COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WUSA) -- Bedbugs inside a dorm building at the University of Maryland in College Park are keeping students up at night.

The infestation has been documented in 2 apartments inside building 7 at the South Campus Commons.

Capstone is the the company that manages the property, and according to them they are aware of the issue and are working to rid the units of the bedbugs.

Alton Erwin, a spokesman with the company, would not elaborate on the status of the extermination, citing Capstone protocol prohibits that information from being public. However, he did say they were alerted to the issue in late September and described the issue as an "increasing problem."

Turna Mukherje, lives in one of the apartments that has bed bugs and said, "I keep waking up with bites."

9News obtained exclusive video of one of the infested apartments that shows the conditions those who live there have to deal with.

Their clothes and belongings have had to be bagged, and their beds stripped of their bedsheets.

Students said part of their frustration stems from the fact that they feel it took too long for the Commons staff to take action. In fact, one student said she had to actually capture a bedbug to prove the unit was infested and finally get the exterminators to come out.

An email has been sent out to all the students who live at Commons, notifying them about the bedbugs and urging them to submit a work order if they suspect a problem.
