Employees at the New York Department of Financial Services building, located on State Street, are complaining about bed bugs, the Daily News reports.

Senior Insurance Examiner Ademola Oluwo, told the Daily News he obtained internal agency memos showing the State Street problem wasn’t new. The complex had a bedbug problem before DFS started transferring employees there earlier this year from 25 Beaver St. while merging its banking and insurance divisions.

While saying “the health and safety of our employees is our number one priority,” DFS spokesman Matt Anderson said there’s no evidence the building is totally overrun by the dread insects.

Recently, “We've had documented cases of two bugs,” Anderson said. “We've taken extensive steps to fumigate and will continue to take whatever steps are necessary to ensure the issue is addressed."

DFS has about 1,000 employees spread out over nine floors in the building, which has other tenants as well.
