Woman hospitalized after Kentucky house
she shares with her husband is overrun
by tens of thousands of bed bugs

Daily Mail [UK], by Nina Golgowski

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 2/10/2013 9:18:38 AM

An infestation of tens of thousands of bed bugs has hospitalized a Kentucky homeowner after being literally eaten alive for more than a year in one of the worst cases exterminators have ever seen. Walking around Caleb and Debra Goins´ home in Frankfort, thousands of bed bugs are easily seen scurrying across walls, lampshades and falling out from holes in the sofa. ´This is one of the worst. I´ve seen others that are in line with it but this is about as bad as it gets,´ Michael Potter, professor of entomology at the University of Kentucky told WTVQ.

One timely spray of DDT and it would never come to this. Thank the environmentalists - esp Jackie Kennedy.

Am I the only one who thought the headline made it sound like her being married and living with her husband was news?

The bed bugs run riot
In my old Kentucky home
They feed ´til we bleed
But I never saw no need
To call an exterminator some day
For my old Kentucky home far away
(Let´s all sing along!)

FTA: "The home is currently being monitored throughout their step-by-step extermination before the temperature inside will be raised to 140 degrees Fahrenheit before entirely sprayed next week."

Yes, and when you wash your sheets, the temperature of the water must also be at least 140 degrees to get rid of bedbugs. This should clue as to the effectiveness of washing your clothes in cold water. Not only do you not get rid of these bugs, but cold water also decreases the life of your washing machine. So much for those "energy saving" appliances such as washing machines. Warm-hot water keeps your machine CLEAN.

Having a son and his daughter living with me and the son´s travels require many nights in motels/hotels, etc. I regularly upon changing sheets on the beds get out my clothes steamer and steam mattresses and covers/comforters. This has kept us bug free. Besides, keeps the bedding smelling fresh. Don´t really know how hot the steamer gets, but high enough if you get your hand accidentally in the steam path, a hurting burn can result----rapidly learn to keep steam pointed in right direction.

There is only one way to get rid of them inexpensively- "Seven" dust. It´s made for use in the garden, but, it is the only "safe" product that will absolutely kill bed bugs. It stops them in their tracks, literally. If you dust your bed with it, you have to steam clean the bed afterward, but the bed bugs will be gone and their eggs.

Huumph, they were waiting for zippy to come and take care of the problem, but he was out golfing, or ordering drone strikes, or campaigning, or just riding around in the Beast...

Wanna bet they voted for him?

How about something new? In stories like this, always show party affiliation.

The ban on DDT has also caused the deaths of MILLIONS in Subsaharan Africans over the years since it´s use outlawed ............. but their lives don´t seem to matter to environmental fanatics.

Barry & his traveling demonrats next plan to stimulate the economy:

Hire thousands and thousands of goobermint workers at $80,000/year to go around the country and inspect houses for bed bugs. You will have no right to keep them out.

Remember Lovebug? This was the computer virus that swept through a young and fresh-faced internet in May 2000. Back then we were told it would do to cyberspace what the Black Death had done to Europe in the 14th century. We all got funny emails with “ILOVEYOU” attachments and when we tried to open them our computers exploded. Or rather they didn’t, though you wouldn’t have known that from the hysteria. Then along came MyDoom, Netsky, Witty and Melissa and, now, the deliciously named Heartbleed bug, which the US security expert Bruce Schneier has described as “catastrophic” and which has

Air pollution in China and other Asian countries is causing storms in North America to become stronger and changing weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere, a new Nasa study has claimed. [Snip] The effect was most pronounced during the winter, the team said. Lead author Yuan Wang, from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology, said: ´There appears to be little doubt that these particles from Asia affect storms sweeping across the Pacific and subsequently the weather patterns in North America and the rest of the world. ´The effects are quite dramatic.

   

 



 
Russia Spent More of Its Wealth
on Military than U.S. in 2013
Breitbart London [UK], by Nick Hallett    Original Article

According to figures compiled by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, Moscow spent 4.1 percent of its GDP on defence in 2013, an increase of 0.6 percent over the past 10 years. By contrast, the United States spent 3.8 percent of GDP on defence and Britain spent just 2.3 percent. The only neighbouring country that spends more is Azerbaijan, with 4.7 percent. Defence spending in Ukraine has also rocketed by 16 percent in the space of a year following the crisis in Crimea and continued tensions with Russia over the eastern provinces of the country. Russia´s military spending relative to GDP is now

Up to 11 people are believed dead after airborne Ukrainian troops seized an airport in the country´s rebellious east today in the first sign that a promised ´anti-terror operation´ had begun against pro-Russian separatists. Heavy gunfire was heard at Kramatorsk airport as Ukraine´s interim president announced that his forces had retaken the site from militants who been seizing control of cities since last week. Local media reported between four to 11 deaths in the attack, but there was no immediate confirmation of any casualties. Russia said it was ´deeply concerned´ over reports of casualties in the region today. It comes

Even by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s own lamentable standards, its new report--by Working Group III of the Fifth Assessment Report--makes no sense whatsoever. [Snip] Before the report´s formal release, US officials--who had seen an earlier draft--wrote to the United Nations demanding it be amended. "The discussion of the economic costs of mitigation is too narrow and does not incorporate co-benefits of action." Loosely translated this means: "If we admit how much we´re spending to such little purpose, the taxpaying public is going to kill us." So the report was duly amended to suggest that the benefits of wind turbines, solar panels,

Daphne du Maurier ´overlooked´

Her dark, macabre tales of Gothic romance and revenge have enthralled millions of readers and remain in print decades after her death. But for Daphne du Maurier, the wealth and worldwide fame she earned from novels such as Rebecca and Jamaica Inn were a poor substitute for the acclaim she craved from literary critics who dismissed her as a second-rank “romantic novelist”. Now her only son, Kits Browning, speaking for the first time ahead of the BBC’s three-part adaptation of Jamaica Inn, has criticised the “Hampstead literati” for overlooking one of the last century’s most original literary talents.

A total lunar eclipse will turn the moon a dark blood red tonight. Just after Mars reaches its closest point to earth in six years, a distance of a mere 57.4 million miles, a total lunar eclipse will spectacularly change the colour of the moon. But don´t get too twitchy with the curtains in the early hours--only people in north and south America will be able to see it with the naked eye. If you live in the UK, mainland Europe or most of the rest of the world by far your best chance of seeing the eclipse is right

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
