This is not going to be one of my favorite posts. In fact, as I read about this topic and write my notes, I am twitching uncomfortably. Still, bedbugs have become a hot topic recently with New York being mentioned as the prime area of infestation. For those traveling to that area for the holidays, perhaps you should get this app just in case of any problems. Bedbugs 'n Things addresses the horrible issue of these creatures being found in bedding, clothing, luggage and elsewhere all around us. In this app, you can see pictures of bedbugs and their bites so you can recognize them and hopefully stay away from infested areas. You will find out how to treat bites and infestations with the help of professionals. Before you travel, find out all you can to avoid bedbugs. You can even search the Web for “bug reports” by location, which is a very helpful tool all by itself. Some of the handy tools and features of Bedbugs 'n Things are as follows:

- Determine if you have been bitten by a bedbug or other common bug.
- Identify bugs in your hotel room, apartment, house, etc.
- Identify a rash caused by other bugs.
- Prepare for trips and check in safely with our “Traveler’s Checklist.”
- Learn how to get rid of bedbugs and how to treat the rash caused by a bug bite.
- Search the Web for “bug reports” by location.

If you are questioning the source of this information because you are skeptical, let me explain that the data is gathered by Skinsight, a leading source for dermatologic health information. There are excellent tips on prevention and close-up images of bedbug bites. I don't plan to be traveling myself over the holidays, but that doesn't mean these horrible critters cannot be found right in our home area. Insects have a way of traveling far and wide. Bedbugs 'n Things is a healthcare app that I think is important, traveler or not, considering the media these days concerning outbreaks.
