The tone of this piece is a little odd, but you know what, I support the sentiment.
We love it when Seattle tops a best-cities list. Are Seattlites fashionable? Check. Are we bookish? Sure. Are our hotels and apartments infested with bedbugs?
Not really. At least, not like the ones in Philadelphia.
We’re not in the top 15 (if a survey by a pest control company is accurate, it may well not be).
Anyway, they’re pretty aggressive about keeping bedbugs out in my building. We have posters for how to recognize bedbugs and we had a dog come in a while ago to sniff out each apartment. So as of, like February, I’m good on this front.
