There are serious concerns for people trying to get rid of bed bugs.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now say pesticides for the bugs have killed one person and made more than 100 others sick since 2003.

Most of them are in New York City.

Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness and irritation of the lungs.

The problem gets worse if you use too much of the pesticide or don't wash sheets and blankets after treatments.
