You think incumbent politicians are hard to get rid of? Try bedbugs. The blood-sucking insects have made a resurgence in recent years, including reports of them at nine of the hotels being used for Democrats' nominating convention this week in Charlotte.
Jung W. Kim, environmental senior specialist for the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, said that bedbugs are on the rise, but about half of cases go unreported because victims don't react to bites.
Mr. Kim said upon checking into a hotel, guests should inspect their mattress, box spring and the back of their headboard for bedbug fecal matter in the form of tiny black dots.
