may be breeding and multiplying fueled by your hemoglobin and you don’t even know it. Ends up only 70% of people have reactions to bed bugs, so could you be the 30%? You have just been given your next self-preservation assignment and that is to thoroughly inspect your living spaces – beds, furniture, clothing, etc. to see if you find the telltale signs of adult bugs, dark specks or small streaks of blood smeared across any of the above. If any of these are a positive identification, well, bummer.
How’s that for bad news and an incredible ‘Ick’ factor? It is wise to keep an ongoing lookout for these tiny little monsters so you don’t have to deal with the nightmare they create. And if the unimaginable (and very likely) event happens that you have bed bugs, don’t worry because Greenbug is the ultimate weapon. It kills, it repels, it never stains and wipes out bed bugs plus their eggs. The reality of bed bugs is they are an epidemic of parasitic, blood-sucking bugs that attack you while you sleep and are your most vulnerable.
Kind of makes having a hairy back seem minimal, right?
