Bedbug Found in Boston Inspectional Services Building


A bedbug was found Thursday inside Boston’s Inspectional Services Department offices on Massachusetts Avenue.

Lisa Timberlake, the agency’s director of publicity, said building officials were alerted to an “isolated report” of a possible bedbug sighting at the 1010 Massachusetts Avenue offices of the Inspectional Services Department on Wednesday.

As a precautionary method, building officials hired bedbug sniffing dogs, which were dispatched throughout the building at 6 a.m. Thursday.

A single bedbug was detected, and the area in question was immediately sealed and heat treatment and monitoring devices were brought in.
