One Way to Get Rid of Bedbugs: Burn The House Down

You might want to do anythingto get rid of bedbugs, but adding fire to the mix didn’t end well for one Cincinnati woman trying to rid her apartment of the tiny creeps. As the AP reports, she accidentally started a house fire while trying to kill bedbugs with rubbing alcohol on Friday, causing $250,000 in damage and hospitalizing three people with smoke inhalation.
