Bed Bug Guide

J-Sonoma is on vacation. Until he returns, us temps are going to be half-assing it on his pages. Enjoy this bed bug guide. J-S makes a point about not having bed bugs but trust me, ~80% of New Yorkers don't have bed bugs so he ain't special.

Bed Bugs - Cryonite Treatment for Office - Part 1

   This has to be one of the dumbest bed bug treatments I've seen on Youtube yet. You can tell that the guy spraying the "Cryonite" is unhappy to be there and he's going through the routine like he's probably done a thousand times. I can read his mind and this is what I'm reading, "I'm bored. I'm spraying haphazardly. When's lunch. I'm bored. Jackass 3D was great. My job sucks. Bed Bugs are great. I'm bored." The end result of all that spraying? I bet 80% of the bed bugs in that office are still alive and are sneering, "SUCKERS!"

Single dad driven off the job by bedbugs

   The scourge of bed bugs has no end. No end. Even single dads (potential DAP) are affected:
   The guys at work noticed that Mel was scratching. They asked him what was up. He said he had bedbugs. Here is a fresh hell:

Mel works with a dozen other men; a city job, to do with waste-water pumping. So, how did Mel’s mates react to the news about the bed bugs?

“At first they didn’t treat me bad. They’d say they felt sorry for me.” Their sympathy didn’t last.

“Pretty soon they didn’t want me around. To be honest, I don’t blame them.”

Mel had been doing his best. He was taking precautions. He was shaking out his clothes before he went to work. Not good enough, I guess.

“Eventually, they didn’t want to work with me. The acting super told me to take two weeks off — the guys were complaining.”

Mel’s blood pressure shot through the roof, as it would have done anyway: no sleep; constant worry; fear and frustration. But if you think it’s bad when you’ve got bugs and you can’t get rid of them, it’s worse when you’re treated like a leper at work.
