New York-based exterminator M&M Environmental is capitalizing on this bed bugs-invade-fashion wave by creating a line of hungry little critter-inspired t-shirts. For just $20, the un-infested can declare to the world (and possible-overnight guests) that they are sans bed bugs. Example: "Date Me I'm Bed Bug Free" and "BBFF" (Bedbug Free Forever) emblazoned on a fitted tee. Just remember to wash it in hot water before wearing. [Fashionista; Previously]
