Bed Bugs: A Story

FW_MOLLS3.jpg

Molly McAleer wrote a sensational piece for The Awl documenting her ongoing skirmishes against the bed bugs that have infested her LA apartment. It is terrifying, in that you-know-this-could've-been-you kind of way.

Treatment for my bites has been the easiest part. At first they were shiny little red dots. It looked like my stomach had baby acne. The itching only lasted for a couple of days and was nowhere near as severe as mosquito bites. I’ve gone through a couple boxes of Benadryl to decrease the inflammation. I’ve also been using it as a light sleep aid because I’ll lie awake all night in fear if I don’t. I’ve also sunk a TimeWarner bill's worth of cash into hydrocortisone, which I use as a moisturizer when I get out of the shower. At the rate they are fading, I will not be going to any pool parties this summer. There was nothing in that Will Smith and Jazzy Jeff song about kickin’ it with a girl who had oblong hot dog-colored marks all over her body, correct?

Back here in Bklyn, I have a feeling our Pool Parties might have played host to a bed bug or three.

I have a sudden fear of bed bugs from stories and pictures.... It's said they are tiny and can travel with u anywere?!?!?

Bed bug bites are annoying. Having bed bugs is traumatic. Molly is courageous to put her bed bug problem out there. You can find videos about how to inspect your own home for bed bugs at www.bedbugsnorthwest.com. It took 6 months to get them out of my own home.

Hmmmm. I had bedbugs. The bites were ten times itchiest to me than mosquito bites have ever been. I caught one of the bugs ona piece of cellophane tape, brought it to my landlord, and they brought in an exterminator who got every last one of 'em. I think I discovered mine real quick and took action lightnin' fast, before reaching infestation levels.
