Bedbugs? There’s An App For That

Bedbugs in NYC

By Joy Sherwood

Bedbugs have been slowly taking over New York City apartments, movie theaters, and retail stores since mid summer. Now it seems they have crawled their way into the beds where we feel most relaxed, and invaded luxury hotels, which has made New Yorkers and tourists alike feel a little bit itchier. Apple has come to the rescue, and created a useful App for those of us who just want to steer clear of the bugs all together. The App lets users manually input the location they are thinking of staying at and see if there have been any bedbug outbreaks in the area or in that location recently. $1.99 Go to the Apple Store on the Iphone.
