Motel free of bedbug woes


WORTHINGTON -- The owners of a Worthington motel treated for the presence of bedbugs in mid-December want to ensure the public that they have taken every step possible to eliminate the pests from their rooms.

Dipesh Patel said four complete bed sets were purchased to replace the mattresses and box springs in the affected room, as well as two adjoining rooms at the Sunset Inn, 1923 Dover St. The affected bed sets were destroyed.
