Bed Bug Infestations Present at Dormitories Nationwide
The bed bug pandemic is sweeping across the nation infecting colleges from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans. As stated earlier, this resurgence is greatly attributed to dormitories being the perfect breeding ground for bed bugs; a multitude of hosts and cluttered areas that experience a lot of hustle and bustle on a daily basis.
According to various campus newspapers as well as national newspapers, bed bugs have been reported in many campuses across the nation, including:
San Diego State University
George Washington University
NYU (On Campus & Off Campus Housing)
University of Florida
Texas A&M University
Ohio State University
John Jay College of Criminal Justice
University of Central Missouri
The scariest thing is that these are just some of the colleges where bed bug infestations have been reported! The reality is that even if you don’t see your college listed here, it does not mean that the college is bed bug free. Another thing to keep in mind is, just because there was an infestation, doesn’t mean that these facilities currently are infested; however, college campuses tend to have many international students that travel frequently so there is a good chance dormitories can become re-infested!
