NBC New York reports that the Sirius XM studios and headquarters in New York City have been fighting bed bugs:

“We received treatments here and supposedly we’re 100% bedbug-free,” a very doubtful Howard Stern lamented on his Sirius XM Radio Show Monday morning after his Midtown office building was treated by exterminators.

Stern said he came to the Sirius XM Sixth Avenue studio and headquarters this morning in a haz-mat suit — despite the fact that the studios were closed this weekend for a bedbug treatment. Photographic evidence of the haz-mat suit has not been furnished yet.

Sirius XM is on the 36th floor of 1221 Avenue of the Americas, the McGraw-Hill building.

NBC also reports that bed bugs were found in Stern’s limo, which had to be “fumigated with poison gas.”

Well, the limo should be bed bug-free now.

However, I’d like to know how the offices were treated, to render them bed bug-free in one weekend.

News reports typically report workplaces being declared “bed bug free,” days after they are treated once for bed bugs.

But they can’t all be getting heat treatment, and we’d know if entire office buildings were being tented and gassed.

I’ll bet they fumigated the limo for other reasons 😉
