YORK, S.C. — A South Carolina courthouse has been evacuated after bed bugs were found there for the second time in just over two weeks, The Herald of Rock Hill reported.
York County Clerk of Court David Hamilton said specially trained dogs found evidence of bed bugs in both courtrooms of the criminal court building Thursday as well as in offices on both floors.
Hamilton told The Herald of Rock Hill officials decided to close the entire building for safety as a stronger chemical treatment is applied.
Bed bugs were found in parts of the building on Oct. 16.
Hamilton says the areas were treated then with heat, and testing afterward found no bugs.
