ORISKANY – More than two months after the initial outbreak, MetLife in Oriskany is once again dealing with the presence of bed bugs in the office.
The company is now asking employees to get in touch with the company Orkin for a free inspection of their homes if they feel they may have a problem there. When the bed bugs were initially confirmed at MetLife back in September, the company said they believeD the bed bugs were being brought into the office because once the office had already been treated and cleared, they found them again.
Employees were warned to keep their bags off the floor, keep their work areas clean and to inspect their belongings before entering the building.
A notice was sent out to employees notifying them that another bed bug was found yesterday, and asking them to have their homes inspected free of charge if needed.
An inspection at MetLife tomorrow will include bed bug detection dogs.
