Bed Bugs Attack Employees in Lower Manhattan

It appears that bed bugs have once again taken a bite out of workers in the Big Apple.  Two employees, who work in the Department of Financial Services building, say that bed bugs have been biting them at their workplace report the Daily News on November 14, 2013.  According to reports, internal memos show that the bed bug problem is not a new one in the building, yet spokesman Matt Anderson said “there’s no evidence the building is overrun by insects.”

Despite the fact that bed bugs are typically nocturnal, once bed bugs hitchhike their way into an office building they will bite employees whenever they see fit.  Depending on when a bed bug received its last blood meal, they may feed for a short period of time or a longer period of time.  Additionally, the amount of blood that a bed bug consumes is directly related to the amount of eggs that a female bed bug will be able to produce.  The more blood consumed, the more eggs she will produce.  Given the fact that a single female bed bug can lay up to 500 eggs in her short lifetime, it is easy to see how a small infestation can quickly grow into a large infestation either in a home or in an office building.

Bed bug infestations should always be treated rigorously so that they do not have the opportunity to spread from place to place.  In New Jersey, residents and businesses should hire a Monmouth County NJ exterminator with experience in handling the bloodsucking pests.  For fast and professional service, contact Allison Pest Control.
