Bedbugs found in 54 UNL dorm rooms

UNL says the search for the pests continues.

UNL spokeswoman Kelly Bartling says the total included the discovery of two more infested rooms on Monday morning. The university has vowed to search every dorm room on campus. Bedbug problems have been reported at two other Nebraska colleges. Bedbugs were reported last week in a residence hall at the University of Nebraska at Kearney, in south-central Nebraska.

UNK Director of Residence Life Tony Earls says officials think the bedbugs were isolated to one room. A bedbug problem also was reported last week in two rooms at Chadron State College in the Nebraska Panhandle.
