"Bed Bugs found in local movie theater"

by John Cuoco

"WAUWATOSA -- AMC Theatres confirmed to CBS 58 that bed bugs were found at their Mayfair Mall location.

"According to the company, the bed bugs were found earlier this month and isolated to three rows of seats in a single theater.

"The investigation stemmed from a single bite.

"AMC assured CBS 58 and the public that the bed bugs have been taken care of.

"'At AMC, we take aggressive steps, including inspections, if a bed bug is suspected. If any inspection comes back positive for bed bugs, the affected area is treated by a third-party pest control company. A single auditorium at this location was treated early this month and we’ve had no reports since treatment.'

"The Wauwatosa Health Department said they have not received a complaint about the bed bugs, but ask people anytime they see bed bugs to report them.

"CBS 58 was alerted to the bed bugs problem at AMC by a viewer."

More and more these critters are invading hotels, private homes and other public places. It has nothing to do with cleanliness, or a lack of that.

DDT effectively eliminated bedbugs in the US. With the ban on DDT, travelers are now picking them up and bringing them back and causing infestations. There is no longer an insecticide that is 100% effective in eradicating them.

Someone has to come up with a tasty recipe for bedbugs, then we could eat them to extinction.
