Does the simple idea of bed bugs freak you out?
I, for one, have been uber jumpy the last year or so at the idea of them. Just the thought of them makes my skin crawl. I have become obsessed when traveling and staying at hotels to check thoroughly for them before even bringing my bags into the room.
Even if I spot a speck on the wall in my apartment I have to investigate it under an eye-loop to insure it's not one.
The epidemic of these nasty critters is on the rise everywhere. After seeing pics of their carnage and reading how nasty they can be and how difficult it is to rid a dwelling of them, I am a bit freaked out by the thought.
I did have a laugh the other day after I froze when spotting something that looked like a bed bug in the kitchen sink. Upon inspection I found it to only be a toasted sesame seed! At first I lost my breath and my blood ran cold. My level of relief upon discovering it was a seed was also breath-taking.
Dang-it! I have found scorpions, spiders, and the works in previous apartments but was not nearly affected by them as I would be upon discovering a bed bug.
