Tampa, Florida - The USF student newspaper The Oracle is reporting that bedbugs have been found in Mu Hall of the USF campus dorms.
According to the report, Freshman Marly DiFrusco reported getting bites that turned into bruises when she slept in her bed. School officials performed a visual inspection that turned up no bedbugs, but after DiFrusco persisted they brought in bedbug sniffing canines that confirmed the existence of bedbugs.
DiFrusco and three other students have been relocated so that the dorms can be treated with 150 degree heat, which school officials say will kill the bedbugs and any bedbug eggs.
In the meantime, DiFrusco tells the newspaper she will be reluctant to return to return to her room.
