Be aware of bed bugs as you travel – Norfolk Daily News

NORFOLK - As we get closer to the holidays, more and more people travel resulting in the possibility of picking up bed bugs.

University of Nebraska Extension Educator for Madison, Pierce, and Antelope Counties Wayne Ohnesorg says bed bugs have become a main concern across the country in the past decade.

Ohnesorg says he hears a lot of instances of travelers coming upon bed bugs in hotels.

He says you should always check the mattress right away.

Ohnesorg says look for reddish stains on bed sheets caused by bed bugs being crushed, and the fecal matter of the bug, which is a dark spot about the size of a pinhead.

He says also never unpack your luggage into the drawers in the room.

The 10 Best Bed Bug Exterminators in Washington, PA 2020

If you are concerned you have a bed bug infestation, look for physical signs of their presence. Bed bugs love to hide in small, dark spaces and typically come out to feed (generally on human blood) after dark although they will come out in daylight if hungry enough. The Environmental Protection Agency states that indications of an infestation can include seeing shed exoskeletons of bed bugs, rusty spots on your bedding (which are either bug droppings or bloodstains), live bed bugs, bed bug egg casings, a sweet and musty odor (if the infestation is severe), and evidence of bites on your skin.

To spot bed bugs, look in and along mattress seams and bedding, in curtain and furniture folds, inside cracks or crevices in the walls, behind picture frames and mirrors, under loose wallpaper seams, on recently used luggage or backpacks, inside electronics, and inside clothing or cluttered areas such as closets. If you see signs of bed bugs, be careful not to disturb them too much as you dont want them scattering to other parts of your house.

Lost in Suburbia classic column: The mother of all vampire stories – Washington Times-Reporter

Columns share an authors personal perspective. *****

Ive been bitten by a vampire.

Okay, not really. But it certainly looks that way. When I woke up one morning, I had two red spots on my neck, about eyeteeth apart in width. This is not typically the place where I get pimples, nor was it likely that they were mosquito bites because I had slathered myself in Deet the night before. Ruling out Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (havent been there), Chicken Pox (had them already), and bed bugs (I looked under the mattress), the only logical explanation for the mystery bites, I decided, was a vampire.

I think a vampire got into the house last night, I told my husband.

Nah. I locked all the doors before we went to bed, he replied definitively. After years of living with me, he was used to hearing me blurt out bizarre statements.

Look at my neck, I said tilting my chin up. Doesnt this look like a vampire bit me?

Yes, he said. And went back to reading his email.

I pouted for a minute. So what do you think? I asked.

I think you will probably turn into a vampire and I should get some garlic to hang around my neck so you dont bite me next.

I snorted at him and left the room to find a more willing accomplice.

First I showed the spots to my daughter. She agreed that they looked like vampire bites and wanted to know if I could introduce her to Robert Pattinson.

Then I showed the spots to my son. He agreed they looked like vampire bites, but informed me that I wasnt cool because vampires are out and zombies are in.

Finally I showed the spots to the dog. He didnt have an opinion either way but he did lick my neck.

Thinking about it, I realized that if it was a vampire bite, it was going to present something of a problem for me. First of all, vampires like blood and I like my meat well done. Then of course, vampires are nocturnal and Im more of a morning person. Lastly, vampires like to sleep in coffins and I really prefer my Tempur-pedic bed.

On the plus side, vampires live forever ... but that means an eternity of doing laundry, making dinners and picking up drycleaning. Also, that is a really long time to have to obsess about my cellulite and bathing suit season.

Still, I was happy at least that I was possibly going to become a vampire and not a werewolf, because I already have hair removal issues, and the idea of having to wax nightly was a bummer. Fortunately, after two days, the spots disappeared, and I didnt seem to be showing any symptoms of becoming undead, so I decided they were probably pimples after all. But the next night, I decided to take some precautions anyway.

Hey mom, whens dinner? asked my son.

In about 10 minutes.

Something smells good, he inhaled. What are you making?

Garlic bread. This is a repeated Lost in Suburbia column, which has appeared in GateHouse Media newspapers since 2008. As Tracy Beckermans main column is shifting focus - her kids are grown and she has moved back to the city - we are rerunning her earlier work for readers who may have missed these the first time around.

NBA and WNBA players face realities of restarting seasons in Florida ‘bubbles’ – Brinkwire

Thecoronavirus-resistant bubbles being used to restart the NBA and WNBA seasons in Florida are already coming under fire, as the top mens basketball players complain about airline food service at Disney World while their female counterparts have to contend with bed bugs, worms, and mice on the other side of the state.

No way Bron eating this LOL, Isaiah Thomas, LeBron Jamess former teammate, wrote on Twitter.

