^I had a real bastard in my room a couple of weeks ago. I kept waking up with bites all over, and had 8 in all. I'm also very allergic to them, so they swell the size of half dollars and itch like mad. Finally I awoke to it perched on the wall by my bed, and obviously engorged. I smashed it, but it left a huge streak of blood dripping down my wall! EW! It did inspire me to paint my bedroom, though. My new grey walls look lovely and soothing.
