Don't Let The Bedbugs Bite!

We probably all know the expression: "Good night; don't let the bed bugs bite!" You may also suspect that these critters are long extinct and we don't have them any longer, but that is no longer true.

Not only are they more common then you would suspect, they have increased in number and bedbug infestations are on the rise. Over the past several month, they have turned in to a real plague and are quickly taking over many homes, offices, hotels and other accommodations.

These critters are not easily spotted, because they are about 3/16 of an inch long and do not just hide in the seams of your mattress, or the crevices of sheets and comforters, but also make themselves at home behind loose wallpaper, outlets and many other unsuspected places.

Their bite can cause itching and sometimes even red welts or swelling, but by the time the itching starts, it has already has been several days ago since these bugs drew blood. The bites will usually disappear by themselves within a few days, but they can get infected after scratching. Therefore, keep an eye on it.

Bed bugs are not a matter of hygiene; they will feel right at home anywhere. They are common all around the world, are masters in hiding out in luggage; hence they are easily brought home from vacation and summer camps.

You know if you are dealing with these critters when you check the sheets and find little red spots, or black stains on them. This may be an indication of these creepy crawlers. Bed bugs do not transmit diseases, they just are what they are: pesky, irritating bugs.

Don't mess around with chemicals and pesticides; the best and most effective way getting rid of these little blood suckers is by leaving it up to a professional and hiring an exterminator. They know exactly what to do, how to go about it and what to use.

The same goes for an illness; don't mess around with all kinds of medications; consult a doctor. The best and most effective way however is praying and giving it over to God; He knows exactly what to do, what is needed and will provide!

Psalm 41:3
The LORD will strengthen him on his bed of illness; You will sustain him on his sickbed.

Don't worry, you won't see it up close unless you have a magnifying glass. Grin.

There are superbugs in Indian hospitals. There are parasites in China farms. Both are discovered quite recently. They're fatal unless strong antibiotics are administered in time. Sounds scary. We must continue to trust our good Lord =)
