Libraries Fight Growing Number of Bed Bug Infestations

Bed Bugs
Bed Bugs Are Taking Over Libraries

Bed bugs are a growing problem in many different businesses in the NYC area. These pests can be found in hotels, movie theaters, schools, offices, subway cars, hospitals and almost any other public place. Our NYC bed bug specialists want you to know just how widespread this problem is becoming in our area and throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Library Pests

A public library system in Ontario was recently forced to close 14 branches due to bed bugs. The Essex County Library System in the southwestern part of the province made the decision to shut down all branches as a proactive step when bed bugs were found in the Learnington branch library. After inspections were conducted at other branches, two more libraries were found to have these pests as well.

As a result, all branch libraries will remain closed until these bed bug infestations are eradicated. In the meantime, the library system doesn’t want members bringing borrowed books and other materials back yet.

This incident shows just how much of a disruption bed bugs can be. Business owners in the NYC area should be on the lookout for these tiny reddish-brown pests and call for professional help at the first sign of trouble.
