The landmark Coatesville Towers Apartment building in Coatesville, PA has been evacuated because of a bed bug infestation. The population of the apartment building include one hundred elderly residents who are temporarily out of a home as exterminators are taking care of the problem.
Residents that have family nearby are staying with them while others are being well taken care of until their apartments are bed bug free. Bed bugs have made a resurgence because of the reduced use of pesticides which means that the exterminators are working extra hard to take care of the situation. The bed bugs should be completely removed in the next 24 hours due to making the temperature in the building 140 degrees. By using heaters and generators on every floor it will help blow heat into each apartment therefore killing the existing bed bugs and all their eggs.
If all goes according to plan residents will be able to return home soon.
