Seven of the nine Mansfield/Richland County Public Library locations have received an "all clear of bed bugs" from Hahn Pest Management.

Jean Ruark, communications coordinator, Mansfield/Richland County Public Library said three locations, Bellville, Butler and Lexington Branches, were all inspected two weeks ago; three more locations - Madison, Lucas and Ontario Branches were inspected last week. No evidence of bed bugs was found.

Ruark said the Main Library was re-inspected Thursday, February 20. All areas where traces of bed bugs were found two weeks ago were clear of any evidence. In addition to those areas within the Main Library, other library buildings were also inspected on Thursday.

No evidence of bed bugs was found at the Friends of the Library Evergreen Book Shop, the Communications Office and the Library Outreach Office, all located on the corner of Third and Walnut Streets.

Ruark said the First Call 2-1-1 office, located across Third Street from the Main Library, was also inspected. Ruark said one dead adult bed bug was found, on a wooden chair in the 2-1-1 public lobby. No other evidence was found. The dead bug was removed.

Ruark said as a precautionary measure, the lobby chairs will be heat-treated, and Hahn Pest Management will treat the area with chemical insecticide.

The remaining two branch locations will be inspected this week, The Plymouth Branch will be inspected Monday, the Crestview Branch on the 26th. The Main Library will be inspected again in two weeks.

Ruark said all library locations will be inspected by Hahn Pest Management on a regular basis.
