Dill speaks to WMTW about bed bugs

WMTW (Channel 8 in Portland) spoke to Jim Dill, pest management specialist at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, about bed bugs in light of Portland Housing Authority (PHA) working to address a bed bug infestation in Franklin Towers as residents from two other PHA properties, Solterra and Bayside Anchor, report ongoing bed bug and cockroach infestations. “They’ll run underneath your door, out of your apartment and across the hall into another one. They’ll travel along pipes, they’ll travel along electrical wires. If you don’t eliminate them from all the units, it’s just going to get re-infested,” Dill said.
