More bed bugs found on UK campus

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

For the second time in the last week, officials at the University of Kentucky have reported a sighting of bed bugs in a campus building.

On Friday, officials say someone found a dead bed bug at a computer kiosk inside the William T. Young Library.

At that time, the kiosk was quarantined.

On Monday, UK officials say a live bed bug, and another dead one, were found at the kiosk. Exterminators were brought in Monday for a treatment to get rid of bed bugs in the library.

Officials are now inspecting the entire library, to see if any more bed bugs are found.

Last week, someone found bed bugs in a lounge of the UK Student Center addition. A heat treatment to kill the bed bugs was done there Friday.
