Bed Bugs Found at Time Warner Center in New York

TVNewser has learned the human resources department of TBS Inc. has sent out an email this afternoon alerting staffers of a bed bug problem in their New York City offices at Time Warner Center — home to CNN, CNNMoney.com and other Time Warner entities.

The Time Warner Center Facilities Department advises that bed bugs have been detected in Time Warner Center. This determination was made after testing was conducted on several floors of the building.

A CNN spokesperson tells TVNewser, “the building management is addressing the issue and is taking immediate action.”

Bed bugs have been the scourge of New York for several years. In Nov. 2007, an exterminator was called to the Fox News newsroom to take care of a bed bug problem there. And last month, AgencySpy reported a New York ad agency closed due to a bed bug infestation.

The Time Warner Center Facilities Department advises that bed bugs have been detected in Time Warner Center. This determination was made after testing was conducted on several floors of the building. In response, Time Warner Facilities is working with pest control providers to address the issue in an environmentally safe manner, and during non-working hours. Generally, bed bugs do not carry or transmit disease. Information about bed bugs and their eradication is available at http://home2.nyc.gov/html/doh/downloads/pdf/vector/vector-faq1.pdf
