Cincinnati Gripped With Bedbug Infestation
WKRC, Local 12's Rich Jaffe is reporting on an apparent massive bedbug infestation that has struck the City of Cincinnati.
My guess is that bedbugs don't pay much attention to municipal boundaries, so everyonne in the region could be in deep doo any time now.
Officials are recommending that homeowners encase any infested furniture in airtight plastic bags and throw it out in the regular trash.
Apparently they recognize this might be difficult for some people so they have also set up a hotline to arrange pickup of infested items, (513) 591-6000. Apparently you press 1 for health information, and 2 for trash collection information.
Human blood is the favorite food of the bedbug, but can live for up to a year without it.
Just makes you feel REAL clean just thinking about it, doesn't it?
