New York City may be ground zero for bed bugs. According to an Associated Press story released this week, bed bugs were included last year for the first time in a citywide community health survey. More than 6% of respondents reported having battled bed bugs in the past year. That's a lot of people with bed bugs. What's more, New York is directing $500,000 in city health department budget to battling bed bugs. Believe me, you can buy a bunch of entomologists with that kind of money.
