Spraying For Bed Bugs Leads To Problems In Cleveland Field Office

     From the Cleveland Plain Dealer:
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown has asked the General Services Administration to investigate an incident in which some Social Security Administration employees who work in downtown Cleveland said they became ill after their office was sprayed for a bed bug infestation. 
Furniture from that office later was donated to Catholic Charities. ...
The spraying took place in February at the Social Security Administration office on the seventh floor of the Celebrezze building. After the spraying, workers complained of a chemical smell when they returned to their office. 
A worker told Fox8 that she suffered from vomiting, dizziness and tremors in her arms and legs. 
Brown's letter cites a recently released investigation by the Ohio Department to Agriculture that suggests pesticides intended for outdoor use only were used in the office.

Must be the same group that painted the turf in nearby Canton (Hall of Fame Game was canceled).

why were they spraying anyway--everybody knows heat treating those suckers is the only 100% effective way to get rid of bed bugs short of nuking the place
