A couple who live in the the Ansonia have cockroach infestation that sounds kind of biblical. The NY Times reports on their nasty infestation. I’m not sure where I stand on cockroaches v. bedbugs. I say they are equally gross….but there are so many products out there to kill cockroaches and only a few to kill bedbugs. Plus bedbugs feed on your blood and as far as I know roaches don’t attack humans. So gross factor aside, they need a serious cleaning.
The couple is currently suing the management company. And the bugs have gotten everywhere: floors, walls, curtains, and the bed. As evidence, they’ve collected about 50 dead roaches over the last three days, storing them in a jar, and they are also keeping a log of roach sightings.
New York can be one nasty city.
