WASHINGTON - There's good news and bad news about bed bugs in the District.

First, the good news.

It was recently reported that bed bugs were found at a D.C. Department of Health office on North Capitol Street. However, Gerard Brown, program manager for Vector and Rodent Control for the Department, says, "It was not an infestation, it was one bed bug."

The Department of Health's Vital Records Division gets many visitors seeking birth certificates and death records and Brown says the bug was found in a public waiting area, likely carried in on a visitor's clothing.

"An office building is not an ideal place for bed bugs," he says.

Bed bugs are mostly nocturnal and they prefer quiet, undisturbed areas.

And now the bad news.

"It's not getting any better," says Brown.
