It will be pest control, not politicians, that tackle the next challenge at the Prince William County complex. Bedbugs have invaded some offices and the lobby, according to a Washington Post report.

Signs of the annoying blood-suckers was first found in a building on the Woodbridge campus, and later in the budget office, communication office and the main lobby in the McCoart building, according to The Post.

County Communications Director Jason Grant clarified the WaPo report in the comments section: "Unfortunately, this article grossly misrepresents the facts of the matter. There is no "infestation" of bedbugs in the McCoart building as is reported here. There were isolated areas of bedbug activity found in the building and those areas were treated yesterday. The Board Chamber and public areas of the County Complex are safe from bedbugs, so residents and the public are not at risk by attending the meeting. I hope this gives some clarification."
