Large bedbug being escorted near LOVE Park, Philadelphia, 6/15/11
Take a bedbug out of its usual environment — behind the headboards of hotel beds, etc. — and it doesn’t get around as easily as you might think. Counterintuitively, this large one was moving cautiously along the sidewalk across from LOVE Park in Philadelphia, escorted by Lea Massado, on a promotional tour for a Hot Shot spray product designed to kill bedbugs and fleas on contact. Together  with a Purdue entomologist they were marketing a travel-size version of the spray.
