Good things come in small packages as Marvel Animations series of cartoon shorts is kicking off this weekend with Marvels Ant-Man on Disney XD. The debut of these six new action-filled shorts gives viewers a peek into the life of Scott Lang as he battles Yellowjacket, finds common ground with Wasp, and creates a giant piece of cheese. You know, the typical super hero life.

Marvel.com talked with the new voice of Ant-Man Josh Keaton, whose previous roles include many familiar video game voices and most recently, Shiro on Voltron: Legendary Defender. We spoke with Josh about taking on the exciting task of voicing of the Ant-Size Avenger, and whether saving the world or helping with homework is the more difficult task.

Marvel.com: Have you always been a Marvel comics fan?

Josh Keaton: Absolutely, my favorite comic book character is Spider-Man. Ant-Man is a new thing for me, I didnt go into this knowing as much about him so I had research more about the character, I started reading more about Scott as the process was going on.

Marvel.com: How did you decide to approach the character of Scott Lang, did you use past iterations of Ant-Man (Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes!, Marvel StudiosAnt-Man movie) to get his character just right or is this your own new variation on Scott Lang?

Josh Keaton: Im definitely putting my own spin on it, I like a lot of the stuff that other people who have played him have contributed. I like Paul Rudds snarkiness, Ive been a fan of his for a long time. Its not necessarily a recreation of any particular performance, Im taking elements of what Ive read about the character and how I feel he would be.

Marvel.com: Is there a particular way you get into character to voice a superhero? Most superheroes have alter egos so its really two characters in one but here you have Scott Lang, Ant-Man, and also Giant Man, so you get three characters in one.

Josh Keaton: At the end of the day its all Scott. Hes got the mask on but hes very much the same character in and out of the suit. Theres not a lot hes trying to hide, if anything hes trying to prove himself to the rest of the Avengers and trying to prove that hes not a bad guy. Hes a likeable guy and he wants to be liked.

Marvel.com: Youve voiced Shiro in Voltron Legendary: Defender. While Shiro is a born leader, Scott was pretty much thrown into the action. How does that manifest itself in the way you approach voicing Marvels Ant-Man?

Josh Keaton: It helped the process that I wasnt as familiar with the character as I have been with other superheroes that Ive played. Shiro is larger so theres a physicality that I get into when voicing him, and Ant-Man is more like an everyman. There are definitely some parallels between the characterstheres a huge amount of loyalty that you can find in both. Its really more of a mental place to get into, rather than physically preparing to get into the role.

Marvel.com: With these shorts you get a quick but concise look into Scott Langs world. What do you think fans will like most about these shorts?

Josh Keaton: One of the things that I really love about the shorts is the fact thatmuch like the fact that he can shrink and growhis problems and the enemies that he faces also shrink and grow. I mean, hes fighting this massive force of nature in one, and then in another one hes fighting the exterminator thats going to kill his ant buddies. Its just a run of the mill exterminator that is just as much of a supervillain to his ant buddies as a much bigger supervillain would be to the rest of the world. He still has that loyalty to his little buddies that he does to humanity.

Marvel.com: Wasp is clearly superior when it comes to plan of attack against enemies, do you think Scotts faltering helps his character?

Josh Keaton: Absolutely. Hes able to poke fun at himself. He knows that hes still kind of figuring stuff out, things are going to go wrong and he just kind of deals with it. Theres definitely a relaxed-ness to him, even under fire. Theres even a little bit of crossover with Spider-Man, theres that humor that comes out under fire and Scotts always down to make the joke.

The rest is here:

Oregon’s bedbug secrecy law who are we protecting? – InvestigateWest

Redacted By Lee van der Voo, Managing Director | 8 hours ago

Pietr Naskrecki / CDC/Harvard University

Cimex lectularius

The thing that sucks about bedbugs is that if they bite you, you might not know it for a few days. Or if theyre biting around Oregon, you might not know it at all. I had this experience once: bedbugs in a hotel. At the time I didnt realize that a bedbug bite has such a delayed reaction that it can take a few days to know youve been feasted upon. Which is why, four days after an unwitting encounter with bedbugs at a hotel in Michigan, I came home to what seemed like an allergic reaction to nothing. Creeping skin and welts. Dawning realization. And a week of household mayhem that I wish to never repeat.

