    "Even more alarming is that bedbugs in New York City are 250 times more resistant to pesticides than bugs from Florida - which explains why New York has such a massive bedbug problem at the moment."

    1 in every 15 people in New York are dealing with a problem right now.

    Now that's disturbing data....

    I think that "1 in 15" statistic is based on the DOHMH survey, which found that 7% of NYC residents had dealt with the problem over the past year, which is different from the blog's statement that 1 in 15 are currently dealing with it. http://newyorkvsbedbugs.org/2010/11/15/bed-bugs-and-poverty-in-cold-bar-chart-blue/

    Not that there's any way to be 100% sure of numbers when it comes to BBs.
