Low tech bed bug detector.

Postby jimshu » Tue Dec 29, 2009 12:38 am

Hey guys, we just might need to know about this...http://www.wired.com/wiredscience/2009/ ... -detector/
I remember one of our travelling companions on a tour of India some years ago, with a tell tale line of welts up one arm.Not very happy with me when in response to his asking what I thought they were, I replied possibly bed bugs.
I remember a few hotels in Sydney being reported with infestation problems a while ago.
But have we arrived home, and found a few months later, we've got to get the exterminators in?

I had a lot of little bites on my lower back after leaving Cusco ... I think they were some kind of mites living in heavy wool "horse" blankets on the beds .....
