Bed bugs may not travel on humans but they will travel on human belongings like backbacks, clothing, radios etc. In an ever increasing mobile population and transient lifestyle (backpackers)especially from third worlds,a pandemic becomes more likely especially with pesticides like DDT unavailable. In Australia hotels,motels and backpackers are not publicising the problem due to financial concerns.

Actually, the bugs can be dormant to upwards of a year....

Actually, for a few of us the bites are excruciatingly itchy and burning. My parents refused to deal with their bedbug problem because "when they bite, there's no pain," - at least for them. Not so for me. Last night I woke up with a burning spot on my calf, threw up the blanket and there was a devilish little creature swollen with blood. I killed it, stripped the bed, packed everything in plastic (washing the sheet apparently gets rid of the bugs)-- and now I have to extirminate my laptop, which must have been infested when I visited my parents the night before. This is no joke. I pray that my quick response will get rid of the little bastards, and that they didn't have the chance to make it to my mattress. Now I have to spend about a thousand dollars to get my parents' house extirminated because they refused to deal with it when it was first discovered.

“I’m surprised,” Hynes said. “If they had cleaned their linens and taken proper precautions, none of this would have happened.”

-I almost wish bedbugs upon this person but I cannot stoop that low. She obviously knows nothing about bedbugs nor the cause of an initial infestaton.

Um... and you do?

I wash my linene at least weekly, sometimes more often, but my whole building is infested, all the neighbors complaining, now we have them too. they can travel, apparently up to 100 yards looking for food, hide in cracks in the walls, etc. My husband wakes up every morning with bites. they stay away from me though. I wake upoften and try to catch hem while they are out. and kill them when I find them, maybe 1-2 a night.
