We hear there was some confusion at a NYC Department of Consumer Affairs hearing this week about whether unscrupulousness or incompetence is to blame when a bed bug extermination goes bad.  Into the latter camp falls this example from the latest issue of TimeOutNY: An article advising, among other things, bed bug paranoids to scour their sheets with a flashlight an hour before dawn (when the bugs are apparently most active) features the firsthand story of a 33-year-old opera singer who says her exterminator told her that BED BUGS CAN FLY. Yes, and they can also play Minesweeper on your iPhone, though they prefer iDracula.  (TimeOutNY)
