Bed bugs are one of CDNews’ worst fears. We drive other members of the family crazy when we travel, with thorough examinations of mattresses and pillows for signs of possible infestations.
But now it appears that they’re getting closer to home. Our friends at The SunBreak reported today that a King County official said that bed bugs are “out there” and “doing well” here in Seattle. And they provide a link to BedBugRegistry.com that shows three reported infestations here in the Central District, all in multi-unit apartments:
- 1100 block of 17th Avenue – One unit with bed bugs
- 1500 block of 17th Avenue – At least two apartments in 144-unit HUD building infested
- 100 block of 21st Avenue East – Bed bugs in one unit in a 4-unit apartment building
We’re getting itchy just thinking about it.
One saving grace for CDNews is that we’re in a single family residence and thus have some natural barrier if they continue to spread. But don’t be offended if you ever come over and we ask you to leave your bags outside and put on a moon suit before entering CDNews World HQ.
