Bed bugs hit CBS offices in New York City

Nellie Andreeva of the blog says she received a tip that CBS’s New York City offices were infested with bed bugs.

She writes,

… a couple of leased-out floors in satellite CBS offices in New York housing internal audit and CBS syndication sales executives have been affected by what a CBS representative described as ‘mild cases’ of bedbug infestation. Professionals have been called in and the offices are being cleaned.

Remember that “cleaning” alone does not eliminate a bed bug infestation, and that bedbugs are not a sign of poor hygiene.

One Deadline commenter quipped “Sounds like somebody went shopping at Hollister.” (The SoHo Hollister store went public with its bed bug issues this week.)

Unfortunately, the Deadline comments show the ignorance about bed bugs which abounds: just to set the record straight, bedbugs do not “only come out at night,” or in the dark. Although they prefer to feed in the wee small hours in a dark room, they will bite in a well-lit office during daytime hours, if they must.

Update: CNET more or less confirmed the CBS story here.
