From the University of Nebraska at Kearney:

Officials at the University of Nebraska at Kearney confirmed a second case of bedbugs has been found in a residence hall Thursday.

The second case is again isolated to a single room in the same hall where bedbugs were found earlier.

No bedbugs were found in rooms adjacent to, or above or below, the affected room.

A pest control company has been on site, conducted an in-depth inspection and will treat the affected room, as well as the rooms on both sides, and above and below, the affected room.

All five rooms will also have two follow-up treatments.

"We have a protocol in place and will be following that protocol," Dr. Earls said. "If students in the residence halls suspect bedbugs, they should contact residence hall staff immediately. Students seeking treatment for bites should contact Health Care."

While bedbugs are a nuisance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, they are not known to transmit disease.
