Bedbugs are definitely a problem and can create a great deal
of financial and mental distress, especially among the elder.
The cause of bedbugs though is not the over crowding of apartments.
Overcrowding has occurred before the infestation began in the
Tongass Towers or Marine View Apartments. Most overcrowding is
due the economy and cost of living, so families are helping out
other family members or friends are trying to get by.
Bedbugs have nothing to do
with overcrowding. Bedbugs can be transferred in anyone's belongings
from anywhere. Overcrowding is not the cause of bedbugs or the
reason why bedbugs remain. Educating people on how to get rid
of them and if needed assist them.
