Bed bugs have been the object of human nightmares for over 3,500 years. Artifacts show that the ancient Egyptians took advantage of the pests and used them to make an antivenin for snakebites. The ancient Greeks and Romans burned bed bugs to make leeches loosen their grip on human flesh. Since then, the only purpose that bed bugs serve is to drive people mad.
