Bed bugs found in Johnston social services building
Posted January 28
Smithfield, N.C. — Johnston County officials shut down the Department of Social Services Main Building Thursday after bed bugs were found in the waiting area and a few offices.
The building, at 714 North St. in Smithfield, was treated by a pest control specialist on Thursday and would reopen at 8 a.m. Friday, officials said.
Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown insects that live by feeding off the blood of humans. They do not transmit disease, officials said.
