Bed bugs still plaguing GWU dorms
The George Washington University has recorded six cases of bed bugs in five student dormitories so far this semester, GWU’s the Hatchet reported Saturday.
GWU officials launched an investigation after students noticed bite marks that remained on their bodies even as the weather grew colder. Officials spray-treated the rooms twice during a two-week period, GWU spokeswoman Michelle Sherrard told the Hatchet. Students were allowed to remain in their residences during that period, although they were prohibited from entering their rooms during the four hours immediately after the treatment.
They were additionally given “‘bed bug bite-proof’ certified mattress encasements, a plastic bag for bed linens and suspected clothing and an interceptor collar for the bed post,” Sherrard said.
