Bed Bugs Crawling In Law Firms

bedbugs crawling, law offices, bedbug.com

Looks like even lawyers have to hire someone to defend themselves against bed bugs. Winston and Strawn’s offices were discovered to have an infestation in their MetLife building, located at 200 Park Avenue in Manhattan. A spokesperson from Winston told us that all inquires about the bed bugs were being referred to the building’s landlord, real estate giant Tishman Speyer.

And the question lingered: “are bed bugs crawling around the whole MetLife building?” Tishman Speyer did not return phone calls, and this was unanswered. If bed bugs are dispersed throughout the building, this would mean that three other law firms would be confronted with this itchy situation…

Representatives from three other firms, Gibson Dunn, Greenberg Traurig, and Hunton & Williams were contacted. Responses are still pending. A spokesperson from Greenberg Trauig said she was unaware of the problems, but would investigate the situation. Although, even if the bed bugs were localized to only a few floors, one has to think the entire building is at risk.

The following was a firm-wide alert by Winston:

Subject: IMPORTANT: Thursday, September 16 THIS IS NOT A TEST

To all personnel of the NY office: As we informed you yesterday, we have bed bugs in our office space. After a complete inspection of our office space last evening, which confirmed that our infestation is throughout our space, we have decided to implement liberal leave today, Thursday, September 16th. Anyone who has the ability to work remotely has the option to do so. Administrative staff who would like to stay home may do so by using a sick/personal day, and should call the absence hotline or their supervisor. If you are working remotely and have a need for administrative support of any kind, please contact Kathryn Schwyzer. Kathryn will be in the office, but can also be reached on her mobile phone at [redacted]. Further updates will be sent to you via this emergency broadcast system.

A spokesperson from Tishman Speyer  (landlords of the MetLife building) did end up responding the following: “We are working closely with the tenant to treat the problem aggressively and eradicate it quickly.” Tishman seemed to be working to keep the problem localized to Winston & Strawn’s floors, without panicking the entire building.

A major problem with bed bugs at law offices is that the incident occurred during interviewing season, which is when students should be infesting the offices,not bed bugs. These students, or students parents, probably wouldn’t be such fans of their children affiliating a place that can attract bed bugs to their home. Although this stood as a problem, www.bedbug.com was an extremely beneficial and useful source, as it provides tips and products to help you protect yourself against any confrontation with bed bugs at work.

Bed Bugs and Football

Protecting your home is like a football game – and you’re always on defense. Day in and day out the dishes pile up, the toys seem to move about by themselves and laundry, seemingly of its own accord, scatters itself in the TV room, the bathroom and all over every one of your children’s bedroom floors. Your best efforts feel like a losing battle but you go on and reach for that touchdown that is a clean house. Here’s the thing: no matter how clean your house, once those articles of clothing are strewn around you may have lost the game – to Bed Bugs. bed bug, football, bedbug, bedbug.com

Many people do not realize that bed bugs are excellent travelers. They’re naturally sticky and have a gift for clinging to the coat, shirt or sock that happened to be tossed aside on the floor of any given schoolroom, hotel bedroom or co-ed dormitory. They happily hang on until that one piece of attire is picked up, placed in a bag or piece of luggage and then carried to the next destination, only to sit on another floor or surface. Then all they have to do is wait – literally.

A few bed bugs, capable of laying five eggs a day over a lifetime of three to four months when feeding on blood, can patiently wait up to a year for a meal. Those bugs brought home in any bag could sit in some corner, waiting for the next piece of clothing to be dropped. They could also make a bed their new home when the dirty laundry is strewn about after a long, hard day at work or by a child who is less-than-enthusiastic about daily cleaning.

You know the offense has certain advantages and you know that you need to adjust your defensive strategy. So what can you do? Managing yourself is difficult enough with work, traveling and meetings, but with a spouse, children in school and one or more coming home from college to visit how do you stop those bed bugs from invading and infesting your home, making you and your family their next source of food and shelter and causing you untold in mental anguish and financial damages. Bedbug.com has one of the best defensive tools available for your home protection.

Bedbug.com is the only encasement manufacturer providing you with the exclusive patent pending micro-zipper-technology laundry bag for protection from bed bug infiltration. The Bedbug.com laundry bag is secure and impermeable to stop the penetration of bed bugs in fabric. A simple bag in each bedroom means no clothes with bugs on the floor. The bugs can’t get in or out. Even if one or two manage to cling to a shirt or pair of jeans they’re in the bag until laundry day – and if you wash and dry your clothes properly you’ll be doing half the work to prevent a bed bug outbreak in your home. It only works with the secure laundry bag, though. Think of it as the best defense available for your family.

Additionally, if you’re traveling for business or your child is coming home from camp or school the Bedbug.com luggage liner prevents infestation just like the laundry bags. You don’t know who was in the hotel room before you and co-ed living is always on the run and a mess but with the Bedbug.com premium luggage liner no bugs will get in or out. Traveling just became a lot safer.

The prevent-defense is your best defense. You’re busy and your family is always on the move. We all know it’s the simple things that make life easier and safer. Buckling up takes but a second. Once the exclusive Bedbug.com laundry bag is in each bedroom, the quick act of tossing your dirty clothes inside and not on the floor is a sure fire way to add another layer of protection to your lives.

No one wants to sit around with the family on football Sunday scratching those bumpy bites after a sleepless night of itching. You don’t have to. Bedbug.com has your defensive tools ready: patent pending micro-zipper laundry bag and luggage liner – for your family’s health and safety. Protect and prevent. It’s that easy.
