Employees of the ‘Wall Street Journal’ were informed on Jan. 11th that bed bugs had taken residence in the The Journal's offices inside the News Corp. building in Midtown.
According to an article on www.capitalnewyork.com, WSJ Deputy Managing Editor informed employees that “…on Friday the facilities department received a report of a bed bug sighting in the video area of the 6th floor."
An inspection using a bed bug detecting dog found a bed bug infestation "in part of the video area and in part of the main 6th floor conference room," the Capital reported. These areas were treated by a pest management professional.
During the past few years, other venerable New York institutions including Time Warner, Penguin, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center have also been infested.
