Some students at Reinhardt University in Cherokee County are sleeping in the gymnasium after bed bugs were discovered in a dorm.
The bugs were found earlier this week in two rooms at Cobb Hall, an all-male dorm. WSB-TV reports that university officials say 71 dorm residents, all male, and mostly freshman, spent the past few days moving their belongings into quarantined storage units.
School officials say they hope the heat in the units will kill the bugs.
A professional exterminator is using heat and chemical treatments on the dorm rooms.