The experience gave me a rather acute distaste for Oregons bedbug privacy law. Yes, this exists; an actual law protecting the whereabouts of bedbugs. Its an exemption to the Oregon Public Records Law. And I will hold it now up as an affront to reason, because its a perfect example of why the Oregon Legislature should approve the creation of a Sunshine Committee to review exemptions, an idea that got a public hearing June 29 and may be approved before this sessions end.

The bedbug exemption? This ones a gem. In a category of legislative devolution, it should be gold-foiled and enshrined. Generations of gawkers should stand before it, wondering, as I do, How ? In concept, it is like an airplane with one wing, a building made of Jell-O But Ill do my best to describe its merits, because early on it had some.

Passed as HB 2131 in the 2013 regular session of the Legislature, the bedbug law requires certain information pertaining to bedbug infestations to be held confidentially by public health authorities and exempts information from disclosure under public records law.

As is the case with such exemptions, this one was created by well-meaning people who believed that by making information about bedbug extermination confidential, they could pass a law requiring pesticide companies to share data with the Oregon Health Authority and other public health agencies. The plan was to give the state and its counties valuable public safety knowledge about how to fight bedbugs. The data, they hoped, would lead to understanding about the size of the problem, and plans for better ways to deal with it.

Betsy Straus, legislative director of the ACLU at the time, rightly pointed out that the privacy information the law sought to except already was exempt from disclosure under Public Records Law in Oregon, and on a case-by-case basis. That, she said, would have allowed for information to be released to someone when it might have an even more immediate impact on that persons individual health. Today it isnt quite clear why pest control companies sought this extra layer of privacy in the form of exemption from Oregon Public Records Law. And Straus questioned in 2013 whether the states law would really yield much public benefit without transparency. The policy wasnt unprecedented health officials often offer confidentiality in exchange for critical data that helps them fight disease. San Francisco, for example, requires exterminators to report the number of units sprayed by U.S. Census tract monthly. Such legislation puts useful and transparent data in the governments hand without a privacy exemption for property owners.

But then this happened: the legislation which sprang from a public work group that included health officials and pest control companies was haggled over until pest control companies compliance with the reporting became voluntary. Thus, in researching the effect of this law for this column, I found not a single public health report, improved bug-fighting battle plan, or better-informed bedbug-fighting policy as a result of this exemption. In fact, theres been no greater understanding of the whereabouts of bedbugs than there was before this exemption. And thats because pest control companies never volunteered to play ball.

As it turned out, without the stick, the carrot was not enough, said Julie Sullivan-Springhetti, the public information officer for the Multnomah County Health Department. No information has been voluntarily forthcoming since the bill was passed.

Every. Item. Of fabric. In my house. Every shirt. Every pair of pants, shorts, pajamas. Every sock. Every sheet. Every throw blanket, pillowcase, bedspread. All washed in super hot.

Instead, said Sullivan-Springhetti, the countys work group met to discuss what data was available from pest control companies and the details the county would need to improve the public response to bedbugs for nine months. In the end, the industry walked away and said, This isnt workable, were not comfortable sharing this information.

Yet Oregon blazed a trail with this law. During the 2013 legislative session, Governing magazine, a trade publication for government and legislative types, called it an unusual deal between the states Legislature and its exterminators.

How unusual?

Four years later, Oregon is still unique in protecting the confidentiality of bedbug treatments among states surveyed nationally by the EPA last fall. No other state offers confidentiality around bedbug infestations. And Oregon doesnt protect its residents or guests against them in the first place.

For example, the state doesnt require landlords, hotel owners, bed and breakfasts or any other business that offers overnight accommodations (save, ironically, for campgrounds) to keep those facilities free of bedbugs, as other states do. Some states have taken protections further, extending them as far as railroad cars (Illinois), migrant camps (Iowa), orphanages and juvenile jails (Wisconsin), even public schools (New York). South Dakota protects vacation homes, too, perhaps understanding that a secret bedbug problem is a black eye that the states tourism industry doesnt need.

Yet Oregon still doesnt mandate the remediation of bedbug infestations anywhere except campgrounds, and it doesnt prohibit landlords, hotel owners, or Airbnb hosts from renting out rooms that are known to be infested with bedbugs. This, while a law thats never been used to collect data about bedbug infestations remains on the books, standing guard against disclosures about bedbug infestations, potentially complicating the fact that, by law, public housing inspectors just like restaurant inspections are still supposed to be public.

If policy were signs, this one would read something like this: Welcome to Oregon. Take our bedbugs with you. Getting paranoid yet? Me, too.

