Blood-sucking insects are said to have invaded a growing number of New York City landmarks and the UN is busy battling with this bedbug infestation.
The latest assault is reportedly the international organization as the pests are said to have emerged at places like the Empire State Building and Bloomingdale's before attacking the city's center of international diplomacy on the East Side of Manhattan.
The presence of bedbugs in furniture in the basement of the Dag Hammarskjold Library is said to have been confirmed by the bedbug-sniffing dog. This library is the office for the team, overseeing the U. N. headquarters' $1.9 billion renovation project.
The UN said, “This furniture has been moved to a part of the building not occupied by staff to facilitate fumigation. Bedbug infestations have been found in many public and commercial buildings throughout New York City indicating a worsening problem”.
New York was said to be the most bedbug-infested urban center in the United States. This claim is said to have been made by the pest extermination Company Terminex, in the month of August.
Some other countries following the row were Philadelphia, Detroit, Cincinnati and Chicago.
