Bedbugs On The Rise In US

Bedbugs are on the rise in the United States.

The Environmental Protection Agency says people should not go overboard and use chemicals meant for outside use inside your home.

They also warned against unrealistic promised by exterminators.

Officials say the bug all but vanished 60 years ago with the widespread use of DDT.

In 1972, the chemical was banned because it was considered too toxic for wildlife.
