SILOAM SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A university residence hall in Siloam Springs has had two rounds of treatment to eliminate bedbugs.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (https://bit.ly/21CHsIq ) reports that John Brown University called a pest-control company in December and January to eliminate the bedbugs in Mayfield Hall, a women’s dormitory with 134 rooms.

The university’s vice president for student development, Stephen Beers, says no more than eight rooms were found to have bedbugs and that the university doesn’t have “significant ongoing concern.” Inspections of other campus locations haven’t found any evidence of the insects.

After students complained, treatment took place once during the university’s winter break and again after school resumed.

Beers says no students have been displaced except for one who chose to move to a different residence hall.
