ORCHARD MESA, Colo. (AP) - A family from Orchard Mesa is getting new furniture after abandoning their apartment to a bedbug invasion.
Cynthia and Gerald Skalla say they only lived in their previous apartment for a short time before they realized there were bed bugs everywhere. They said they sprayed the apartment several times, but the problem got worse.
The couple moved as soon as their lease was up and left their furniture behind.
A local charity gave the family a bed, a dresser, a kitchen table and chairs.
