OMG, eww! If you’re like us, you’ve skirted a wide berth around any mattresses lying on the sidewalk awaiting trash pickup. New York erupted into an all-out panic over bedbugs, those hard-to-see, harder-to-get-rid-of insects that infested large swaths of the five boroughs and beyond. Terror-filled accounts of bedbugs infiltrating the Empire State Building, a Times Square movie theater, the Hollister store in SoHo and other high-traffic areas dominated the headlines last year. The only upside: cute bedbug-detecting beagles will come to your apartment if you’re forced to call an exterminator. Even so, we’re zipping ourselves into a plastic cocoon and hoping for the best. Just let us know when it’s safe to come out.[image_credit] => Wikimedia [image_highlight] => 0 [image_page] => 0 [image_display_order] => 27 [_DB_DataObject_version] => 1.8.5 [N] => 1 [_database_dsn] => [_database_dsn_md5] => 7d5a85f3960d9d91223e571f24c76791 [_query] => Array ( [condition] => [group_by] => [order_by] => [having] => [limit_start] => [limit_count] => [data_select] => * ) [_DB_resultid] => 13 [_resultFields] => [_link_loaded] => [_join] => [_lastError] => )
