New York City's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene has a problem -- and it sounds more like one for which it might issue a citation than find in its own backyard.
The department said on Friday that its new $316 million headquarters in the borough of Queens has been infested with bed bugs.
Inspectors have "found a group of bed bugs living in one area of one floor of our department's Long Island City building," the Health Department said in a statement.
"We have already taken steps to address the problem, including conducting additional inspections, vacuuming, steam-cleaning and applying small amounts of pesticide."
The New York Daily News reported late Thursday that staffers at the Health Department were "freaked out" after several weeks of bed bug sightings.
The vampiric insects are difficult to eradicate, and areas where they are spotted require extensive - and expensive - fumigation to completely get rid of them.
"Employees were given copies of the department's own bed bug information pamphlet on Wednesday and told to declutter their desks and put their belongings in plastic bags," an unnamed source told the newspaper.
Bed bugs were common throughout most of the 20th century, but were believed to have been all but eradicated from the United States by 1995. But they have made a dramatic resurgence.

Diversity is our Strength!
How typical of this corrupt government.
They Lord over America with haughty pride and power
from their tyranny .... but cannot even keep
their own house clean.
Yes, bugs and crazy people in the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
It’s like the “Democratic Party”, full of nazists, communists and muslims.
LOL! Irony at its finest!
I’d almost wager there are a bunch of ‘rats who work there, too. The place is probably lousy with ‘em.
Probably mans someone who works there brought them in with them. I would look for someone working in that area, their home is probably infested with the things.
I love catchy headlines. Fire Station destroyed in blaze. Brain eating Amoeba died of starvation but is safely removed from 0bama’s head.
“Diversity is our Strength!”
The Big Sh*ty may be described as a hive of human bedbugs, sucking money and freedom from the American Body Politic thanks to NYC and Chicago being the lair of communism in America.
You say a government building in NYC is infested with blood sucking parasites? tell me something I don’t know.
HAHAHAHAHAHA... they deserve them!
