Bedbug sweep is complete — Campbell, Brown cleared

The Brooklyn Paper

Bedbugs in Metrotech might possibly be the least disgusting thing about Forest City Ratner.

Cosmo, the legendary bedbug-detecting Jack Russell terrier, sniffed out our Community Newspaper Group offices in Downtown on Saturday morning — just one day after our in-building neighbors at National Grid were infiltrated by the resilient insects.

The heroic pup is trained by his handler, Michael Loughnane of Synergy Scents, to search every crack and crevice for the notorious blood-sucking mites. He was called in by Forest City Ratner as a preemptive move after the bedbugs were spotted in the National Grid annex to 1 Metrotech Center, also known as the Community Newspaper Building.


NoLandGrab: The creepy insects are probably just trying to learn some new blood-sucking techniques from the experts, who, as Norman Oder reports today, have come up with a new scheme for bleeding the taxpayers.
