Objection! Bedbugs invade Bronx DA's office

Objection! Bedbugs invade Bronx DA's office
We’ll say this about bedbugs. They’ll terrorize legal counsel in any borough.

After invading the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office last week, the little bloodsuckers have made their way into the Bronx, reports Gothamist.

Once again, a bedbug sniffing dog was brought in to go through the offices after city employees reportedly complained about repeated bites.

Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) employees were reportedly told to keep mum about the official cause of the dog’s visit, despite the fact that it was clearly a Belkin Environmental Services-clad worker guiding the bug-sniffing pooch, a tipster told Gothamist.

Last week, inspectors fumigated the Brooklyn offices of the city's corporation counsel after a bedbug-sniffing dog discovered the nasty pests among some files at 350 Jay St.
