Nighty Night, Don't Let the Bed Bugs Bite! If They Do. . . .

I just learned bed bugs are back in the United States with a vengeance from way back in the 1950's when they were pretty much eradicated.  Back in the 1950's they had a cute little saying my mother said good night with:
"Nighty night, sleep tight and don't let the bed bugs bite! If they do, hit em on the coo coo!"
According to the latest slew of articles, bed bugs are an epidemic in the United States and other parts of the world.  The new generation of bed bugs that survived decades since the infestation have also developed an immunity to the chemicals formerly used to kill them off.  So, what are we going to do?

These blood sucking little vipers recently caused the shut down a Victoria's Secret store in New York and an Abercrombie and Fitch. see Victoria's Secret Closes for Bed Bugs, Infestations on the Rise.  They spread by hitching a ride in air traveler's luggage and clothing.

Bed bugs are a lot like bankers.
