Fox 5 Local News has asked Stern Environmental Group to sit down with them sometime in the near future and discuss the problems bed bugs cause, how bed bug infestations are increasing, and what new bed bug extermination treatments are available.
Their parent company Fox News in New York City has recently been infiltrated by bed bugs. Usually unflappable news anchors were feeling the strain. Warren Vandeveer, senior VP for operations and engineering, said they didn’t realize the extent of the problem until an employee “caught a bug and showed it to us.” Experts identified it as Cimex Lectularius, the common bed bug.
Bed bugs are expert hitchhikers and despite an exterminator’s efforts to eliminate them from the newsroom, they kept returning. In an effort to nail down the source of the infestation, the homes of 20 Fox employees were inspected. In one employee’s home, Vandeveer said the exterminator found “the worst infestation he had seen in 25 years in the business.”
You only need to go through the “bed bug nightmare” once to be on the lookout for new, more effective solutions to bed bug problems. The Wall Street Journal has recently interviewed Douglas Stern about bed bugs in the New York City metro region.
Douglas Stern is quickly becoming the sought out expert on bed bug extermination and now Fox 5 Local News is interested too. Maybe the Fox News headquarters in New York City should ask Douglas Stern about Cryonite, the new freezing treatment for bed bug extermination for their own problem!
