Bedbugs in Penn Quarter?

Roll Call reported yesterday about the ongoing bedbug scare at the IRS.

IRS headquarters are in Penn Quarter at 11th and Constitution.

The reported bed bug was found on an employee's clothing.  The IRS has since hired exterminators to sweep the building.

But bedbugs travel on people's clothing.  Meaning if downtown government buildings have them, then workers will likely travel home with them--and many government workers live in Penn Quarter.  And condos make it very easy for bedbugs to travel from apartment to apartment, as New Yorkers have recently seen. 

Is Penn Quarter ripe for a bedbug infestation?  Are the condo and apartment buildings ready to respond?
