You’ve heard about the latest Bed Bug appearance, right? A movie theater in New York’s Times Square! This is proof that no place is safe from a bed bug infestation.
Movie goers got more than they paid for at an AMC theater on 42nd Street after complaining of being bit while inside. The theater was shut down for a short time so that pest control professionals could treat the area. This recent outbreak comes after popular clothing stores in the city reported having bed bugs. Bergdorf Goodman has gone as far as hiring a bed bug sniffing dog to check the store each night as a precaution.
Web searches will reveal plenty of websites dedicated to the recent bed bug outbreaks, how to spot them and what to do if you’ve been infested. The NYC Department of Health has issued a few helpful guides for homeowners, tenants and landlords, hotels and other establishments. A Bed Bug Advisory Board has also been established in the city, with funds set aside to combat the bed bug pandemic.
