While there are very few silver linings when it comes to the COVID pandemic, one positive effect of lockdown has been a significant decrease in the number of bed bugs causing bothersome infestations. Many of these awful pests have been dormant during the pandemic due to less travel, but exterminators warn that this respite is going to come to an end shortly. Keep reading to find out more on the imminent return of bed bugs, and for another insect you need to be ready for, If You Live Here, Prepare for a Major Bug Infestation, Expert Warns. There have been fewer bed bug complaints during the pandemic. Calls complaining of bed bugs have been on the decline over the past year, according to exterminators. "I’ve talked to multiple pest control companies, who have said that they have had reduced calls over 2020 for bed bug jobs," Brittany Campbell, staff entomologist at the National Pest Management Association, told Bloomberg.Bed bugs tend to move through two modes, as M&M Pest Control explains in a post. "Active dispersal" is when bed bugs crawl on their own, looking for a new spot to lay eggs. This mode is more common in urban areas because bed bugs can easily wander between apartments. On the other hand, "passive dispersal" is when the bed bugs hitch a ride on your shoes, luggage, clothes, etc., so they can travel quickly and discreetly. With a huge dip in travel, bed bugs haven't been able to achieve passive dispersal as readily, robbing them of their quickest spreading opportunity. However, we haven't seen the last of them, exterminators warn. And for more up-to-date information, sign up for our daily newsletter. Bed bugs will soon return to their previous level of spread. Once travel—to the office or for vacation—picks up again, exterminators predict the bugs will be back. Last fall, when it felt like there was the briefest reprieve from COVID, bed bug service calls began to climb again, Benjamin Hottel, a technical services manager at Orkin, told Bloomberg.The bugs haven't disappeared—they've just been lying in wait for their preferred mode of transportation to pick back up again. According to M&M Pest Control, bed bugs can live for up to a year and a half without eating. Or, as Richard Cooper, Terminix's senior director of speciality services, told Bloomberg, "Currently, they are just not moving, but they are not dying out. They are not gone, just inactive." And for more insect warnings, If You See This Bug That's About to Invade the U.S., Don't Kill It. Now is the best time to get rid of bed bugs for good. With passive dispersal of the pests down, now is the best time to beat back the bug. Although these insects can live for up to 18 months without food, they are more responsive to treatment when they are in a weakened state from not being fed, per M&M Pest Control.The pest control company suggests putting precautions in place while businesses are operating at reduced capacity to help mitigate the spread when the world begins bustling again. This includes minor renovations, such as "caulking baseboards, placing indicators under beds, and fixing peeling paint" to help prevent the pests. And for a bug that's nearly indestructible, You Can't Kill This Bug, Even If You Run Over It With Your Car. In some cases, the reporting of bed bugs has gone down due to fear of exterminators bringing COVID. Of course, there's more to this story than bed bugs being on lockdown along with us. While it's true that bed bug cases have declined overall, that's partly also due to people being reluctant to invite an exterminator into their home for hours out of a fear of contracting COVID."Bed bugs are still very prevalent in multifamily housing and spreading through these communities," Cooper told Bloomberg. "This can lead to an increase in residents’ self-treating, which is unlikely to be effective, promotes further spread, and can be unsafe if residents are not using appropriate materials or using materials incorrectly."

via CBSIf you love The Daily Beast’s royal coverage, then we hope you’ll enjoy The Royalist, a members-only series for Beast Inside. Become a member to get it in your inbox on Sunday.When Prince Harry and Megan Markle officially stepped back from their royal duties right around this time last year, the internet lost a favorite pastime: the scrupulous over-analyzation of what Meghan wore.Luckily, the famous couple has returned to the spotlight in what promises to be an explosive, tell-all attack on the royal family via a weekend primetime interview with Oprah Winfrey. “You’ve said some pretty shocking things,” Winfrey says in a promo. And such drama requires an outfit to match—one Meghan absolutely nails in Armani.As reported by Town & Country, Meghan wore a black silk Armani midi dress, belted with a full skirt and lotus embellishment on the shoulder. (It’s still on sale and costs $4,700, for anyone who might be interested in purchasing a very accurate, and expensive, Meghan Markle Halloween costume.)Town & Country noted, “Meghan specifically chose a dress with a lotus flower for her landmark interview with Oprah because of the symbolism behind the bloom... it is associated with rebirth and spiritual enlightenment.”And so Meghan will dish about how she found life as a royal, and the painful media attention that surrounded it, “almost unsurvivable,” while wearing a dress screams: I made it out. It’s a carefully-crafted statement of resilience. Given Meghan’s tendency to speak her values through her clothing, it’s hard to not read into the message.Harry and Meghan Are Begged to Delay Oprah Broadcast While Prince Philip Is Gravely IllBut do not think there was a threshold for sparkle: along with the shiny lotus, Meghan also wore a diamond bracelet that belonged to Princess Diana. Her legacy, and tragic death, is also evoked in the promo.Harry tells Oprah he wanted to leave the royal family because “I was afraid history would repeat itself.” Meghan sits next to him, holding his hand, her wrist adorned with Diana’s bracelet. So Harry’s mother is there, both in the spirit and through a tangible relic.This is, of course, not the first time that Meghan has used her clothes as an extension of her talking points. When the couple announced they are expecting their second child last month, Meghan posed for the photo in a Carolina Herrera dress she “recycled” from her first pregnancy with son Archie. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Misan Harriman (@misanharriman) So there are plenty of symbolic little Easter eggs in Meghan’s Oprah look. But it also just oozes glamour. It’s a little vintage in its silhouette, and slightly incongruous from the interview backdrop: a decidedly lowkey, very California backyard patio.Meghan has often been praised for her “relatability;” she’s worn affordable-ish Everlane flats, Aritzia dresses, and J. Crew. This dress does not follow that they’re-just-like-us tradition. For a serious confessional, Meghan wanted serious fashion. It is very black tie, and much fancier than Harry’s tech-bro-at-a-wedding gray suit with an open collar. It’s almost as if they got dressed for two different occasions that day. This dichotomy could be another example of the unfair reality of how famous women are expected to look compared to men, or it’s just indicative of something we already know: Meghan is the main event. The dress makes sure of it. Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day. Sign up now!Daily Beast Membership: Beast Inside goes deeper on the stories that matter to you.
