As Bedbugs Creep Out NYC, Tourists Crawl Away
Foxnews ^ | Oct 25, 2010 | AP News

Posted on 10/25/2010 9:53:35 PM PDT by Pavegunner72

New York City's bedbugs have climbed out of bed and marched into landmarks like the Empire State Building, Bloomingdale's and Lincoln Center, causing fresh anxiety among tourists who are canceling Big Apple vacations planned for the height of the holiday season.

Some travelers who had arranged trips to New York say they are creeped out about staying in hotels and visiting attractions as new reports of bedbugs seem to pop up every few days. And officials in Mayor Michael Bloomberg's administration are concerned about the effect on the city's image and $30 billion tourism industry.

These things are nightmare. We picked them up from a trip a few years ago and several hundred dollars and 10 months later, we were rid of them.

Anyone willing to pay NYC prices and taxes for the privilege of picking up turd world bugs deserves what she/he/it gets. Morons.

Bloomberg can go to hell with his 100% backing of the 911 Victory mosque so he could gain and main access to Islamic countries for financial data, print media and TV. HE is lower than a bedbug.

I would not go there and risk getting ticks, bed bugs or some jihadist with a truck bomb. F NYC.

Since I’m staying in NYC a few blocks from Times Square I did not need to read this.

According to the article, there was ONE BUG in Bloomingdale’s, and a few in the BASEMENT of the Empire State Building. It’s amazing how easily a panic can be caused....

You forgot the piles of garbage in the streets and general filthy state of the place.

Then there are the peep shows.

I've had a run in with the critters, too. This stuff(non-toxic) applied with a fogger worked like a charm.

Bedbugs are a consequence of allowing millions of illegal aliens to roam free and work anywhere in the U.S. Not only have bedbugs been spread by illegal aliens working in hotels - they brought them here... Modern Western Hygiene is not a value shared by Central and South American workers...

So - you get what you pay for... hotel staff - maids, etc., from Central and South America by the MILLIONS working in every hotel and motel ... totally ignorant of what is going on about them...

When there is no adherence to law - then we get what we get...

Then there is Chagas Disease - similar vector - MUCH WORSE DISEASE from these same human spreaders... LOOK IT UP....

Bed bugs....locusts...its all just a matter of semantics.

When I first started traveling the back woods of Asia in the early 70’s we used a DDT powder called “Moms” from the Philippines to sprinkle in the beds of the guest houses and poor hotels we stayed in the smaller places. It was recommended to me by an old German Doctor in Manila.
Wish I had some left for our upcoming travels to the East Coast.

I never knew about these critters until it was too late.

Now I check the reviews for all hotels prior and then check the mattress etc after I check in (before I unpack).

It’s a damn shame.

Remember this old saying, told to children at bedtime: “Goodnight. Don’t let the bedbugs bite.”
Did anyone know then that the little critters really existed?

Glad you were able to get rid of them.

If you think about it... a bed you sleep in has had LOTS of people “messing around” in it.

I found bedbugs at a Marriot-associated hotel in Boston. I spent a half-day trying to find first the office at the Massachusetts Dept. of Health dealing with it, and then someone who would actually answer the phone. Gov’t pr*cks could not care less.

For sure!

I am sure you know DDT was demonized by these same Liberal idiots and subsequently outlawed.
Actual Science shows that it is perfectly safe and the claims of it being a carcinogen are as fraudulent as CO2 being a considered pollutant; but regardless DDT could save millions in Africa from Malaria, but Liberal Junk Science trumps little brown people and is the religion of the Media and so, “LET THE BED BUGS BITE” :)

My husband has to stay in hotels, his job requires it. I get worried when he comes home. I never know what crawled into his bag.

That makes sense until you try to explain why it is NY much more than LA with the bedbug problem. No particular shortage of illegals in LA or other cities in the Southwest.

Why NY?

I don't care how expensive the hotel is...Those places are filthy and nasty...

Ya hear about the family last week, they went somewhere, and went into this hotel room and they turn around and their little kid has a used condom hanging out of his mouth...

Gezzzz....

Karma. Kismet. Fate. Just desserts in a fair world? Who knows?

I am trying to find out the overall hot pepper consumption of NY vs LA, and haven't figure out how to rate the types besides the Scofield units. And that doesn't take into account the differences in the flavinoid molecular structures.

The rooms are crawling with nasty bugs, they burrow into the mattresses and lay their eggs...Ya got the illegal maids looting and shaking down the rooms, wit h illegal alien cooks contaminating the food in the hotel kitchens...

Then ya jump in a cab with some hostile A-rab driver that smell like a GD camp fire, and he's scratching his beard...

It's enough to gag a maggot.

OH MY GOD.

I’ve had chigger bites before. I couldn’t believe how bad they itched but they looked nothing like that woman’s bites.

Now I’m paranoid. I’m going to look up his next hotel stay and see if they are infested.

He HATES staying at hotels but he has no choice.

That picture upsets me.

And now they will be willing to bring back DDT.

They left all those poor people to die overseas and now only DDT is going to save us from Bed Bugs.

. . . there was ONE BUG in Bloomingdale’s, . . .

My son is a professional exterminator. He says that if you see one bug, you likely have thousands and, depending on the species, could have millions.

Sadly, they don’t come to the mattress until you’re in it. The most elusive thing about bedbugs is they hide somewhere else, wait till you’re asleep, march over to your bed and attack. The secret is to find their nest.

So what do you do when you travel? For some reason when I am overnight away from home I find a hotel to be a sane choice for sleeping, bathing and eating.

I’d think the rats & roaches would already deter someone who doesn’t HAVE TO go to NYC from going; what a sewer. A friend of mine works there, and he says you can always tell when they’re filming a movie (besides the streets being blocked off): too many of the extras are “white”. You’d think you were in Edmonton...

I saw how absolutely non-white (at least what most of us would think of as white) NYC is when I visited there several years back. It seems like literally EVERYONE has jet black hair, and some shade of brown or olive skin. Every now and then you see a rather tall, slender, attractive woman with blond hair walking by, and you realize she is a model. The few other white people I saw I overheard speaking German or with a Midwestern accent, and knew they were tourists. I still remember a couple of natives chuckling loudly when a white guy walked past them, exclaiming excitedly as if they had seen an exotic foreigner, "He must be from Iowa!"
