LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) – A beagle-mix trained to sniff out bed bugs discovered more bed bug-infested chairs at the Longmont Public Library.

Exterminators were working Monday to remove the bed bugs. The Longmont Times-Call reports that the dog named Macaroni found nine infested chairs over the weekend, including two that exterminators had already worked on last week.

Inspectors had previously found bed bugs on six chairs.

The library has not closed because of the bed bugs and library Director Judith Anderson says it will remain open. She says library officials are working on implementing a plan to regularly inspect for bed bugs.

    Frank the BedBug Chaser again and I saw this in Pest Management & Green Lodging. There is now an economical way for hotels, exterminators or anyone for that matter to use clean 100% Chemical Free & Green electric heat to get rid of bedbugs

    I wouldn’t go there. Wouldn’t want to risk all that headache.

    Some terribly infected family must be gong to the library a lot, that’s the only thng I can think of. I hope they don’t go to the movies, NYC has a bed bug problem in theatre’s. Yuk. Gotta watch where you sit in public places, a non fabric chair would be best!

    Few years ago I was going to the library a lot and I saw the same homeless people hanging around in chairs and lounge areas all day long. They did not look very clean. I figured what or where else could they spend a hot day downtown but it does bring problems.

    Use Greenbug for People to repel bed bugs. Greenbug is a safe, all natural pest repellent that works! If you lightly spray yourself and belongings with Greenbug – which is safe enough to drink and it smells good! – you will NOT pick up any bed bugs. If you have bed bugs, Greenbug for People works to kill them plus the eggs. Protect yourself with Greenbug for People! I can’t imagine why people don’t use this all the time – do they just not know about it?
