The Augusta City Hall in Maine was shut down last week because a man released 100 bedbugs into he building.
He had applied to the state’s “general assistance” program after his apartment’s bedbug problem was the reason his application at a new apartment got rejected. When the state informed him he didn’t qualify for assistance, he emptied a container filled with bedbugs onto the counter.
