More infested apartments in Edmonton.

The Edmonton story is notable because it details how Robert Kirkland moved from one apartment infested with bed bugs, to another. When I first started reading, I wondered if he could have moved the bugs inadvertently with him. But the article states that Capital Health noted the building Kirkland moved into had an outstanding bed bug violation on record, that hadn’t been dealt with.

If Caryn is the first person to have gotten bed bugs again after 2.5 years bug free, Kirkland is the first I’ve heard of who appears to have moved from one infested home to another. Kirkland’s original residence was apparently next door to one featured in a news story last year.

Also in the news today, another non-descript dorm bed bug story. This time from Boston University.

And wouldn’t you know it? I am a BU alum and lived in that dorm (on that floor!). So wild.

Caryn, cue the chorus of high-pitched bed bug voices singing “It’s a small world after all!”