Mine is an informed paranoia, heightened because, in my own experience of being feasted on by bugs, it took me days to realize it. Days of evaluating where I slept, what I ate, whose cat I scratched, and whether that guy at the airport looked like he might have a host-jumping skin disease. Its a lot of time to wonder about a path to exposure. And absent any public information about hotels, restaurants, movie theaters and other places that might have been a source of bedbugs, one can only guess at what action they ought to take to protect the next person.

This is what that looked like for me: Four days after I returned home from my trip to the Michigan bug hotel, I was popping Zyrtec like a champ. I didnt know what Id eaten, why my skin felt so weird, or whether I could go to work or needed a nonstop shower. An hour or two of internet searching told me I didnt have a spider bite on my arm. And a few photos made me realize that those sheets back at the hotel occasionally dusty, like hubby had been eating dessert in the bed again probably had been visited by bedbugs.

It was a pretty dramatic realization. After all, four days had gone by. Id already hung my clothes back in the closet, put my suitcase back in storage and plopped back into my own bed for a few nights. So it was only after I called my brother-in-law (who, lucky for me, happens to be in pest control) in a semi-hysterical state that I began to understand what a hell-inducing experience this was going to be. On the advice of the family expert, I planted the feet of my bed in baking soda, combed every inch of my furniture with a flashlight, and then washed every item of fabric in my house. Let me say that again, real slow: Every. Item. Of fabric. In my house. Every shirt. Every pair of pants, shorts, pajamas. Every sock. Every sheet. Every throw blanket, pillowcase, bedspread. All washed in super hot. And all the fabric-covered things that dont go in the wash? Pillows, stuffed animals, dog toys all those go in the dryer. The rest got vacuumed about 50 times.

Turns out I didnt bring any bedbugs home. None I didnt kill, anyway. No hitchhikers on my suitcase, which I sprayed with half a can of bug spray to be sure. But that didnt stop my life or my basement from becoming an interminable tower of laundry, or from my having to take time off work just to clean my house, or to contemplate hitting my mattress with a Sawzall and throwing it out the window with a blazing torch behind it.

Would I rather have avoided this whole experience? Yes. And the notion that any hotel that inflicts any such experience on a guest is entitled to its privacy is infuriating, absurd and also nave. This exemption never would have saved bug-infested hotels from the fate of 100 Yelp reviews. It only would have prevented 100 Yelp reviewers from having a better experience.

Of course, the Oregon Restaurant and Lodging Association supported this approach to bedbugs in Oregon. An effective response relies on good data, and we believe that data should be collected in a way that fully protects the privacy of those businesses most impacted, wrote the associations Nellie deVries in testimony supporting the bill. Of course! Data protection and privacy! Who doesnt support those? But we know that if people could actually avoid hotels that were infested with bedbugs, or even areas of hotels that are infested with bedbugs, they would. And they have a right to.

But this column is not about bedbugs. Its about secrecy. And so at least our bedbug law finally has a use: to underscore how badly Oregon needs to review the more than 550 exemptions to Oregon Public Records Law, many of which probably never did what was intended and, meanwhile, threaten harm to the public.

The Oregon Legislature currently is considering HB 2101, which in its present form proposes a Sunshine Committee to review exemptions, and that each freshly proposed exemption comes with a public impact statement that addresses what the impact to closing off records has on the Oregon public.

This group would include at least one public member, and the option for public participation at meetings designed to review these laws. It is badly needed in Oregon to prevent more laws like this one.

Josh Keaton: Im definitely putting my own spin on it, I like a lot of the stuff that other people who have played him have contributed. I like Paul Rudds snarkiness, Ive been a fan of his for a long time. Its not necessarily a recreation of any particular performance, Im taking elements of what Ive read about the character and how I feel he would be.

Marvel.com: Is there a particular way you get into character to voice a superhero? Most superheroes have alter egos so its really two characters in one but here you have Scott Lang, Ant-Man, and also Giant Man, so you get three characters in one.

Josh Keaton: At the end of the day its all Scott. Hes got the mask on but hes very much the same character in and out of the suit. Theres not a lot hes trying to hide, if anything hes trying to prove himself to the rest of the Avengers and trying to prove that hes not a bad guy. Hes a likeable guy and he wants to be liked.

Marvel.com: Youve voiced Shiro in Voltron Legendary: Defender. While Shiro is a born leader, Scott was pretty much thrown into the action. How does that manifest itself in the way you approach voicing Marvels Ant-Man?

