Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite. I used to say that all the time without thinking about it. Until the day I thought I had bed bugs. Then I became obsessed.
Seriously, I’d wake up in the middle of the night, throw the covers off and scan the bed for bugs. Each morning I’d make my husband check my back and legs out for bites. Imagine – sleeping soundly, quietly and your crazed wife turns the light on jumps out of bed, taking the covers. He wasn’t happy with me.
Do you know how hard bed bugs are to fight? You can’t kill them easily. I did all this research and got myself all twisted up over nothing. Turns out we didn’t have bed bugs, we had gnats. Gnats that bite. I’ve never been attacked by biting gnats before.
But, I did find, in all my wild eyed searching, a good, green product for ridding one’s life of bed bugs called Stop Bugging Me. You can spray all sorts of surfaces AND use their laundry additive when you’re doing clothes…because those suckers, they attach themselves to anything, from anywhere. (Don’t I sound a little obsessed still?)
Since I don’t have bed bugs I don’t need this. Yet. But you know those dreaded things are lurking, waiting to infest my house (and yours) any day now. Truly, they are everywhere.
So get prepared!
