Craigslist freebie of the day: Bug-friendly tree

ginger tree, with a catch

A ginger tree would be nice, but...

Somewhere between considerate and repulsive falls this Craigslist offer for a free potted ginger tree. The catch: it’s only fit to decorate a bed-bug infested home. The owner is about to fumigate and says the tree is “not necessarily” infested itself, and probably wouldn’t make a pre-existing bed bug problem worse. “So if you’re in the throes of an infestation and would like to bring a beautiful ginger tree into your home please send an email. I’ll deliver if I can.” Don’t let them get into your new sherlock hat though.
