The bugs caused the evacuation of the headquarters of UN in new York.
The discovery of insects on the 34th floor of the headquarters of the UN was the cause of the emergency scale pest control, requiring the evacuation of the Department engaged in procurement for peacekeeping missions. The infection was so severe that it took 2 times desinsection of premises.
Recall that bed bugs in recent years have become a real scourge of the major cities of Europe and the USA, and one recorded case of infection of any and all objects, including fashionable business centres, hotels, cinemas.
In order to stop the spread of bed bugs made a huge effort on the part of health services, but currently these efforts are clearly insufficient. Very often the experts in pest control can carry out a full treatment from the position of owners of premises who refuse the necessary large-scale treatments, fear of losses from idle commercial real estate.
The bed bug issue has become so serious that the authorities of new York have created a special website devoted to measures to combat bed bugs and prevent infestation.
