The bed bug outbreak has many New Yorkers concerned -- and wondering where to go to help should they be struck. It's important to note that bedbugs can live almost anywhere -- baseboards, windows, door frames, unused outlets, luggage, clothing...you get the idea. They can also live for weeks or even months without food.
According to the City , tenants whose landlords do not promptly respond to bed bug complaints can call 311 and file a complaint with the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and may also hire their own professionals.
