    Flea Guns

    Well, at least we know what kind of gun you can use to protect yourself from these viscious animals -- one of those 1/2 mm bore miniature Colt Python revolvers that actually shoots a bullet the size of a grain of rice. Some people carry "mouseguns" as a back up / deep cover weapon, but the gun I'm thinking of would be better suited for varmints in the flea/ gnat / mosquito/ bedbug size range.

    I stay in a lot of hotels. I spend 5 to 10 mins inspecting beds, carpet, and bathroom for bedbugs. Yet one more reason to get a local flying job in ATL.

    Can you see them? I thought I read an article that they do not come out until you are asleep . . .

    That's correct, but they leave behind evidence of their "feast." In moderate to severe infestations, you only need to look at the mattresses. You will find a lot of little dark colored spots (blood and bedbug poop stains). You will also find pieces and parts of their bodies in the folds of the mattress and around the edges (seams).

    Here's an article FYI:
