Bed bugs have seen a phenomenal resurgence in New York in recent years. Once uncommon in industrialized nations, the bugs have become such a problem that the City Council created an Advisory Board to figure out how to deal with the critters.
Since 2009, bed bugs infestations have hit the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office, CNN at the Time Warner Center, Victoria’s Secret, Abercrombie and Fitch, John Jay College, Manhattan College, a Brooklyn movie theater, and even offices of the city’s Health Department.
I told someone about bed bugs infesting NYC and I don’t think she really believed me. I had no idea myself that it’d gotten so bad as to show up outside of beds!
