Anyone familiar with Boulder Shelter for the Homeless knows about the infestation of these bloodsuckers there, since about this time in 2010 when they apparently hitched a ride to Boulder on a Denver transient. This combined invasion by BUMS and BEDBUGS (my preferred spelling) is what prompted the Homeless Philosopher to move outdoors year-round.
By all accounts, this is STILL a problem for residents and staff at BSH.
Actual size of Giant Mutant Bedbug! If you pass out drunk in a shelter bed, you’re risking your life . . .
