While San Francisco hasn't suffered the staggering bedbug infestation that's currently taking New York City by storm (reports of the little bastards have gone from zilch in 2002 to 4,638 in 2006), the noctural blood-suckers still show up at various hotels, hostels and private residences in the Bay Area. And they're a bitch to get rid of, which is why The Bedbug Registry is a great way to steer well clear of infestations and give yourself the heebie-jeebies in the process. Now for some fun bedbug facts!
I bet you're already feeling a little itchy just thinking about it, aren't you?
