Nebraska Fraternity Buying Bed Bug Insurance Policy

February 17, 2012

Fearing the costs of combatting bed bugs, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln fraternity is taking out insurance against an infestation.

Omaha television station KMTV reports that Sigma Phi Epsilon apparently doesn’t have a problem yet. But, with more than 75 people living in the house, the pests could migrate onto the premises.

The university has been battling bed bugs for several weeks. The pests have been detected in more than 50 dorm rooms.

Bed bug problems also have been reported at two other Nebraska colleges.
