Collect call from Mr. Bed Bug

Dial 311 in New York and you won’t get local traffic, sports, or the severe weather alert system. Instead you’ll be connected to the Bed bug hot line where you can report infestations, bites and apparently get information on their control. The epidemic is so out of hand bed bug sprays are flying off the shelves and pest & termite control companies are using dedicated trucks set up just for the bed bugs to try and keep up. Complaints in New York are up 34 % and that estimate is probably extremely low. Some neighborhood calls to 311 of their bed bug infestations have doubled and there is no reason to doubt that a similar number of problems exist but are not called in. Many people are of the do it yourself pest control mentality and we may never get an accurate sense of the problem.
