Bedbugs have been found in one apartment at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where officials spent thousands of dollars in battling an outbreak earlier this year.
University spokeswoman Kelly Bartling says the bugs turned up at the University Park Apartments on East Campus. She says treatment experts found nothing when they searched dorms following other recent reports of bedbugs.
The discovery of the insect pests raised an unwelcome reminder of the bedbug battle this past winter at the university. Bartling says the university spent $450,000 and treated nearly 200 rooms.
Housing director Sue Gildersleeve says the university has bedbug policies in place so it "can react very quickly and it really shouldn't be a big deal from now on to go in and take care" of infestations.
