Beg Bugs are parasitic insects that feed on blood from warm-blooded animals, preferring human blood. The bugs are most often found in beds and other sleeping spaces in houses, hotels, and other accomodations. While not nocturnal, bed bugs are most active at night and will feed on sleeping hosts.
Bed bug bites can create a number of symptoms in hosts, and each host reacts differently. Possible symptoms can include rashes, blisters, and allergic reactions, among others.
A survey by Orkin - a large pest control company - found the following top ten most infested cities.
1. Cincinnatti, Ohio. 2. Columbus, Ohio. 3. Chicago, Illinois. 4. Denver, Colorado.
5. Detroit, Michigan. 6. Washington, DC 7. New York, New York. 8. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
9. Dayton, Ohio. 10. Baltimore, Maryland
Due to bed bugs' ability to spread through contact with hosts and their baggage, other areas are infested on a regular basis.

Africanized Honey Bees are a hybrid of bee that is extremely aggressive. The bees are easily agitated, even attacking due simply to the presence of a human or other animal. They attack 10 times faster than their European counterparts, and they will continue to attack for distances as long as a quarter mile.
Because of their aggression and tenacity, Africanized Honey Bees, more widely known as Killer Bees, pose a threat to humans, livestock, pets, and other animals.
Africanized Honey Bees have spread to a 10-state area. States with populations include Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
