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.

Are bedbugs hard to kill by regular extermination methods? Spraying fumigating etc?
Global warming, Bush’s fault.
exterminators will use hot, dry steam to kill bed bugs in places you touch; chemicals are used to kill bed bugs in other spots by flushing the bugs out for steaming.
How to Kill Bed Bugs
I am amused when I read the bed bug articles (but not too much having been bitten recently in some motels). Bed bugs are easily eradicated (killed) by using insecticides which have been banned for use by the general public. A few squirts in their hiding place and the end up dead.
However will we get rid of them today. I suspect not. The PC crowd has banned all effective insecticides, so we will continue to be bitten by the ancient pest which was almost wiped out years ago in this country.
Is this a great country or what??
This is a chronic New York City problem.
About a month ago I heard of a great new growth industry.
Some guy will sell you and send you things like lice, bed bugs, crabs, then it is up to you where you may deposit them.
Say and ex-wifes restroom seat for crabs or bed bugs in her couch or bed.
About a week after I heard of this they had to close down one of the N.Y. City Victoria Secret and Ambercrombie stores do to bed bugs. I figure it was fat ugly NOW hags.
Gotta love it.
Ok so it’s sick but ya gots to admit there may be one or two folks in your lifetime you’d like to , well never mind.
I would have thought that ‘dry steam’ was somewhat of an oxymoron.
I read recently one should hire a professional exterminator every 6 months or so to treat the mattress. Simply washing your sheets weekly won’t do.
I don’t know. I’m not allergic and don’t give a crap.
I get itchy just looking at that dude.
Yea, I guess a bedbug and a crab is very similar.
How long have you been constipated? Isn’t it uncomfortable?
Did I miss something?
>>Im not allergic and dont give a crap.<<
I know dysentery is a tough road to go down and I’ve heard that constipation was equally tough because there’s no way to dodge the, “You’re full of it” comments.
Have you been drinking early? We’re talking bedbugs here. I was trying to be polite in my post.
My point was that if I don’t see it, and am not harmed by something, its not a concern.
Maybe I’m missing something with our conversation. If so, my bad.
Needless to say I got a new room, but it was one of the most disturbing experiences in my life...not the most horrific, but certainly disturbing...just knowing they lay in wait for you to go to sleep, then come out in the darkness to feast on your blood. I felt like Omega Man.
Wish I could have been there to help comfort them.
Another good reason to close the Mexican Border.
Thanks. I am still wondering about the size of bedbugs, how big are they compared to a grain of rice?
I’m just teasing. One of my quirks.