Josh Keaton: It helped the process that I wasnt as familiar with the character as I have been with other superheroes that Ive played. Shiro is larger so theres a physicality that I get into when voicing him, and Ant-Man is more like an everyman. There are definitely some parallels between the characterstheres a huge amount of loyalty that you can find in both. Its really more of a mental place to get into, rather than physically preparing to get into the role.

Marvel.com: With these shorts you get a quick but concise look into Scott Langs world. What do you think fans will like most about these shorts?

Josh Keaton: One of the things that I really love about the shorts is the fact thatmuch like the fact that he can shrink and growhis problems and the enemies that he faces also shrink and grow. I mean, hes fighting this massive force of nature in one, and then in another one hes fighting the exterminator thats going to kill his ant buddies. Its just a run of the mill exterminator that is just as much of a supervillain to his ant buddies as a much bigger supervillain would be to the rest of the world. He still has that loyalty to his little buddies that he does to humanity.

Marvel.com: Wasp is clearly superior when it comes to plan of attack against enemies, do you think Scotts faltering helps his character?

Josh Keaton: Absolutely. Hes able to poke fun at himself. He knows that hes still kind of figuring stuff out, things are going to go wrong and he just kind of deals with it. Theres definitely a relaxed-ness to him, even under fire. Theres even a little bit of crossover with Spider-Man, theres that humor that comes out under fire and Scotts always down to make the joke.

Marvel.com: Yellowjacket ruining kids science projects is the ultimate in villainy, do you think Scott has a more difficult time fighting the bad guys or helping out Cassie with her homework?

Josh Keaton: How much more evil can you get than messing up kids science projects? I think its a little bit of both. I have two young kids and I barely have time, so if I had to add fighting supervillains to my schedule, I dont know how Id get it all done.

Marvel.com: What would you like to say to the fans wholl be tuning in this weekend?

Josh Keaton: Thanks for watching, thanks for supporting Marvel and everyone who worked so hard to make these!

Man Shocked To Find Cockroach Infestation In His BMW – WLWT Cincinnati

Honolulu, HI

You’ve heard that BMWs pack a ton of horsepower under the hood – but how about a pack of cockroaches?

“I noticed these things crawling out of the crack between the car frame and the hood.” says Hawaii resident Blake Howell.

A creepy crawly scene is what Howell found in his BMW after driving home from Kona International Airport.

Once home, he grabbed a bottle of insecticide as quick as he could.

“It was incredible. I opened up the hood and they kept coming out and I kept spraying,” said Howell. “There had to have been a thousand bug corpses in the driveway and we washed it down into the gutter.”

Howell is not sure how the roaches got there. He says he just cleaned his car and doesn’t eat inside of it. But, Howell does have a theory. Before leaving on a five-day trip, Howell parked his car under a tree in the parking lot of Kona International Airport.

“We were driving around that parking lot for 10 minutes and finding nothing. We found this spot and now we know why it was available.”

Professional exterminators tell Island News they’ve never seen a car infestation like this.

Ralph Pascual suggests if anyone finds themselves in a similar situation – call the experts.

“Because they may harbor somewhere deep inside, where you’re not going to get them.” says Pascual.

Blake didn’t go that route. And he’s still finding roach corpses to this day.

“I joked with somebody that if they had actually been in the interior I probably would have had to set the thing on fire.” laughed Howell. “At this point when you’ve seen what I saw, every surface I look at I see bugs, so. I’m definitely paranoid being inside it.”

D.C.’s Department of General Services is responsible for maintaining school buildings. The agency did not respond toWUSA9’srequests for comment.

Rat poison stations are present around the exterior of the school.

A staff member said exterminators were working in the building Monday after complaints by alumni. The staffer said a pest control contractor visits the school bi-weekly throughout the year.

Students told reporter Scott Broom they have seen roaches and mice, but do not consider the problem out of control.

Falmouth restaurant ordered shut down because of cockroach infestation – Cape Cod Times (subscription)

Board of Health ordered Gourmet Garden shut down for however long it would take management to clean the place up and get rid of the cockroaches.

FALMOUTH Anyone with a hankering for Chinese, Japanese or Thai cuisine wont be able to satisfy it at a well-known restaurant on Main Street in Falmouth.

On Tuesday, the Board of Health ordered Gourmet Garden shut down for however long it would take management to clean the place up and get rid of the cockroaches.

