SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — A bed
bug issue has some folks in Schenectady finding new places to sleep as they
wait for their apartments to be treated.

Management from Summit
Towers, a housing complex on Albany Street, tells the NEWS CENTER they've had
an exterminator working to get rid of bed bugs since April, but the bugs are
still a problem.

Reporter Christine O'Donnell
spoke to Peter Healey, a 73-year-old retiree who says he's been forced to sleep
on the floor because of this. 

“The exterminators
had to come in twice to my room, I lost my bed, mattress, box spring, a couch,
a lot of clothes, books, they're very, very hard to get rid of,” said Healey.

Management tells the NEWS
CENTER they're working to fix the problem daily, but say the issue is a two-way
street.
