Fearing the costs of combatting bedbugs, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternity is taking out insurance against an infestation.

Sigma Phi Epsilon apparently doesn't have a problem yet. But, with more than 75 people living in the house, the pests could migrate onto the premises.

The university has been battling bedbugs for several weeks. The pests have been detected in more than 50 dorm rooms.

Bedbug problems also have been reported at two other Nebraska colleges.

Bedbugs were reported in a residence hall at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, in south-central Nebraska. And a bedbug problem also was reported last week in two rooms at Chadron State College in the Nebraska Panhandle.
