Spiders love me and always have. I can't go a week without waking up with a bite on my body. I must have sweet blood.

bed bugs aren't fleas right? I just hate fleas.. I'm terribly allergic to their bites... I haven't had many bites this year, but my ex-school was infested with them... it sucked big time...

ick, ick-big time! We have too many bugs in FL, we don't need any more. After reading that, I think I would freak and run to a motel (whoops, that is NOT safe) if I found any here.

How could you even stay in your home long enough to get an exterminator out to deal with them??

I know! I was thinking that too. A lot of insects/amphibians/reptiles don't bother me much, but this story really freaked me out. Too icky!

The phrase to calm the hysteria

We've been living with bedbugs for centuries and apparently just recently they got the idea of biting us...

I heard somewhere that the average person eats something like 14 spiders over the course of his/her lifetime while he/she is sleeping. That's right up there on the gross factor.
