    ST. JOHNSBURY ó The community of St. Johnsbury is dealing with a growing bedbug problem.

    The bugs were found in three apartment houses in town recently.

    Town Health Officer Troy Ruggles pointed out thereís been a growing bedbug program in other parts of the state, too.

    A pest control crew used blower fans to pipe 150-degree heated air into the affected apartments to kill off the bedbugs.

    Officials also said the presence of bedbugs isnít a result of poor housekeeping. Bedbugs are imported insects that are introduced by a person entering the building while a bedbug is on them.
