Facilities Needs at University Center and Wabash Building

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs and what you need to know!
Bed bugs are a growing, worldwide pest problem. In past decades, bed bug infestations have been isolated to areas mainly outside of the United States. However, over the past several years, these hearty little pests have emerged on the scene here in the U.S., spreading throughout hotels, apartments, college residence halls, health care facilities, day care centers, movie theaters, clothing stores and office buildings – virtually any place that has upholstered or carpeted surfaces. 

Bed bugs feed on the blood of humans, although there is no evidence that they are capable of transmitting any diseases. They don’t cause serious illness but can cause discomfort by leaving tiny bite marks and itchy rashes on the body.
