The shame of bed bugs

Posted at 9:02 AM on January 16, 2009 by Julia Schrenkler

On News Cut Bob Collins writes about the Worthington bed bug breakout. The very first comment (posted by tooashamedtosay) got me thinking. It begins,

"bedbugs have ripped my family apart. My aunt, who travels a lot, got them and my mom wouldn't let her come visit this past year."
Do we ostracize others or protect ourselves from infestations? Is this relative to a quarantine or simply akin to avoiding exposure?

What would you do if you discovered bed bugs in your home? Would it change your relationships, or how you feel about your house? Share your take in the comments.
