We all remember the sweet rhyme from childhood warning of bed bugs. Contrary to that playful couplet from our youth, bed bugs are anything but the harmless stowaway in our beds. The can take hold and infest many areas of our homes, including your bed, your furniture, even your carpet, and while you sleep or watch TV, they bite you. The next morning, you’re left wondering why you’re red and itchy. And there’s nothing whimsical about that!
