    Dear Folks,

    As they say down south, the initial donation "turned up missing" in about a week. As such, I shipped five additional copies to the NYPL for our bed bug friends in New York.

    The Bed Bug Combat Manual is currently available for loan at the New York Public Library at the following locations:

    Mid Manhattan Non Fiction First Floor

    Bronx Library Center Non Fiction

    St George Non Fiction

    Jefferson Market Non Fiction (in transit, should be there soon)

    If you borrow the book from the NYPL I hope you find it useful to support your bed bug efforts.

    Best wishes for a bug free day to all ! paul b.

    That's great, Paul.

    This would be a good resource for people who must self-treat or who want to learn more about bed bugs generally.

    I suspect the Mid-Manhattan librarians were also interested as they had their own bed bug issues a few years ago.

    I started and run the site but am "not an expert."

    Well, I guess someone was interested because the original lasted about one week on the shelf before it disappeared.

    Paul, are you going to comment about bedbugs and libraries for the article? It is also about packtiting.

    I'm reading an article about an LA library having BBs right now.

    A long time ago I read that it was unlikely that the BBs would be transported home unless it was a bad infestation. I think there is even a case (Denver?) where a guy who has infested the library there TWICE is suing because he no longer has privileges.

    They
    Are
    Out
    There
    = TAOT

    Here's one of the articles about the LA Central Library having BBS:

    http://blogs.laweekly.com/informer/2012/09/bed_bugs_at_la_central_library.php

    Is it just me, or did the library staff not discuss training, inspections of returned items (that would be a lot of packtites or 2 insect infernos), etc.

    I read an article a long time ago that there shouldnt be that much transportation of BBs from libraries to homes. To me, a book kept bedside for a week or two would seem risky.

    Bed bugs have been found in a number of libraries in various cities & towns and this is so for a variety of reasons.

    For grins & giggles you can google huntington libray and riverhead library for the news stories on those two situations.

    So, how to bed bugs get into libraries? Hmmmm !

    a. Many folks read in bed so, . . .

    b. There are folks who enter libraries and find secluded areas where they can sleep or rest during inclement weather.

    Hope this helps ! paul b.
