Bedbugs found in Mesa Public Library

MESA, AZ – ABC15  The Mesa Public Library will spend thousands of dollars to help prevent another bedbug infestation.

Bedbugs were found in the Main Branch this past week on 1st Street near Center Street.

According to Mesa spokesman Steve Wright, bedbugs were on chairs in the computer tech section and upstairs in a reading area.

The chairs were immediately thrown out after the incident was reported to staff, Wright said.

The city hired an outside vendor to check the rest of the library with a bedbug-sniffing dog. According to Wright, the problem has been remediated.

The library is open for business as usual.

This is not the first time bedbugs have been found in a library. The Norman Public Library, in Oklahoma, was closed this past week to treat bedbugs.

Libraries in New York, Colorado, and California have also reported cases.

According to Terminex, bedbug reports are on the rise across the nation. Phoenix-Metro is listed as an area with a “high bedbug threat” based on the number of reports at homes and businesses.
