Bed bugs

    Hope this story doesn’t make your skin crawl too much.

    BedBug Central, an information service on prevention and health risks associated with bed bugs, is now accepting applicants for “free bed bug service” for those in need.  In other words, free exterminations for those who can’t afford them.

    The group will hold its Taking the Bite Out of the Holidays event between December 4 and 11.

    Here’s Marty Moss-Coane’s interview on the nation’s rising bed bug epidemic.
