Bed Bugs On Campus
FAIRBORN -- A dorm at Wright State University is dealing with some unwanted guests: bed bugs.
Wright State says workers with residential services were doing routine dorm inspections right before some student athletes moved in last week and they found a couple bed bugs in one of the rooms. Exterminators say the bugs are a growing problem at universities across the country.
Wright State freshman Brandyn Simpson is all settled in to his dorm on campus, ready for the school year. He lives across the street from Laurel Hall where a couple bed bugs were discovered in a room last week.
"It's kind if scary because you don't know if the person from last year was clean. It makes me want to keep up on my hygiene just thinking about it," he said.
That's why Brandyn checked his room for the pesky critters before he got too comfortable, which is exactly what exterminators recommend you do if you're moving your college student in this week, or even the next time you check into a hotel.
"What they're looking for is visible evidence of staining, which is basically black spots on the fabric," said Jay Moran with A Abel Exterminating.
Exterminators say the bed bug problem has been on the rise for years, hitting the Dayton area hard beginning in 2010. Wright State sealed off the affected room and blasted it with 130 degree heat for six hours to kill the bugs. The university also routinely has an exterminator comes in as a precaution.
"Universities across the country are facing the same battles. We're much better now at getting the bed bugs out and keeping them out. It's not a surprise anymore to find these kinds of things," said Moran.
Exterminators also recommend sending your college student to school with white or light colored sheets to make it easier to detect bed bugs.
