Wichita State battles bed bugs in residence hall

Associated Press - January 24, 2016 12:55 pm

Wichita State University and a dormitory resident whose room is infested with bed bugs are at odds over who should pay an exterminator for a second round of treatments.

Wichita State University and a dormitory resident whose room is infested with bed bugs are at odds over who should pay an exterminator for a second round of treatments.

Freshman Londyn Bobbitt says she first found bed bugs in November. KAKE-TV (http://bit.ly/1SBSvw3) reports that her room was treated, but that she found the bugs again last week. The school began treating her room again Thursday but says she’s responsible for the $800 bill.

Wichita State housing director Scott Jensen says the pest control company is “very confident” that the bugs were eradicated.

Bobbitt insists there’s no way she brought the bed bugs out or back into her room. For now, Bobbitt says she’ll continue sleeping on her desk while fighting the university. Bed bugs live on blood.
