O Oedipus, discrowned head, Thy cradle was thy marriage bed; One harborage
sufficed for son and sire.
Sitting upon my throne of augury, As is my wont, where every fowl of heaven Find harborage
, upon mine ears was borne A jargon strange of twitterings, hoots, and screams; So knew I that each bird at the other tare With bloody talons, for the whirr of wings Could signify naught else.
These two maids Their sisters, girls, gave all their sex could give, Food and safe harborage
and filial care; While their two brethren sacrificed their sire For lust of power and sceptred sovereignty.
Relatively small repairs to doors, or easy sealing of harborages

Bed bugs are extremely sensitive to body heat and chemical odors such as carbon dioxide and pheromones, and they rely on these cues when locating potential sources of blood meals and harborages
. Many studies have described a distinctive odor that bed bugs produce, and several volatile aldehydes have been identified from the insect's scent glands (Cooper 2011).
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Enterobacter hormaechei, Bacillus licheniformis, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Arthrobacter sp., Micrococcus luteus, and three species of fungi were isolated from harborages
or surfaces of bed bugs (Reinhardt et al., 2005).
"On furniture, do not apply [propoxur] to seating areas, arms, or areas where direct skin contact can occur." Such label language is to safeguard from human contact while targeting bed bug in their harborages
. This proposed label language can be accessed online at the abovementioned Web site.
The edge is a "short swim" from land, yet far removed from Bahamas harborages
, with the exception of Marsh Harbor.
(ii) Trap count: Sticky cockroach traps were placed around the usual harborages
Most larvae (45 of 64) pupated under the paper that shaded the Petri dish harborages
regardless of ant presence or identity, but the frequency of pupal location was non-random among the 3 ant treatments (Fisher's exact test P = 0.029).
They provide innumerable harborages
for bedbugs and must be examined and treated in the same manner as residential areas.
"This principle addresses the elimination of niches and harborages
through proper specification of materials, finishes and sanitary design details of the utility system," notes Kramer.
