Bed Bugs and Libraries
Bed bugs seem to be popping up in hotels and apartments in the Milwaukee area and while they typically aren’t seen in libraries or library books, Kenosha Public Library wants to be sure we’re bug free, so we’re doing some simple things like putting out sticky traps in our workrooms and giving books a quick shake when we get them back. So far we haven’t spotted any bed bugs or heard any reports from patrons, but we’ll keep a sharp eye out just in case. We’re also pulling together a response plan with the help of the Kenosha Health Department, in the event that anything is discovered. If you’d like more information about bed bugs, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture provides basic information and pictures for identification.
