Only two miles away from downtown Spokane valley, Shelley Lake is a great place to catch that monstrous fish. Nearby hotels and restaurants, provide everything else an angler needs. A massive salmon would be a great catch, yet there is another monster you don’t want to take home. Attracted to carbon dioxide, they crawl out of dark hiding places. They feed on blood… human blood… at night while you sleep. Throughout Washington and America, bedbugs are on the rise.
Their bites resemble angry red welts. Be careful, there are numerous insects that leave the same type of mark. Another way you can tell is by looking for reddish brown spots within you sheets. Bedbugs defecate while they feast, leaving stains. As the infestation grows, the number of bites and spots will increase.
Unlike other insects, bedbugs reproduce rather slowly. That’s not say much though. The numbers suggest exponential population growth. A female will lay about 1 egg per day and up to 500 eggs in her lifetime. After hatching, each nymph will take about 6 weeks to become an adult capable of reproduction. In 6 months one bed bug will become a population in the tens of thousands. Eggs are small and difficult to see; often bites go unnoticed until the vampires are established.
Luggage is a favorite. Suitcases are dark and usually left near the bed. After feeding, bedbugs find places to hide. If your bag is close to the bed you’ll bring the monsters home. They’ll hitch a ride from your business trip, hotel stay or arrive with your friends when they come to spend the night.
