Bedbugs Found in State Office Building

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas officials say bedbugs have been found inside a state office building near the Statehouse targeted for demolition. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the pests were discovered on the third floor of the Docking State Office Building, west of the Capitol. The floor houses Department of Revenue offices. Department spokeswoman Jeannine Koranda said it has brought in an exterminator. She initially said the problem was confined to a small area with a handful of desks, but later said the exterminator will determine the extent of the problem. The state is moving offices for the revenue agency and the Department for Children and Families to other buildings next year. It plans to demolish the building because officials believe renovations of the 1950s-era high-rise would be too expensive.