Owner-manager Annie Shang tacked a sign on the door Wednesday saying the restaurant had closed for yearly maintenance.Shang told the Times early Wednesday afternoon that she expected to be able to open Thursday, but that wont happen.

The towns assistant health agent Mallory Langler went to the restaurant at 3 p.m. Wednesday to conduct an inspection but didnt go forward with it because it was clear the restaurant wasnt going to meet minimum requirements, she said.

Shang did not return a call from the Times after Langler left the restaurant.

During its meeting Tuesday, the board decided to close Gourmet Garden until the owner had contracts with a certified consultant on how to maintain restaurant standards or a ServSafe representative to train staff in their native language. The restaurant was also required to update the contract with its pest control service to weekly treatments and has to pass a Board of Health inspection.

I think if the place was immaculate, we’d be having a different conversation,board member Diana Molloy said. This is something within your control.

Gourmet Garden was opened by Shang in September.

We first started talking about it at the end of April, and the health agent has been back a number of times,board member John Waterbury said Wednesday. We thought we had things under control, but then they slipped.

An April 20 complaint from a customer who was seated at one of the hibachi grills and saw a roach crawl out from the grill side of the countertriggered the focus on Gourmet Garden, Langler said.

Our inspection found lots of cleanliness issues and a chronic cockroach infestation, Langler said. If you have a very clean area, theres not much to keep them there.

Gourmet Garden was given 72 hours to correct violations. It was cleaned up sufficiently to avoid an ordered closure after the April complaint.

According to the written report provided to the Board of Health on Tuesday, the April inspection, even after the cleanup, still revealed some problems that needed addressing.

There was still uncovered food in the prep fridge and broken floor tiles that needed to be fixed, the report said. Nymph/young cockroaches were seen in the basement.

Health agents periodically returned over the next few months. A recent inspection turned up the same old problems.

There was an inspection on June 21, and they were found to have declined again, Langler said. There are closed indefinitely until they can satisfy the requirements set by the Board of Health. It could be a day or as long as it takes. Its up to them.

Langler conducted the June 21 inspection.

Cleanliness in the restaurant has declined again, she wrote in her report.There is visible food waste and oil throughout the kitchen and basement.

There were German cockroaches seen throughout the kitchen and basement, and multiple code violations throughout the restaurant, Langler wrote.

In addition to the restaurant, the building houses apartments. In their report to the Board of Health, department personnel wrote that they were told by the owner there had been continuous push-back from some tenants and the landlord regarding access by exterminators to the rental units.

Without access to these areas and proper consistent cleanliness in the restaurant, the issue will never go away, according to the report.

Progress seen in Stonington rat-removal efforts in Millan Terrace area – The Westerly Sun

PAWCATUCK The rat population has decreased dramatically at a home found to be infested a few weeks ago, health officials said Friday.

Ryan McCammon, supervisor of environmental health for the Ledge Light Health District, which replaced the towns health department in late April, said the town was working with Terrance Holbrook, who co-owns the house at 1 Milan Terrace with Ronald Kutz. Holbrooks sister, Rebecca Holbrook, also resides at the home. In April, police received complaints about rats on the property, McCammon said. About June 1, Ledge Light issued a public health order for a licensed exterminator to assess the home, take steps to eradicate the rats, and eliminate items that attract rats, such as debris, bird feeders and standing water.

Griggs & Browne, a licensed exterminator from Waterford, was hired for abatement work and had removed about 50 dead rats from the property as of June 9, McCammon said.

On June 9, McCammon and First Selectman Rob Simmons held a public meeting for area residents at the police station to go over preventive and abatement measures since the rats were spreading into surrounding neighborhoods.

On June 12, McCammon said he went door to door in the surrounding neighborhoods, including Frank Street, homes nearby on Broad Street, and Swan Street, to pass out information.

We canvassed the entire neighborhood so everyone has my card, he said.

McCammon reported Wednesday that Griggs & Browne has been visiting the home every three or four days to check the traps.

Last week, they went out to check the bait stations and there were no rats, so the population of rats over the last couple of weeks has been coming down, McCammon said.

Rats can breed quickly and the decrease could be simply an indication of a gestation period before the next round of rats, he cautioned.

To help with the removal of debris at the home, the Town of Stonington has provided a dumpster, which McCammon said has been filled and emptied at least once and possibly twice.

The town is committed to keep sending the dumpsters out there until we get the debris picked up, he said.

