It turns out that internet search giants Google are just the same as everyone else, as the company has admitted that they have a bed bug problem in one of their offices in New York.
As reported from Gather, the infestation of bugs were discovered by a Google employee, who decided to share her thoughts on the matter on social networking website Twitter. This is the message she posted, before it was swiftly removed:
“Jeepers i am not immune from the bedbug epidemic. bedbugs have been found at work.”
As a result of this becoming public knowledge, Google has calmed the situation by delivering a message of their own:
“Like several other businesses in New York City, we’ve discovered bedbugs in a small area of our office. We have notified employees and are taking steps to treat the affected area.”
It is fair to say that bedbugs are a common problem anywhere you go, but it is still a surprise to see that a company as big as Google are having problems with them, and that they were discovered inside one of their office buildings.
