RMC still treating 2 rooms for bedbugs 

Rocky Mountain College officials say they are still working to eradicate bedbugs in one of its residence halls.

Vice president for student life Brad Nason tells The Billings Gazette (http://bit.ly/wrNCS0 ) that bedbugs were found in four rooms in Widenhouse Hall in late August or early September.

Nason said Wednesday the building was treated, but the pests weren't completely eradicated. Another company treated the dorm around Thanksgiving and again over the semester break. Nason says he expects Rocky will end up spending about $30,000 before the treatments are over.

Nason says school officials believe the bedbugs arrived on campus in one student's luggage. Two rooms remain vacant and are still being treated.

Bedbugs are wingless, reddish-brown insects that bite people and animals to draw blood for their meals.
