America’s ‘Bed Bug Man’ coming to Philadelphia with warning message

    Dr. Timothy Gibb is coming to Philadelphia. And he’s bringing this terrifying life-sized bed bug with him.

    The “Bed Bug Man,” as extermination company Hot Shot calls him, is heading this way next week to talk to Philadelphians about bed bugs. Gibb, a Purdue University entomologist, will be touring the media circuit in our area to provide tips for the prevention, identification and ultimate extermination of the creepy crawlers.

    And if you’re not already creeped out by the idea of bed bugs, the video in the link above will pretty much seal the deal.
