Vancouver Area Libraries Hit with Bed Bug Invasion

Bed bugs

A third library branch was forced to close after bed bugs were found nestling in the stacks this week.

| October 27, 2011

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada —  Bed bugs have caused a third library branch to close after the little critters were found nestling in the stacks this week.

The suburban New Westminster library was expected to reopen Wednesday after pest-control workers, including a bug-sniffing dog, ensured the books were bed-bug free, the Georgia Straight reported.

The bug-hunters were called in after one living bed bug and several dead ones were found in some books, which were quickly wrapped in plastic and thrown away.

The problem in New Westminster followed bed bug finds at two library branches in neighbouring Burnaby, including the main Metrotown branch. It forced the libraries to close while they cleaned. Since then, librarians have been checking each book as it comes in, the CBC reported.
