For anyone who might meander onto this thread a little late in the game....

Re: Did anybody else hear about this??

From what I've heard/read, the bedbugs are due to widespread international travel. Foreigners have brought them to us. Goody! I guess they can get in your luggage and go home with you, and mattresses...

Re: How much money ? ... ?

You really have to ask yourself a few questions:
