The Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority's Frank A. Sedita Apartments at Summer Street and Richmond Avenue are being treated for bed bugs.
The housing authority is treating all units in the building for bed bugs as "a preemptive strike" because the pests have been found in some apartments, an authority spokeswoman said Friday.
Since Jan. 1, 2015, there have been 530 "unique instances" of bed bugs among the more than 4,800 units the authority maintains citywide. That's a little more than 10 percent of all units.
The authority has spent about $150,000 dealing with bed bug problems over the last 21 months, the spokeswoman said.
