Face Bedbugs head on with Policy

Bedbugs are becoming increasingly harder to control which is becoming a problem for apartment dwellers, group homes, hotels, and any other building that houses more than one person.
Developing a solid policy to deal with bed bugs is something that the government should start to think about implementing to help stop the spread of these bugs. Bed bugs are in fact an epidemic at this point and it should be treated as such. It is too easy for someone who contracts a bed bug problem in an apartment setting to leave that unit and move into another apartment building. These folks think they are escaping the problem, which is a blatant ignorance of the problem, when in fact they are spreading the problem to a new building. The government needs to go full force into an add campaign to educate the public and start to face this problem head on.
