Government Study: Beware of bed bug pesticides

The bed bug outbreaks of the past two years caused many victims to overdo it with powerful sprays and bug bombs.

A government study found misuse of pesticides has caused 80 illnesses and one death. Sickness included headaches, nausea, and vomiting.

The lone death was a 65-year-old woman who set off too many bug bombs.

You should read labels carefully or use a pest control company to get rid of bed bugs.
