Bedbugs continued their summer-long invasion of New York businesses by taking over a small portion of Google’s posh Manhattan office.

A spokeswoman for Google confirmed Friday that bedbugs had found their way into the search-engine giant’s sprawling space in Chelsea. “Like several other businesses in New York City, we’ve discovered bedbugs in a small area of our office,” the spokeswoman said. “We have notified employees and are taking steps to treat the affected area.”

The offices on Ninth Avenue are famous for their free gourmet cafeteria, snack stations, scooters and readily available Lego sets for employees.

News of Google’s bedbug outbreak first spread Thursday when a person who claims to work for the company posted a message on a Twitter account saying, “jeepers i am not immune from the bedbug epidemic. bedbugs have been found at work.” The message was sent by a person using the Twitter user name pammy5 and their bio stated: “I do marketing things at Google.” The account has since been deleted.

The bedbug outbreak at Google makes it the latest business in New York City to suffer an an infestation this summer. Other bedbug victims have included Time Warner Inc., the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, the Empire State Building, a triage room at Kings County Hospital in Brooklyn, a Times Square movie theater and several retail stores in Manhattan.
