Bedbugger continues our multimedia morning with a horrifying YouTube video of what looks like hundreds of bedbugs occupying a Brooklyn apartment. Consider this your Not-Safe-For-Sleeping-Soundly-Tonight alert. This infestation, the filmmaker reports, was tamed after three exterminator visits.
The local spread of bedbugs has been reported here, and a related story in today’s Times of London shows that the epidemic now extends to other English-speaking countries. A global confrontation is inevitable. Have your flame-throwers at the ready.
