Bed bugs are currently the scourge of New York City. If they’re not infesting the Upper East Side, they are all up in the Hollister store or ruining Anderson Cooper’s 360 degree views. And now they have been spotted at The Fashion Institute of Technology. However, do not fear FIT students! Your administration seems to think that capturing one bed bug in plastic will fix an infestation problem. Um…. The number of things wrong with that are a lot.
It’s great that someone at FIT found and killed the perpetrating bed bug. But bed bugs don’t really hitchhike solo. So chances are there will be more emails like this going out soon. Here’s the good news! They were found in a classroom, and bed bugs don’t bite people when they’re studying. They only attack when you’re sleeping or at home. So just keep one eye open at night, FIT kids!
