JERSEY CITY, NJ – Goldman Sachs may do "God''s work," but the company has a devil of a problem: Bedbugs, according to MSN Money.
Employees at the company''s new 42-story office tower in Jersey City were ordered out of the building last month as bedbug-sniffing dogs and exterminators came in to spray for the critters, the article stated.
A source connected with the Goldman office building told ABC News that spraying did, in fact, take place, but that it was a precautionary move related to a report from some employees who had dealt with bedbugs outside the office.
Exterminators told ABC News, however, that companies rarely bring in dogs and pesticides as a precautionary measure.
Bedbugs have become a big problem for New York City, which is just across the Hudson River from Goldman''s New Jersey office building, the article noted.
According to the article, bedbugs can easily move from homes to other locations in the pockets or creases of their human hosts'' clothing.
"Landlords of large apartment buildings can spend up to $80,000 to get rid of bedbugs," said Jody L. Gangloff-Kaufmann, an urban entomologist with the New York State Integrated Pest Management program at Cornell University.