Thomas, a free agent who most recently played for the Washington Wizards, was responding to an underwhelming picture of Denver Nuggets guard Troy Danielss dinner on Tuesday evening.

Daniels posted two photos on social media, which included one shot of a red, plastic bag of food placed outside his hotel room on a brown cafeteria tray. A card emblazoned with the NBA logo described a respectable meal that included pasta with meatless Bolognese sauce and roasted summer vegetables.

However, the contents of the bag were less appetizing, and had a slight resemblance to airline food, as many social media commenters pointed out. Others likened the meal to the cheese sandwiches given to customers at Fyre Fest, the 2017 music festival that famously failed to deliver any of the luxurious amenities promised to concertgoers.

The NBA season is set to restart July 30 with a 22-team tournament at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Campus at Disney World in Orlando, with scrimmages slated to begin July 22. Player movement is heavily restricted at Disney, where players will be required to maintain social distancing and undergo regular testing while remaining cut off from the rest of society.

There is a 24-hour concierge service and teams have Disney chefs and cooks to available to create menus for teams, but all of that may not be operational just yet.

The NBA released a statement Wednesday, emphasizing that there is never a shortage of food options [and] players can always request additional food by speaking with their team nutritionists.

Meanwhile, the WNBA players are facing worms, mouse traps and bed bugs over at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Players are currently staying at the academys lodge, which has disappointed to say the least.

Players circulated images upon arriving at their temporary living conditions on Monday. More information emerged Tuesday, and NBA players such as Damian Lillard and Nassir Little spoke out against the unsanitary scenes depicted in the pictures.

One photo showed a worm on the floor of a hotel room, while another showed a mouse trap in the laundry room. Deadspin reported Tuesday that two teams needed to change rooms because of an infestation of bed bugs, quoting a source saying the league is working to fix some issues.

Smfh I hope this is fake, Lillard wrote on Twitter.

Little added: Bruh there is no way. That aint okay.

Later Seattle Storm star Breanna Stewart posted pictures of what she claimed were bed bugs under another players mattress.

Bleacher Report reported Tuesday that a survey was sent to people in lodge housing, and that IMG Academy executives were working to address the problems.

The WNBA is planning to play a 22-game season before a traditional playoff, all held at the IMG Academy bubble.

The NBA and WNBA seasons are up against a surge of coronavirus cases in the state of Florida, which faces an impending shortage of intensive care unit hospital beds.

Florida has endured 214,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus with 3,840 deaths, according to The New York Times.

More than four dozen hospitals across 25 of 67 Florida counties reported their intensive care units had reached full capacity, according to the states Agency for Health Care Administration. Only 17 percent of the total 6,010 adult ICU beds statewide were available on Tuesday, down from 20 percent three days earlier.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver on Tuesday voiced concern that a significant spread of the coronavirus could potentially expose a hole in our bubble and shut down the season a second time.

Silver made the comments during Fortunes virtual Brainstorm Health conference.

Silver expects that players will test positive for the coronavirus but said hes not sure yet what the leagues threshold will be for having to shut down the season at Disney World.

Certainly, if we had any sort of a significant spread at all within our campus, we would be shut down again, Silver said. It would be concerning if once [the players] sit through our quarantine period, and then were to test positive, we would know that, in essence, theres a hole in our bubble.

That our campus is not working in some way.

We can analyze the virus itself and try to track whether, if theres more than one case, if its in essence the same virus, the same genetic variation of the virus that has passed from one player to another, Silver said.

Silver said hes confident enough in the leagues protocols that he plans to attend after being tested himself, but added he will stay far away from players.

This should work, he said. But again, this virus has humbled many, so I am not going to express any higher level of confidence than we are following the protocols and we hope it works as we designed it.

Meanwhile a fourth Brooklyn Nets player, forward Taurean Prince, has tested positive for COVID-19 and will sit out the NBAs restart later this month near Orlando, ESPN reported Tuesday.

The Nets were already without center DeAndre Jordan, guard Spencer Dinwiddie and forward Wilson Chandler, who opted out after positive tests. Forward Kevin Durant (torn Achilles) and guard Kyrie Irving (shoulder) were never expected to play as they continue to recovery from surgeries.

According to ESPN, the Nets left for Florida on Tuesday evening.

Mike Thibault has a different approach to the WNBA bubble’s living conditions –

Mystics coach Mike Thibault has a different approach to the WNBA bubble's living conditions

Washington Mystics head coach Mike Thibault is an old-fashioned type of person. He likes his dad jokes, appreciates the simple things in life and most certainly is not going to complain about the lack of amenities within the WNBA's bubble on social media.

