I was reading a library book when a bug crawled out. It was paper thin, and was moving incredibly slowly. My partner captured it and killed it, and then put it between two pieces of tape. We've looked online and, yep, probably a bedbug. What do we do now? Watchful vigilance? Fumigate our entire apartment (which may not be affordable at this time)? Somewhere in between? Details inside, if you want more... [more inside]

I just had a run-in at work with two adult bed bugs. What do I need to do before I go home (heck, before I get in my car) to ensure they don't infest my stuff? [more inside]

Bedbugs in London! Can anyone recommend a decent exterminator?
After doing some research I found out that the service my council provides is for 1 treatment only. Most people recommend 2 treatments.
This has left my doubting the service provided by the council
How do I separate the cowboys from the pro's?

IdentifyThisBugFilter: A friend of mine who lives in Astoria (infamous for being in bedbug central) got a little freaked out after finding this bug in her bed. After lots of Googling, I determined that it's not a bedbug, but we'd appreciate any help in identifying this non-bedbug bug. [more inside]
