Pennsylvania Homeless Shelter to Reopen After Bed Bug Infestation

Shelter was shut down for almost the entire month of January.

| February 3, 2011

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — The Franklin County Shelter for the Homeless reopened this week  after an infestation of bedbugs forced its shutdown for almost the entire month of January.

After a recent inspection confirmed that the bedbugs were gone, shelter Coordinator Trudy Wesley was rushing to buy supplies Friday to get the shelter spick-and-span for new occupants by Tuesday.

A private extermination company conducted the inspection.

Wesley said a bedbug issue is not a health-related issue that would require an inspection by a state or local agency.

“We’ve always been inspected and exterminated by a private company. It (bedbugs) just got out of control,” Wesley said.
