We had a bedbug scare recently; my downstairs neighbor and tenant found a bedbug in a library book. It’s been a couple of months at this point and neither we nor they have found any of the little blood-sucking fiends from hell.

I mentioned that to one of my friends, whose library branch has had bedbug issues. “I guess it’s time for me to start baking my library books again,” she said.

15 minutes at 200F is her recipe.

I am now getting itchy just thinking about it.

Bedbugs are demons from hell and must be treated accordingly.

I hope they do an investigation,
“And where were you before here!?”
“You got a coffee at Starbucks!?”
“Did you sit at a table…or take out!?”
“…by the way…
did you drive or take public transportation!?”
“Say what? The subway!?”
Omg…we now have to declare
Genuine Public Health Emergency.

The world is his oyster, or bed bug, which ever…

Bedbugs or non drug resistant gonorhhea? I’ll take the gonnorhea, any day of the week.

Was it in KC? They had a branch closed down as they sterilized all their books.

Lots of libraries have that problem. (Makes sense if people read books in bed before going to sleep.)

Freezing is also supposed to work.

Just FYI… Bedbugs can last more than 6 months in a freezer. They also require 1 hour in the oven at above 60C (don’t know what that is in F). 15 minutes won’t kill the eggs. I’ve had bedbugs many many times due to excessive travelling in places they love and ended up reading a lot about how to get rid of them, what their life-cycle is like, where they originated, why they’ve come back, etc. etc. I know more about bed bugs than I really care to.
