No one wants to admit they are fighting bed bugs. Let's face it; there is still a stigma attached to these bugs. Even with all of the efforts that have been made to bring awareness to the fact that bed bugs are not associated with dirty people, this insect can't seem to shake this reputation. And, for seniors living in community housing, this is becoming a serious problem. Why? Because some seniors are embarrassed to report that they have these bugs. And, when bed bugs aren't reported, it allows them to spread from room to room, and from apartment to apartment. Here's what you need to know.
It's December here in Colorado, and there are a few things you can expect to happen this month. You can expect some dashing through the snow, a little walking in a winter wonderland, some carols being sung by a choir, and folks dressed up like Eskimos. That's why we have songs about these things. But, the song bed bugs love most this time of year is Perry Como singing, "There's no place like home for the holidays." And, since we would prefer you to, "find it hard to sleep tonight," because of the many reasons Nat King Cole sings about, and not because you have accidentally gotten bed bugs this year, we've put together this quick list of holiday bed bug tips.

It isn't an out-of-control epidemic, and many schools are setting up strict guidelines for dealing with this issue. But you should arm your kids with knowledge about bed bugs, just in case.
