(CBS) Bedbugs are back and badder than ever.
Although the nasty bloodsucking pests were largely eradicated through the use of DDT in the 1940's - they are beginning to rear their ugly heads again and are infesting people's workplaces, hotels and homes.
From sightings in fancy five-star hotels to movie theatres to clothing stores - seemingly no place is safe.
Worse, since bedbugs like to hitchhike, if you visit a place with bedbugs you might wind up bringing them home.
So, CBS News asked a group of extermination experts for the ins and outs of handling these bloodsucking mini-monsters and hopefully keeping them out of your life.