On Friday afternoon, McCammon reported he had met with Terrance Holbrook that morning and observed progress in the cleanup of the property.

I was happy to see that the carport area, which is just outside the house, had been cleared of all debris and one of the rooms inside the house had been cleared out and they were in the process of working on the rest of the areas, he said.

Fridays report from Griggs & Brown showed no rat activity inside the house and moderate activity outside the house, he said.

They didnt see any rats this time but they did see that some of the bait had been eaten and theres also the possibility that chipmunks or other things got into it, he said. Im glad to see were not getting as much activity at the property.

McCammon also said he hadnt received any reports of rat sightings from neighbors in the last week.

I talked to two people in the last week who both said they had seen rats in previous weeks but hadnt seen any in the last week, he said. Thats good but it doesnt necessarily mean theyre completely eliminated.

The town will continue to work with the property owner to expedite the clearing of debris, especially in the homes interior, he said.

I think weve turned a corner with this and weve been able to get a lot of the debris, McCammon said. Were not done yet, but its a really good first step.

Area Chinese and Mexican restaurants among 30+ in Florida forced to close after health inspections – WPTV.com

A Chinese restaurant in Hobe Sound and a Mexican place in Port St. Lucie were among more than 30 restaurants that were forced to close after state health inspectors visited unannounced.

Man Li Chinese Restaurant on SE Bridge Road in Hobe Sound had to temporarily close its doors when a state inspector noticed dozens of rodent droppings during a June 21 visit.

The restaurant was also cited for less severe violations including soil buildup on the kitchen floors and sanitizing solution that was found to be not at the proper strength.

A day later when the inspector stopped by for a follow-up inspection, there were still several droppings and soil buildup on the kitchen floor, according to the report.

After the droppings were cleaned up, the restaurant was allowed to reopen.

The restaurant manager tells WPTV that roof work at an adjacent business gave the rodents access to his business and that an exterminator was called as soon as the issue was detected.

Fiesta Mexicana on NW Selvitz Road in Port St. Lucie had to be shut down on June 22 after an inspector cited the Mexican restaurant for 18 violations, including three high priority ones.

Nearly two dozen roaches were spotted on the wall near the prep table and under the reach-in cooler. There were issues with meats not being kept cool enough, leading the inspector to issue a stop-sale order.

The inspection report also mentions that a black, green mold-like substance was found around the soda dispensing nozzles and in the sink.

A day later during the follow up inspection, just three minor violations remained and the restaurant reopened.

Houston couple claim they were bitten by bed bugs while watching movie at Dunvale AMC – Chron.com

By Fernando Ramirez, Chron.com / Houston Chronicle

A Houston couple are claiming their house became infested with bed bugs after the pests allegedly hitched a ride with them from an AMC movie theater.

Anthony VanDuyn said he and his wife attended a Friday showing of “All Eyez on Me” at the AMC Studio 30 on Dunvale when he began to feel itchy.

“I’m sitting there scratching my arms,”VanDuyn said. “My wife thought it was an allergic reaction. I’ve been through bed bugs more than once. We got up, walked out.”

VanDuyn said right as he got to AMC’s customer help desk, a bed bug fell off of him and onto the floor.

Houston couple claim they were bitten by bed bugs while watching movie at Dunvale AMC

“I kindly warned the guy in front of us and he stepped on it,” VanDuyn said, noting that he had managed to take a video of the bug, seen above. “Long story short, the manager took our claim and even had us sign a piece of paper. We had to strip our clothes, my wife had to throw away her purse and my phone case for my new iPhone.”

In a statement to Chron.com, AMC said it was “made aware of the report” and “brought in a third-party pest control expert to conduct an inspection, which found zero evidence of bed bugs at AMC Studio 30.”

“This is an issue AMC takes very seriously,” continued the statement. “Any guest report results in a third-party inspection of the suspected area, and, if evidence is found, it undergoes immediate treatment.”

STUDY: Houston is among the most bed bug-infested spots in the nation

VanDuyn said the last time he dealt with bed bugs was over a year ago, and now the same symptoms have begun to occur in his household.

“My hands and arms are getting it the worst,” VanDuyn said. “I called an exterminator, he was just out here yesterday and found nothing, but said he would keep following up.”

“I hope one way or another something can happen,” VanDuyn said. “Me and my wife are sitting here with this at home now. We’re just sitting here playing the waiting game.”
