Pest Proofing with the Lower East Side’s Bed Bug Busters | The Lo-Down : News from the Lower East Side
Summer in the city means lots of things: outdoor concerts, street fairs, green market goodness! It also means, unfortunately, that bed bugs are back with a vengeance. As high season drew near, we tagged along recently with the technicians at M & M Environmental, a Lower East Side company on the front lines of New York's epic bed bug battle. As you can see in the photo above, these guys are not messing around! Most recently, M & M was featured in a Discovery Channel/BBC segment about the hunt for rats in Chinatown. But over the past couple of years, the company has been a go-to resource for national and local newspapers and television programs covering the bed bug problem sweeping the city. No neighborhood has been left untouched by the bed bug epidemic. As you can see in this graphic (from the Bed Bug Registry), there are plenty of bed bug complaints on the Lower East Side. M & M Environmental does jobs all over the city, as well as in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Timothy
