Good Night! Sleep Tight! Don’t Let The Bed Bugs Bite!
This all time favorite bedtime rhyme of kids seems cute but the main character of this poem is far from being cute in real life. Bed bugs are the most royal and lavish species of insect. Not only do they stay in your room and share your bed, but they irritate you so much at night that you start hating your cuddly bed and prefer sleeping in the living room. Why let them take over your bed and belongings and surrender defeat when you can easily win over them.
Continuing the above rhyme, “Don’t let the bugs bite! And if they do, then take your shoe and knock them till they are black and blue”. Well it’s not as easy as the rhyme portrays it to be. First you need to lure them out in the open and then attack. And there are other weapons for you also if you do not want to waste a pair of shoes smashing them.
