I live in NY and everywhere you turn nowadays there is a new report that some building has been shut down due to a bed bug infestation. These creepy critters can pass from place to place/person to person and literally hang out any school, office building, hotel, etc.
In today's Daily News there is an article about the rate with which bedbugs are invading NYC Schools:
There's one thing to really note here...there is NO OFFICIAL LISTING for schools with infestations so I'm thinking we need a bedbug tracker or something--who's got time on there hands?
Anyway, I hear these can help you and yours stay protected http://www.bedbugpatch.com
And finally, here are some tips from the Housing Authority that may also help: http://www.nyc.gov/html/nycha/html/residents/bedbugs.shtml
