ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Maryland - As summer travel picks up for many military families, due to vacations or a scheduled permanent change of station, or PCS, move, there is one passenger you don’t want hitching a ride with you or your family – bed bugs. Bed Bug Awareness Week, observed annually during the first week in June, offers an opportunity to learn more about these pesky critters and how to protect yourself from unwanted infestations.
