A class-action lawsuit against two downtown Des Moines apartment buildings for bed bugs will have a three day hearing for any objections on a proposed $2.45 million dollar settlement.
Payments to the estimated 300 current and former residents of Elsie Mason Manor and Ligutti Tower could range from $200 to $6,000.
Recent reports of bed bugs have also been made in the northwest Missouri area.
Environmental Public Health Specialist for Buchanan County, Thomas Beavers, says if you get bed bugs to call an exterminator.
Beavers says bed bugs usually enter homes when they are carried in by people. He adds it's not just homes that can see bed bugs.
