The health department wants you to be aware of bed bugs. Landlords, businesses and others learned how to treat, manage, and prevent bed bug infections at a workshop.

The workshop included a demonstration from k-9 bed bug detection. These special dogs are trained to sniff out a bed bugs infestation.
Once an infestation is found, getting rid of them correctly is key.

"Bed bugs hide in cracks and crevices usually around where people sleep and they're hard to find. and because they, they live in cracks and cervices you have to actually treat those cracks and cervices to get them, to control them. So you can't just do base board sprays and hit the legs of the bed, a lot more intensive treatments are needed to control 'em," said Barb Ogg, Extension Coordinator.

If you didn't get to attend this forum, you can find more information at the Lincoln-Lancaster Department of Health.
