    Once just a distant memory or a reference in a popular bedtime phrase, Bed Bugs are real, and are making a comeback in the United States.  The Michigan Department of Community Health has gathered experts from across the state government, local municipalities and industry groups to develop resources and materials for Michigan.  The resources below will be updated periodically as more materials are developed and become available.
