Bedbugs invade New York City Cinemas

Popcorn isn’t the only thing getting eaten at cinemas in New York City. The AMC Empire 25 in Times Square was temporarily shuttered Tuesday night while a team of exterminators tried to rid the place of blood-sucking bedbugs—two weeks after it had initially been treated for the pests. Bedbugs were found at another theater, the Magic Johnson Harlem 9, last month, notes CNN, and have worked their way into stores like Victoria’s Secret.

    It’s a epidemic here in NYC period. I had an infestation in 2007 in my bedroom. It was brutal. I had to buy a discontinued indutrial poison that remained active for 8 weeks and I had to camp out in my own kitchen.
    These are nasty motherf*ckers, Mike. I haven’t been to the AMC on Times Square since Hellboy II but I guess I’ll take this as a warning.

      What scares me is if it can happen in NYC it can happen anywhere. I have long maintained that Mother Nature is pissed at us and now it’s payback time.

    I shudder to think of the manner in which bedbugs must have been able to infest a store like Victoria’s Secret.

    One of my friends daughters slept over a girls house who had bedbugs. Yep, you guessed it, she brought them home with her. My friend had the house exterminated, but it still didn’t get rid of all the bugs. She actually had to throw out furniture, clothing, bed sheets, ect. This turned out to be a very expensive ordeal. From everything that I have heard these little suckers are very hard to get rid of.
