Did you hear the news earlier this month that the discovery of bedbugs caused the clothing retailer Hollister to shut down for a few days? More than unpleasant, definitely creepy and not something anyone EVER wants to deal with, bedbugs are unfortunately, a fact of life in NYC (and, of course, beyond). We've written about them and gotten lots of reader feedback over the years, so for anyone who wants to learn more about dealing with these critters at home we've gathered all the intelligence together here in one place:
• Bedbugs Take Manhattan!
• Diagnosing Bed Bugs - The New Yorker
