    The Population Explosion: Bed Bugs
    My Grandmother used to say to me:
    "Goodnight, sleep tight,
    don't let the bedbugs bite!" -- it was a joke back when I was a little girl (especially since Grandma kept everything immaculately clean) but it's no longer a joke.

    Bed Bugs are everywhere. Read about them here:
    http://bed-bug-bites.net/

    Here's a ruling from a judge that will probably make a precedent:

    I used this really good ant bait, it made the ants take food back to their queen and eventually, all ants stopped coming in.

    If bed bugs have a colony may be there's a bed bug bait .

    Don't sit down on the subway benches -- this article [May 8, 2008] about bed bugs at the subway station was in the New York Post

    SUBWAYS' BLOOD-BUG INVASION

    The official, identified as Edward Brownbear, also reported seeing the bugs on wooden benches at the Union Square and Fordham Road stations in Manhattan and The Bronx, respectively.
    Bedbug epidemic attacks New York City [Includes a list of NYC hotels that had outbreaks -- but this is dated December 30th 2007]

    Check out tripadvisor when booking hotels online to see if there are any reported outbreaks:

    aaaaaaaw, bugs in subway?

    once they are in, its difficult to get rid of them. one of my friends told me he used kerosene oil (no clue what it is) and it helped.

    does this mean affiliate programs proliferate like bedbugs?

    Nah, they don't multiply as fast as bedbugs.

    What an incentive to walk instead of using the subways

    Actually I was thinking of people coming to NY for different trade shows and I was looking for a list of hotels that have had breakouts but it's a role of the dice. Tripadvisor is one's best bet.
