EASTON, Pa. -

The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare office in Easton reopened to the public this morning, two days after bed bugs were found inside.

Spokesman Mike Race said exterminators went through the building at 201 Larry Holmes Drive yesterday in an attempt to rid it of the bugs.

Anyone who needed assistance were directed to the DPW's office in Lehigh County.

Race said if more bed bugs are found in the building in Easton, they will be dealt with after hours so clients are not impacted by a closure of the office.

Bed bugs are nothing new to Easton this year.

The city's housing authority recently dealt with an infestation at its Bushkill House apartment complex.
