Something Creepy This Way Comes
Bedbugs don't make the best bedfellows. Turns out, you can ask an increasing number of people about that. Infestations are increasing across the US. At DeBoer Pest Control in Onalaska, Jim DeBoer has seen plenty of them. Bedbugs, he says, multiply rapidly, are hard to kill, and tend to hitch rides on luggage and cast-off furniture. He says you never want to pick up a free mattress on the street and some cities have enacted ordinances mandating old mattresses get cut up so you can't get an old one curbside. Bedbug numbers that DeBoer is seeing now? Tip of the iceberg, he says. It's only going to get worse.
