Bed Bugs in Amarillo

AMARILLO, TEXAS - We've all heard the phrase "don't let the bed bugs bite.," but now more than ever before, there's a reason to take that warning seriously. The national bed bug breakout has hit Amarillo.

10 years ago, only about a quarter of the nation's exterminators reported 'ever' seeing a bed bug. today it's 95 percent -- including many on the High Plains. Bedbugregistry.com lists three Amarillo hotels as having bed bugs, and there have been several cases confirmed at local charity offices.

If you think you might have bugs, experts say the best thing to do is check the seems of your mattress for the creatures or their eggs. Also look for red or brown spots - if you find something call a professional for help and wash all of your blankets in hot water as soon as possible.
