According to an article on www.capitalnewyork.com, WSJ Deputy Managing Editor informed employees that “…on Friday the facilities department received a report of a bedbug sighting in the video area of the 6th floor."

An inspection using a bed bug detecting dog found a bed bug infestation "in part of the video area and in part of the main 6th floor conference room," the Capital reported. These areas were treated by a pest management professional.

During the past few years, other venerable New York institutions including Time Warner,  Penguin, Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center have also been infested.
