102108fogger.jpgBug bombs—or 'total release foggers,' as they say in the extermination biz—have caused at least eight serious explosions in New York City apartments in the past several years, including one last month in Manhattan that hospitalized six people. And besides the explosions, the bombs have also given people respiratory problems, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, according to a report by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Now the state Department of Environmental Conservation will classify foggers as a restricted-use product in New York State, meaning that only certified pesticide applicators can buy and use them. Better stock up! Oh, and here's a fun fact; the Times says that when the bug bombs first became popular after WWII, each bomb contained enough mist to “de-bug” about 10 to 15 average-size homes.
