People at work have reported an infestation but the company has not publicly addressed it. I found this bug tonight at work and I’m freaking out. I didn’t believe it at first but now I’m scared.

Bed Bug

Dear jp,
We hope you don’t work in a mattress factory or hotel.  Generally, when we get frantic requests from folks wondering if they have found a Bed Bug, it is a false alarm.  You, on the other hand, have correctly identified a Bed Bug.  We would strongly urge you to have your company deal with the matter, and until the infestation has been resolved, use extreme caution transporting things from work to home.  You might want to consider not bringing belongings like purses or jackets to work as Bed Bugs are notorious stowaways.  Good luck with this problem.
