Cedar Rapids campus apartments treated for bedbugs

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Officials say students have returned to their rooms in a Mount Mercy University apartment building that was treated for bedbugs.

The Gazette reports that the Cedar Rapids building was treated on Tuesday.
University spokeswoman Jennifer Jentz says bedbugs haven't been a past problem at the Lower Campus Apartments.

Jentz says a student reported bedbugs to the residence life office on Monday. She says an exterminator confirmed bedbugs in that one apartment, but all four apartments in the building were treated as a precaution.

The residents were moved to other housing during the treatment. She says there will be a follow-up inspection of the building in two weeks.
