I've had bedbugs from a new neighbor, and the slumlord refused to do anything.

I feel this dude's PTSD and anger. 5 years later, and a light breeze in the house tickling an arm or leg hair makes me hafta pull the sheets back or flip the chair to check seams for castings, molts, or eggs.

Old white man is an annoying jackass, so much so that basically everyone including his appointed attorneys just wants him to go the fark away.

Release some bedbugs at city hall: charged with assault and obstructing government obstruction

Show up maskless and coughing all over everyone at a school board meeting: get that man a Senate seat!

You're not alone.

We went through one round of bed bugs and swore we'd never encounter them again.

Queue the shiatty neighbours and their dumpster furniture and the 2nd time in 7 years. Luckily, this time, we knew where they were coming in, taped up the air duct and diatomaceous'd the bedposts, and they never made it past one attack on me.

The previous time, though? My wife was covered in sores for a week. They burnt for weeks afterwards.

We're in seperated housing now, but we're still on guard.

I honestly don't blame the dude, and I don't think he should plead guilty. I think he should get his jury trial and all facts presented, because having 100+ bedbugs in a cup means there is a problem somewhere, and that's probably with incompetent/inadaquate/corrupt code inspectors

Is this guy an ass? Yes. Is it wrong to let a landlord keep a bedbug-infested place? Also yes.

Two wrongs = bedbugs in city hall

Dude, when my nieces and nephews are over for holidays, I gotta open windows and screen doors when crayons come out. That warm crayon wax smell when you smash a bedbug...

I guess living in a bedbug infested boarding house tends to make a person grumpy.

Ugh... tbis article and thread are giving me flashbacks to the great bedbug battle of 2018...

Apparently the hotel I stayed in for work had them and I brought them home in my suitcase...


Fought them for about 8 months, **still** get creeped out in the middle of the night and have to get up and check everything.

TFA: Manning's court case has dragged on for four years, and he has had at least five lawyers assigned to him, only to have them withdraw from his case, most of them citing an inability to communicate effectively with Manning.

He's going to drag it out until he's dead and doesn't have to pay.

I promise you this defense tactic doesn't work if you're not White.

Maybe someone else nailed it on the head. We... The US need to bring back DDT. It's used all over the world with no problems. What we did was if 10 is good, let's do 100. Welcome to the US. I'm tired of barking at the moon so I go and leave it to someone who can type these little keyboards. Call me

Wife went to a conference in 2019 and brought them home. On the last day everyone brought their luggage and stored it together. She thinks that's where they came from.
I thought I was mosquito food until I found one crawling on my body. Wasted no time with the sprays, powder and enclosing my mattress.
Glad I caught them early. The thought of them still makes my skin crawl

When I traveled for work I'd leave my luggage in the trunk out in the sun for a few days to cook the farkers.

Apparently heat is about the only thing guaranteed to kill them.

Also freezing, according to information..  hvac tech and general repairs guy, and apparently some got on me at a rental property, and got brought home... they are a real biatch to get rid of.  Have to be really careful using chemicals due to my furkids..

Oh man I'm so sorry, I know what you mean! Never thought of that!

We had a snap of -40 and thats when they started up again for us. They'll die from the cold, but they'll make their way inside first.

I actually had some sympathy for him, until this: Manning said he later realized he had dumped the bedbugs at the wrong city department

I mean, if you're going to protest something, be sure you're protesting the people who actually screwed you, not innocent bystanders.

Manning said he later realized he had dumped the bedbugs at the wrong city department - the general assistance office - after his request for financial assistance was rejected.

He's only sorry that he dumped them at the wrong office!
