Bed bugs infest South Carolina courthouse for second time in three weeks

A bug bed-infested courthouse in South Carolina was evacuated after the critters were found there for the second time in just over two weeks.

The bedbugs were widespread throughout the building, York County Clerk of Court David Hamilton said, according to The Herald.

They were found on Oct. 16, after which exterminators treated the affected areas with heat. Tests showed no evidence of bed bugs after the treatment.


Specially-trained dogs however found evidence of bedbugs in both courtrooms of the criminal court building and in offices on both floors Thursday.

The building was closed so that a stronger chemical treatment can be applied in hopes of eradicating the pests
