What to do when you have pests in your room or in the residence halls:

Notify any of the following:

  3. Resident/Apartment Advisor
  4. Resident Director

Insects

If you see an insect, catch it with a piece of tape or a cup and save it for the pest control technician to identify.

Small Animals

Do not try to catch wild animals on your own. They may bite!

Raised Skin Bumps

If you have itchy red bumps, go to WWU Health Center (360-650-3400). This is not confirmation of bed bugs, but a symptom of a variety of conditions that need medical attention and diagnosis.
