Special Bed Bug Program at the Museum of the City of New York

If you live in New York, don't miss next week's panel discussion at the Museum of the City of New York. Entitled Plague! Bed Bugs: Myths and Realities, it will feature some wonderful people - Renee Corea (author of the fantastic New York vs. Bedbugs weblog), Lou Sorkin, of the American Museum of Natural History, City Council Member Gale Brewer, David Cain of Bed Bugs Ltd and more.

I had the pleasure to meet with Renee Corea and Lou Sorkin on my last visit to New York, and I would gladly listen to anything they have to say about the bedbug crisis affecting New York. Council Member Brewer has also been one of the most active voices in the city when it comes to the bedbug fight.

Reservations are required - you can call 917-492-3395 or e-mail the museum at programs@mcny.org. The cost is $6 for museum members; $8 for seniors and students, and $12 non-members, but the Museum has been kind enough to offer a discount price of $6 if you mention the Bed Bug Registry when you make your reservation.

I really wish I could attend this talk, and hope that any of you in NYC will take this opportunity in my place. If you want to hear informed and expert voices about bedbugs in New York City, this is the best group of people you could hope to assemble.
