Dealbreaker claims J.P. Morgan offices are fighting bed bug infestation

in bed bugs, bed bugs in the workplace

How did we miss this?

Wall Street blog Dealbreaker claimed on July 27th that New York’s J.P. Morgan office has recently been battling bed bugs:

The House of Dimon has been hit with a bedbug infestation on the 8th floor. A sales person had the problem at home and a week later the critters were spotted on the trading desk. Now JPM is bringing a specialist into the building and employees’ homes.

See the original post:  Trouble At JPMorgan – Dealbreaker.

(Dealbreaker  provides no verification of the source of this allegation.)

It’s important to remember that the person who admits to having bed bugs at home is not necessarily the same person who originally brought bed bugs into the workplace.  It’s possible they got them at work, even if the bed bugs at work were not spotted first.

The bed bug blame game is harder to win than the stockmarket.

Yeah, people ask us on a daily basis, “Who is responsible” We have seen a huge increase in the amount of bed bugs lawsuits over the past 5 years. Landlords claiming the tenant brought them in and vice versa.

Hi jeremy,

Some of the “Similar Posts” listed above after the article will likely amuse you — lawfirms are apparently commonly populated by bed bugs also. 😉
