Bugged resident sounds pest alarm

Bedbugs have become a real pest for one Calgarian who said she’s fighting to get rid of them.

Kelsey LaCroix, a resident of Dover Glen Estates who spoke exclusively to Metro, said she first noticed the bumps on her skin in March and originally thought they were stress hives.

“My boyfriend, one morning, he flipped over the blanket and he saw a blood smear and then he found (a bedbug) right on the bed,” said LaCroix.

After contacting building management, Mainstreet Equity, LaCroix said her apartment was sprayed, but the bedbugs were not completely gone.

LaCroix bought her own bedbug product and put up posters around the building warning other residents.

“I need everyone to know,” she said.
