Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite

New York has a plague of bedbugs, as told in this NY Times article. Blame the government, which banned powerful pesticides:
The cause of the resurgence is not certain, but experts have speculated that increased international travel, a recent ban on powerful pesticides and the market in used furniture have been factors.
