Bed bugs causing problems in Peekskill
PEEKSKILL (WABC) -- You can see them in broad daylight, scurrying on a mattress, attached to a laundry bag and sitting on a nightstand.
Bed bugs are infesting apartments and impacting residents in Peekskill.
Bed bugs have also infiltrated several public housing developments.
Latitia Slay says the problem at Bohlman Towers has gone on for a couple of years.
She's thrown out her mattresses and numerous air mattress, and despite several fumigations, including one just last week, the bed bugs keep coming back.
Earlier this month frustrated residents took the matter to the city council.
Next month, Peekskill officials will hold a summit of sorts with building owners and superintendents.