As WNBA athletes have begun theirbubble quarantine down in Bradenton, Fla, several players have expressed their disdain for some of their living conditions.

Images and videos have scattered Twitter and Instagram of the player's laundry roomsfiled with mouse traps, worms on the floor of some rooms, and their inadequatemeals. The Mystics' own Tianna Hawkins posted about her shower being backed up on her IG story. While these are all less than ideal, Thibault has a different approach on how to get some changes.

"I find it to kind of be a generational difference," Thibault, 69,told the media via Zoom. "My first instinct if something isn't right, is to try to go fix it. Make a call, go do something. See if you know I can switch rooms...

"My first instinct when I have a problem is not to tweetthe world and tell them everybody about it because I'd rather problem solve."

Certainly, there have been issues within the bubble. That's not just in the WNBA, but some MLS and NBA players have voiced their frustrations - primarily with their food options - once they reached their own respectivecampus in Florida.


But Thibault wants there to be some restraint on the complaints and coverage. He says there are no bed bugs, as reported by Deadspin,and the league is moving quickly to fix some of the problems addressed by the players.

Not only does he think most of these issueswill be corrected, but once the players get on the court things will change.

"Nothing's going to be ideal in quarantine, I mean our players really haven't had a chance to go and see the campus much and do everything else because they've basically been in their rooms and you know that's not fun for anybody to be cooped up but it's part of a show that everybody's safe," Thibault said.

Thursdayafternoon is the first opportunity for some WNBA players to leave their rooms. All individuals entering the bubble must quarantinefor four to seven days before stepping foot on campus. Once quarantines are done, training camp for each teamwill begin.

"I think that you'll see as we get into practices and people get out about a little bit more on campus. That feeling of being cooped up will go away. You know it'sa different environment. Nobody said this was going to be ideal and we certainly don't have the same amenities that maybe the NBA does but you know we also don't have that same kind of money coming into that helps pay for that so we're in a nice place."

Elena Delle Donne and Tina Charles did not travel to Bradenton, Fla with the rest of the Washington Mystics to begin a quarantine for the WNBA bubble, the team announced on Wednesday.

Instead, the two have entered the WNBA's player evaluation protocolfrom a panel of independent doctors to see if they can be medically excused for the 2020 season.

Washington Mystics players Tina Charles and Elena Delle Donne have entered the WNBA player medical evaluation protocol. The players did not travel with the team to Bradenton, Florida. An update on their status will be given when their evaluations are finalized.

The protocol is in place to allow players who are at high-risk for the coronavirus to opt-out for the year and still receive their full salary. Players can choose to opt-out for non-medical reasons but will not receive pay.


Delle Donne has Lyme's disease, which puts her at greater risk of serious complications with the virus. She and Charles awaitdecisions from the panel, along with several other WNBA stars according to the Associated Press.

If the two aremedically excused, the team will be without four of their biggest stars in an attempt at a repeat bid. Natasha Cloud and LaToya Sanders both opted-out of the season last month. Losing last year's MVP in Delle Donne and big offseason acquisition Charles definitely hinders the ability of the team for the 2020 season.

As WNBA teams and players make their way down to Florida to play theentire 2020 season at IMG Academy, many were greeted with ugly living conditions.

The bubble is designed to keep players safe and healthy while the season begins, but so far it looks to be doing the opposite. One source told Deadspin that bed bugs have been found in the rooms of two teams, forcing them to move. Additionally, the source explained that the meals were so unappetizing that some players refused to eat them.


Mystics star Elena Delle Donne took to Twitter to voice her opinion on the matter. Like many others, she was incredibly disgusted with the situation.

Delle Donne, meanwhile, has not announcedwhether or not she is playing this season. The team arrived at the bubble on Monday but it is unclear if the reigning WNBA MVP was there too.

Besides the source, video evidence of the living quarters has surfaced, and it makes things look even worse. A viral thread on Twitter shows a beaten-down, dirtylaundry room with mouse traps, a carpet that has worms in it and a boxed meal that gives the MLS sandwich situation a run for its money.

Las Vegas Aces star A'ja Wilson confirmed that those videos do accurately depict the current living situation for the players.

Breanna Stewart also shared an Instagram story that showed bed bug traps under a bed.

Lexie Brown of Minnesota Lynx chimed in as well but shared a different opinion than others. While she agrees the conditions are wrong and need to be fixed, she wanted the public to know that now every team has dealt with the unsanitary quarters.

The teams are currently in a quarantine period upon arrival, meaning they must stay in the room that features poor conditions as the league works to make changes. The bubble experiment is something many leagues, including the NBA, are working throughin the coming months. The beginning of the WNBA's time in Florida reveals more huddles that these leagues must face in these new environments.
