Library closed due to bedbugs

By David Komer

The finding of a bed bug at the city’s library, 12303 Pardee, on Friday resulted in its closing over the weekend.

The library is expected to reopen tomorrow after an inspection by the exterminator today.

Librarian Jaqueline Whinihan said it originally was thought that the problem was in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system.

Rocky Alazazi, the city’s director of building and safety, said the bed bug was found on a chair in the computer lab.

“A user in the lab felt she had been bit by something,” he said. “The (library staff) wanted to get (help) in there and find out if it spread beyond the computer lab.

“We shut down the entire building for safety issues.”

The area was treated on Friday after Orkin Pest Control was called and came out, General Foreman Guido Ulin said.

The exterminator was to bring a dog today for a sweep, the first of a monthly inspection, Ulin said.

Bed bugs are about one-quarter of an inch long and have reddish-brown, oval, flattened bodies that are mistaken for ticks or roaches. They feed at night on the blood of humans or animals.

They are known to hide in fabric and wood.
