KENNEWICK, Wash.- They're creepy, crawly, and they strike while you're sleeping.
@A resurgence of bed bugs created a nightmare on the east coast and is spreading throughout the country.
There is even evidence that they're beginning to infest the Tri-Cities and Yakima.
The general manager at Senske Pest Control says they've seen an increase from one or two cases a year, to one or two cases a week.
@"When I check into a hotel room I check the mattress, I check the baseboards, and I check the headboard for the tell tale signs of bed bug activity. As well as I carry a bed bud detection kit I set up," says Gene Chafe.
Chafe says while studies have shown bed bugs can carry disease, no evidence of spreading disease to humans has been found.
