New bed bug infestation at UAF residence halls

Bed bugs have been found at some University of Alaska Fairbanks residences. According to a letter to the UAF issued Wednesday by vice chancellors, bed bugs have been confirmed in several apartments in Harwood Hall, and in single units at Garden Apartments and Hess Village. It’s believed that the bugs were introduced via furniture brought in from off campus. The university has hired an exterminator to treat the affected buildings, and to inspect and potentially preventatively treat other campus housing. The UAF letter said exterminators will inform residents of effected buildings about safety precautions.
