Bed Bug Registry

Bed Bug Registry, [New York Times] The summer bugs fear continues.Not content simply to browse the men’s wear, miniature animals, some fear, have been acting like so many New Yorkers in search of cooler weather and some Summer entertainment, appearing in theaters.
In the user-generated Bedbug Registry, one said Leonard Hall, a retro multiplex Park Slope, might be infected. He said he saw “a lot of men with big boxes and hoses in the lobby,” and asking for their purpose for which said the men replied: “The bugs had been found in all ancient theaters with purple seats .
“Yikes!” Was the reaction Monday at Brownstone.
But the theater said that the spraying was strictly precautionary. “We have no bugs in the theater,” said Lauren Goffi, a general manager who, on the phone yesterday afternoon. “That is false information.”
Ms. Goffi said the theater sprayed their seats “every few months” for the bugs, and the last treatment was recent. “We will continue with this to ensure that you do not get,” he said.
Theatre does not provide the name of his killer. A bug expert and a Queens exterminator both said they had never heard of any company offering preventive spraying for bugs.
And the expert, Dr. Michael T. Potter, who studies the plagues of the University of Kentucky, said the treatment would be of questionable effectiveness. “The sad reality is that we have less than ideal today insecticides to prevent bedbug infestations,” he wrote in an e-mail message, “since most products have very poor residual activity, dry (in case had a bug crawl out of one bag at a theater or whatever, if you dragged onto the seat is probably not succumb.) ”
Dr. Potter added that the best practice for conducting inspections, chemicals only powerful if the bugs were found, but that “many in the industry doubt preventively spray in areas occupied by humans, especially in Seat cushions and such, even if the actual health risks are minimal. ”
Other things that keep coming when many hoped would just go away: the cast of “Jersey Shore”, which are currently involved in a contract dispute with producers. TMZ reports that the cast is filming the third season of reality show, is demanding better compensation – now get to 10,000 per episode, reports the site – and went on strike this weekend.
On Monday, TMZ wrote that 495 Productions, which produces the show, was taking a tough line with the actors, “” under the assumption that there were plenty of other “situations” out there willing to be exploited for cash call and a little fame. (And indeed, there are.)
“The show is rich with famous people managers to reach the coast,” said a representative of the producer TMZ. Of course not. That’s the second season.
No longer content to focus on relationships and the meaning of GTL, the show, like many other reality programs, has rapidly turned into a failure to control and connect.
Perhaps what the Coast needs is a lovers lane. These corridors were added after apparently essential to the urban fabric, writes Ephemeral New York.
Oh, and then there’s this: The rats in the ceiling.
As NY1 reported over the weekend, the tenants of 355 East 10th Street have been rats “so aggressive that they are eating through the walls.” Construction workers removed “two dozen” dead rats in one apartment, the report said.
Proving once again that no matter how horrible things are – that is, bugs – things can always get a lot worse.
But not to believe that the fauna of the city is disgusting variety, take heart: there is a dazzling white pelican in Queens. Not a drop of oil in sight.
