A luxury car dealership in Manhattan has become the latest victim of the bed bug infestation.

The Mercedes Benz dealership on the West Side says it recently discovered the pests in a storage area.

According to a spokesperson, the area was closed off and exterminators were called.

The dealership says there was no disruption to customer service.

This is the latest in a string of high profile infestations to bug the city.

In addition to countless apartments, hotels, and retail locations, the pests recently hit a Times Square movie theater, the Empire State building, and even the Brooklyn District Attorney's office.

The city is fighting back with an initiative aimed at cracking down on the bloodsuckers.
