Bedbug Identification and Extermination Process

Main Page Content

Please review the information below to best understand our next steps while we investigate concerns of bed bugs & extermination:

  1. Notify your Resident Director (RD) or Townhomes Coordinator (TC) of any concerns you might have about potential bedbugs.
  2. If you have found an insect, take a clear picture, and email a copy to your RD or TC. DO NOT crush or kill the insect, put it in a zip lock bag so the exterminator can identify what type of insect it is.
  3. Please DO NOT wash or dry any of your bedding. Bedbugs leave behind evidence that the exterminator will find. If you wash bedding, it could make it difficult to determine if it is indeed bedbugs.
  4. Depending on the day of the week, the exterminator typically arrives to campus for an inspection on the same day or the following day. 

When the exterminator arrives, they will explain the details and instructions that you will need to follow for the appropriate treatment option that they recommend. If you have bedbugs, the exterminator will walk you through all the options to get rid of the concern. 

Your RD or TC is here to help you, please contact them if you have any questions or concerns.
