In California, where almost everything is considered toxic, and is therefore regulated or banned by the government, there’s a price to pay. Bay area KRON brings us news that the North Branch Berkeley Public library has been closed down due to the presence of bedbugs in the restrooms, computer areas and reading areas of the facility. Possibly to blame is transport of these critters on University of California, Berkeley students, who have been suffering chronic problems with bed bug infestation in their dorms.
One wonders how this problem will be addressed with the limited arsenal of insecticides available there, and in light of the fact that bedbugs have pretty good resistance to these measures.
Maybe bagging up the library 😉 or heating the interior above 110 degrees F will get the job done. Bedbugsextermination.net provides some information on eradication which might benefit the People of Berkeley, and others who must fight the hordes of invading insects.
