Government Failure Over Coronavirus and Bed Bugs Shares a Common Theme

As of right now there are less than 200,000 official Coronavirus deaths on record. That number represents about .0001% of the Earth’s total population.

After the abrupt economic shutdown enforced by many governments around the world, the number of deaths due to unemployment, stress, malnutrition and lack of food, and lack of activity is likely to reach into the millions if not tens of millions starting with the poorest among us.

And now, the word is there will be a partial and tiered re-opening of the economy, but all limitations will be lifted only when we get a proper vaccine, according to Texas governor Greg Abbot.

There are many reports of doctors treating the Covid-19 bug using zinc, vitamin C and hydroxichloroquine– and mainstream media and governments have said that’s not good enough. There needs to be a vaccine.

1 solution. Their solution. And you will pay the cost and deal with the consequences.

Given the fact that vaccine makers have liability protection and can’t be sued by people who are injured or killed due to the vaccine ingredients, do you really trust them to put things in your body for life?

This 1 size-fits-all approach, without any debate as to whether a vaccine will work or if it’s safe and who stands to profit, reminded me a lot of how governments around the world have handled the bed bug problem.

How Governments Blew it Big Time with Covid-19

Just 3 months ago, politicians were saying Covid 19 was no more powerful than the flu, and no one was advised to limit their social interaction to prevent passing around the contagion. Many were even advised to visit Chinatown in spite of the fact that the virus originated in Wuhan, China.

Fast forward 3 months and here we are under medical martial law. Many businesses have been forced to shut down or face large fines and/or imprisonment along with individual citizens for not wearing a mask or walking along a mountain path with no one around for 5 kilometers.

Now people are going broke and losing patience with many state governments shutting down everything except “essential businesses”, and protests have started across America and the world.

Government Shuts Down Potential Natural Solutions for Bed Bugs

I’ve been helping people get rid of bed bugs for over 5 years now and one of the strangest lessons I have learned about the USA and the land of the free is just how terribly un-free we actually are.

Right now, if you were to Google search “how much does it cost for bed bug extermination?” you would likely get some mainstream press releases that spell out a sum of anywhere from $300 to $2000, or even more.

That assumes a lot, like for one, that you’re considering a professional pest removal service, and two, that you even have that kind of money laying around to deal with a bed bug problem.

Most existing products of this type are almost 100 years old, and their marketing reflects that. In addition to this, they exist in a highly regulated industry for pesticide use in addition to agricultural use.

The EPA won’t even let people know about one of the best all-natural solutions for bed bugs, even though in many cases it’s safe enough to eat and I’ve done it probably 15 times.

For newcomers, getting a new license to start a pest product against bed bugs would require somewhere around $250,000 before you ever made a sale. And yet, the raw material is literally dirt cheap and abundant- but most importantly, safe and effective.

Folks Get Bit and Go Broke While Government Tells You It’s for Your Own Good

And that’s the irony of it all, the government which is supposed to protect you is actually doing everything it can to reward a select few and disregard the damage that it causes you.

And you’re still expected to pay your taxes every year regardless as the screw job continues day in day out.

Keeping people poor and preventing them from finding better solutions for their lives is the mark of government tyranny and it’s a violation of human rights. It’s the mark of communism and corporatism.

Governments help create monopolies so that there’s only a few winners- and a whole lot of losers.

Don’t Take Their Shots- Don’t Buy Their “Solutions”

If we cannot rely on our elected officials and government bureaucracies to at minimum not cause us harm, then it’s time we took matters into our own hands and stopped depending on all their “expert opinions”.

No one can tell you how to live your life and no one should.

Evil Person Releases Bed Bugs- at Wal Mart!

In what’s got to be one of the stranger new stories of the new year 2020, employees at a Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania discovered 2 pill bottles containing bed bugs hidden in the store. One of the bottles filled with bed bugs was found in a changing room, along with bedbugs crawling around the area, and the other was seen near some belts in the clothing section.

Upon investigation the police indicated they had no leads in the case, hoping “it was not a prank by some of the employees”, but offered not much more than that. Considering that 2019 was a year that saw people going into Walmarts and other grocery stores and either licking ice cream or rinsing with Listerine before putting it back on the shelf, it would be awfully shortsighted to rule out public indecency.

Why a Prank with Bed Bugs Gone Wrong Could Ruin Your Day

We were all young once. Some of us probably delighted in the latest pranks or shenanigans we could dream up or those we heard about from our mischievous cohorts in elementary or middle school, but when you’re playing with bed bugs, you are playing with fire.

In fact, the cost of bed bugs for businesses as well as average consumers can range into the hundreds of millions of dollars a year. One example is a recent story where actress Connie Marie Flores went on a cruise with her husband from Los Angeles and claimed to have been devoured by bedbugs during their stay. They opened a lawsuit claiming damages in the amount of $75,000 for stress, anxiety and ruining their trip- and this is only one example of legal action taken against a business for bed bugs. They happen all the time.

Shock Poll: Just How Popular Are Bedbugs in Your City?

In a recent poll the #1 city in the US with bed bugs was the nation’s capitol, Washington D.C., so at least we know it’s a city that offers inclusion to all forms of parasites, be it political or of the insect world.

Baltimore came in at #2 with Chicago, Los Angeles, and Columbus Ohio also making the top 5. Chances are good that your city has bed bugs if it has a large population or lots of public transportation, providing more opportunities for bed bugs to hitchhike home on unaware people.

Bed bugs are often found in hotels, motels, and even on city buses, subways, and movie theaters.

How Can You Tell if You Have Bed Bugs?

A bed bug’s bite is usually found in clusters or groups of bites. They may cause a large red area around the bites and are usually found on skin areas exposed while sleeping. In extreme cases bed bug bites can cause scarring and while usually harmless otherwise, can also in rare instances carry the chagas disease.

The best thing to do is to check any mattress or bed frame that you’ll be sleeping on regularly, inspecting the seams and creases in the mattress and looking out for red, black, and brown splotches which could indicate the remains of dead bed bugs.
