Bedbugs Becoming Extremely Resistant To Pesticides

OMG this is scary!

New scientific studies have revealed that in New York City, bedbugs are 250 times more resistant to pesticides than bedbugs in Florida.

Lab tests around the world show today's bedbugs can survive pesticide levels a thousand times greater than the lethal dose of a decade or so ago.

Um, we are NOT jealous of our east coast comrades right now. Sweet dreams tonight, don’t be alarmed if the bed bugs bite!

The just can't catch a break.

After relocating from their bedbug infested offices at Broadway and 50th to the Time-Life building, Elle still has pests only these are much bigger.

An email was sent out to the staff warning them to be extra cautious with their belongings because they could get stolen.

The email read:

"We're sorry to report that we have experienced several incidences of theft over the last few days. We are making sure we have locks available tomorrow . . . In the meantime, we urge you all to lock up your laptops or take them home with you until we have a way to secure them."

Shady.

You'd think a building like Time-Life would have better security than that.

Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportz

This is becoming a mayjah problem!

Manhattan's Niketown was forced to close on Saturday due to bedbugs.

Nike released a statement saying:

"Our primary concern is the well-being of our consumers and sales associates. We are taking all proper steps to eradicate the problem, and we expect the store to reopen shortly."

The store has yet to announce when they'll reopen, but considering the store is 5 floors we're guessing it'll take a while.

Abercrombie To Close More Than 100 Stores

ap070820040247_e.jpg

It's been a rough year for Abercrombie & Fitch.

After being infested with bedbugs and cutting prices to keep up with competitors the preppy retailer will be closing 60 stores by the end of the year and 50 more by 2012.

Abercrombie said the majority of the closures are due to expired leases, but we're sure having crappy sales didn't help either.
