Thanks for bleeding

 

We have all been bitten by a bug or two at one point or another in our lives, and most of us had the marks to prove it. As Iowans, we are subjected to the bites of mosquitoes, flies and even spiders. But if there's one place where we should feel safe from exposure to these insects, it should be our beds. Beneath our sheets, though, these critters are causing quite a stir, especially here in the metro. What were first considered a major nuisance have become a serious threat to some and strange, yet welcomed, bedfellows to others.

Rumors have been circulating about the severity of bed bugs in various residential and commercial buildings for several months, but not until now have the horrific details surrounding those involved been uncovered. We are uncomfortably pleased to bring you the details in our cover story this first week of April.

As always, thanks for bleeding… I mean reading. APRIL FOOLS
