Don't let the bed bugs bite!

Parents have been saying this for years, but recently these critters have become more than a bedtime ruse. Recent cases of infestations have surfaced and people have had to rid themselves of these unwanted guests.

Shelly Buchan, Officer of Health for the Central Region, notes these critters primarily travel on luggage and clothing, adding if you have recently traveled to take extra precaution when unpacking.


Bed bugs are excellent hiders and are usually hard to detect once they have entered your home. She adds if its too late and you do notice them in your home, it is best to call the professionals to get rid of them.
