Bedbugs crawl way into posh suburbs (MSM admits bedbugs arrived in U.S. on backs of illegal aliens!)

(snip)

The tiny, reddish-brown parasites, which live on warm human blood, were once nearly extinct.

But thanks to a growing resistance to pesticides, and an increasingly mobile human population, they’ve had a resurgence since the mid-1990s.

For years, they’ve been enjoying city life, crawling out at night from all sorts of mattresses to feed.

The difference now, exterminators said, is they’ve made sizable inroads into suburbia.

(snip)

In the past decade, most urban-dwelling bedbugs arrived on the backs of roaming college students or migrant workers from South and Central America.

Once they settle and mate, their offspring will eventually set off in search of new blood, often traveling along cozy apartment walls and cushioned subway seats.

But these days, Joe Giambarresi of Security Pest Elimination said he’s been getting calls from exclusive suburbs, too.

Check this one out.

Thanks for nothing, McCain, Bush, Kennedy, et al!

Bedbugs lay around and suck the blood from their hosts. Hmmm, maybe there is a “larger” lesson here.

Are bedbugs the reason for this?

Not only are they bringing bed bugs, but there is a resurgence of diseases as well, particularly whopping cough (pertussis), a deadly disease for infants and toddlers, and TB is another disease that's spreading.

What's the difference between a bedbug and a congressman?

Yeah, I don't know, either.

Add in bedbugs, whooping cough, increased drug resistant TB, and a host of other plagues we thought we had rid ourselves of.

Wow. And we are the bad guys from wanting the borders closed? The ruling class have destroyed America and made it an unsafe third world cesspool.

Parasites of all kinds invading America these days.

Diversity - and Bedbugs - is our strength.

Family Values - and Bedbugs - don't stop at the Rio Grande.

Illegals are only bringing Bedbugs into America because lazy Americans refuse to do it.

Illegals - and Bedbugs - are all Gods children.

Excuse me, but I have this itch.

Must be because of where I slept.

Bedbugs stop sucking after the host has died.

A friend on mine lives in a condo complex outside Vail, Co. For several years one of the buildings has been a rotating door for “wetbacks”. (he said it wasn't as bad last year) The illegal immigrant building got infested and the entire complex had to be fumigated. They have been “bombing” ALL the condos every 6 months for three years. Last week they announced that the infestation had been contained into one building. Which one? You guessed it!

Another article in FR today links the DDT ban to the spread of bedbugs.

(Not to mention the death of an extra hundred million Africans from malaria.)

People think of getting these things from hotel beds, but they can be picked up at places like movie theaters, public bathrooms, airplanes, trains, taxis, or other public places as well.

No, just not in Western civ, always in third world countries.

Your headline is pretty deceiving. The Herald is the conservative Boston paper. The Globe is the liberal one and it hasn’t admitted anything of the sort.

Saw that recently on FOX. Pretty shocking because that’s a particularly nasty third world disease.

Actually, they probably arrived with well-heeled European and ME tourists, because there certainly aren’t any migrant workers staying at most of the places where there have been bedbug problems.

However that may be, the reason for the surge in bedbugs is that the only thing that is effective against them is DDT, and we refuse to use it. One of the papers in New York admitted that this morning. Maybe there’s a little common sense breaking out? Not that such a thing as common sense would convince us to go back to the use of DDT. So I guess we just have to settle down a become more like the Third World that Obama holds out as a model.

There is a certain mattress company we refer to as the Bed Bug Delivery Van. They have the used mattresses in the same van with the new ones.

A NYC City Council member has advised people not to sit on wooden benches. The benches are all up and down the Broadway mall (the wide divider of Broadway that begins at around 60th Street) and are frequented by the homeless and residents of the SROs.

Yep. Occasionally the MSM actually prints the truth.
I suspect it only happens when the senior editors have over-done
booze/drugs.
Or perhaps they are on their lenghty August vacations.

The potential for these things to transmit is endless. Perhaps we should all be wearing flea collars if they
even work on these bugs.

And let's not forget TB and other dangerous and filthy sicknesses they bring with them. . .they do not inoculate, vaccinate. . .they are disease factories.

Roaming college students. . bah. . .college students have been roaming for decades and decades and this was never a problem before.

“What’s the difference between a bedbug and a congressman?”

Bedbugs only suck your blood at night and congressmen are quite happy sucking your blood 24/7. Just a thought

DDT is harmful to bedbugs.

Time Magazine
Science: Homemade DDT
Monday, Aug. 06, 1945

Many a civilian would give red points to get his hands on a little DDT, the Army’s high-priority insecticide. Recently citizens of Media and Swarthmore, Philadelphia suburbs, were astonished: two of the towns’ hardware stores offered bottles of DDT for sale across the open counter. The solution was just right for killing flies and mosquitoes. The stores did a land-office business at $1 per pint. Then WPB heard about it and asked grimly: where did the stuff come from?

The answer: a Swarthmore chemist named Walter Steuber (of Houdry Process Corp.) had decided that the easiest way to get DDT was to make it himself. He was turning it out by the gallon in his cellar. Said Steuber: any competent chemist can figure out the formula and make DDT out of non-priority materials. The ingredients are: chloral hydrate (better known as “Mickey Finn”), monochlor benzine, and concentrated sulfuric acid.

WPB solemnly ruled: “Anybody can make DDT, provided he uses non-priority materials or materials for which he has obtained a priority rating. But you can’t sell it except for military or experimental purposes.”

Last week, as a result of Steuber’s enterprise, WPB suddenly changed its mind. Beginning this month, it announced, regular manufacturers will be allowed to sell limited supplies of DDT to civilians, manufacturers producing less than 1,000 lbs. weekly may sell their product to anyone they choose.
