“Don’t let the bed bugs bite.” It’s not just a metaphorical cliché. Really, your invaluable bed mattress might be actually tainted with these horrible, parasitic insects. You won’t usually see them because they are very small. They are not choosy; whether it be a five-star hotel, one-star inn, or your house’s seat cushions, headboards, mattress or lamps, they can just lay whitish eggs everywhere as they feed on your blood. They are great hitchhikers because although they don’t have wings, they use their six legs to move from your luggage, furniture, clothes, etc. Their bites are not painful but are extremely itchy, especially when you start scratching them.
