Bust your bed bug myths Jan. 18th

Stop the bed bug presses. Two of the world's most revered bed bug experts--New York entomologist Louis Sorkin and London-based researcher and pest management expert David Cain--will appear on the same panel next week at the Museum of the City of New York.    

"Plague! Bed Bugs: Myths and Realities" promises to separate hype from reality and tell you what to do to keep bed bugs out of your apartment. Other panelists include New York vs Bed Bugs blogger/bed bug activist Renea Corea as well as Yasmine Hecker, who runs a bed bug prep service

Tickets for the 6:30 pm panel can be purchased online and are $12 for non-museum members ($6 for members) and $8 for seniors and students.

By coincidence, apparently, NYC council member Rosie Mendez is hosting a bed bug forum on the same evening, "Bed Bugs in Private Housing."  The free forum will be held at the Health Professions High School Auditorium, 345 East 15th street between First and Second Avenues from 6-8pm.
