Bed Bugs

Three months ago I had never heard of bed bugs.  I had a minor freakout, on this blog in fact, when it seemed that we had an infestation.  Turns out we didn't, but Vilvy's nonna did (Vilvy had just been visiting and had the itchy bites.)  From that event I now have lots of information about these itchy critters.  Unlike any other infestation I have heard of, eradicating them often means throwing out loads of stuff--couches, chairs, cushions, curtains, carpets....  Friends had to refurnish entire rooms to get rid of these things.  Nothing we currently use kills them effectively.
