Bedbugs reported at USAID building
Bedbugs have made their way into the highly secure federal building in Washington that houses the U.S. Agency for International Development.
USAID officials told employees this week that juvenile bedbugs were discovered in a single office at the agency's tower in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center. Signs of the bugs were not found elsewhere in the building.
Officials said that a pest control service would inspect offices and that any infected areas would be treated over the weekend. They also said USAID and the General Services Administration will continue to be proactive to prevent future bedbug activity.
The blood-feeders are not known to transmit diseases. But their bites can cause infections and allergic reactions in some people.
