Bed Bugs Are Everywhere… Even 911 Dispatch Centers.

People tend to think of bed bugs as being pests that are typically found in bedrooms. But we’re seeing more and more stories about people finding them in schools, in libraries, and even on public transit buses. Your NJ pest control experts came across a story about bed bugs infesting a 911 dispatch center in the Bronx, and even we were surprised at that one.

A Lengthy Infestation That Was Largely Ignored

Most people would assume that if bed bugs were found at a 911 dispatch center, the problem would be corrected right away. But that’s not what happened in the Bronx. In fact, employees reported that the problem went on for at least two weeks, but NYPD refused to do anything about it.

Bed bugs can multiply rapidly once they get established, so the call center’s lack of action only made the problem worse and more expensive to treat.

It didn’t take long for the bed bugs to spread. What started in a training room on the sixth floor quickly moved to other areas of the facility, including in the vendor and lobby areas. Steaming treatments did nothing but drive the bugs to other parts of the building.
