No! No! No! This is the SUMMER OF THE BEES!

Spotted yesterday on Seventh Street... Bedbugs had their time in the sun. It's the Summer of the Bees! So it should read... "Free: Not Bees Infested." Or something in keeping with the spirit of the note.

What was this the summer of?

Well, we're not really into labeling things (too much!) ... as you may recall, somebody dubbed last summer The Summer of Bedbugs hereabouts.

So, what will this summer be remembered for?

The Summer of the Doorshitter?

The Summer of the Discarded Mattress Epidemic?

The Summer of the Walk Man?

Or, of course, The Summer of Giant Chipmunks?

The Summer of Irene?

Oh, or Rats. The Summer of Rats.

We likely know where this one is headed. Vote early and often!

Mattress factory

Seems to be a more active move in/move out end-of-month/beginning-of-month period than usual... seems as if more people are moving out than moving in... While walking around yesterday and today, I counted 17 abandoned mattresses... I started taking pictures of them... but you get the idea...

And none of them were marked "bedbugs."

A terrible experience prompts bedbugs art

We've posted some bedbug art by Samuel Mark here in recent weeks... there's a short Q-and-A with him over at The Wall Street Journal... As he says about his bedbug art: " I am actually just trying to raise awareness. To me, it’s a big problem. I actually experienced bedbugs firsthand and had a terrible experience."
