Saw a report on the Today Show (video) this morning about bed bugs in NYC movie theaters. Seriously, whiskey tango foxtrot. Problem is, bed bugs are not all that easy to treat, and you can pick them up almost anywhere (especially if you stay at a hotel that is infested). Perhaps it's time to bring back DDT?
Then again, this blog entry in 2009 states that bed bugs are not as susceptible to DDT as we might think.
