Dear Johnny Bravo,

Like Korvo One, I am concerned about bedbugs here...I have been through that in Iowa, and it is awful...

Dear Johnny, some people don't react to their bites...it was really awful for me because I did...

Look into your living situation; if you are renting, you will want to make sure your landlord knows...these things are incredibly aggressive in spreading. Also, things like they can go into hibernation for a year or so, waiting until a warm body comes along to give them blood...they survive on blood...

Even very cold weather; it takes A LOT to freeze them out... and they come out at night so you won't often find them in the day.

I have a horror of them, they are an epidemic...it's extremely hard to get rid of them without a professional exterminator - in bygone days past, people would take all their furniture outside and burn it...
As you see, I have LOTS to say about bedbugs but this much should give you a bit of my experience.
And so sorry, I would not wish them on anyone.

It weird I only found 2 in the past couple of months, like I said, after searching. I stayed up till about 2am and didn't see not one. Maybe came in from outside? I'll notify my landlord and have some people check my bed thoroughly, though.

Johnny, if you can, save one of the bugs. They won't want to proceed (prolly) unless they are sure what it is...anyway that's how it worked in Iowa...

I'm going to vote against the tick---based on the fact that I think ticks have 8 legs at this state of development.

But, it's been a long time since I was actively interested in zooology.
